    After I have seen all our other pics, these make me wonder why they are so noisy, looking so oversharpened at the same time? Was it a different (still simpler) camera? Or are they scans from prints? Is it age showing in the pictures?

    I think I like the first and last best. The first is downright CUTE, no doubt, and the last has nice colours and a pleasant aura of serenity to it.

    I absolutely love Morro Bay, definitely something I miss after leaving L.A.

    We used to make the road trip up there at least a couple of times a year. Ahhhhh yeah, missing that place. Nice to see it again!

    Agree. And the colors are a bit flat. To me, it seems like the ISO is too high (you can see it on grainy sky in the last photo). Otherwise, the photos are very nice!

    Yeah, these are more snapshots than photos- thank God I didn't put them in critique! They were taken about 6 years ago (showing their age) with a Sony Mavica. The only setting I made on the camera back then was setting the white balance on hold. I have some, some where that I shot on a Nikon 990 that may be a little better quality, but these make me homesick for the place.

    I have a trip planned for next (late) spring, but might try to get out there this winter. I just spent a few days at a seminar in Los Angeles listening to a couple National Geographic photographers and want to try a few new things with my d70. As well as incorporating some of these comments. Thanks.
