    I really like this scene, very picturesque and tranquil - excellent composition. A couple of thoughts. First and foremost, it needs to be leveled; the water is running out of the frame image left and on to my desk. The other thought is that a couple of stops worth of G-ND filter would have taken this image from nice to REALLY nice.

    I doubt that there's anything wrong with your camera. Noise is almost prominent in under-exposed images.

    I like going for dark silhouetted foregrounds, but to each their own I've heard said.
    Man, I thought I finally had a level horizon, is it really that far off or are my eyes just that horrible?
    What type of neutral-density filter could I use with my A3000IS?

    IMO BW would have been perfect for this shot....
    Here's a version with some tint to it. If ya like it...

    Man, I hate the noise! What can I do about noise...the iso is already at 100...what else would produce noise outside of the obvious small sensor size, post-processing of a compressed file, and immediate jpeg compression (no raw format availability) in-camera?

    I think the horizon is level...Maybe he was referring to the silhouetted ground line?

    Great shot in B & W.

    There are safe user firmware hacks available. The firmware loads from the memory card, and when that card is removed, it reverts back. It's a great tool to give added functionality to Canon PowerShots and some other models.

    Canon CHDK.
