    Others like them only in photos... But I thought, hey, why not let you take part in my manual focussing experiments (took me 6 months to figure that one out with my little compact digi... well, I have never been one for the manuals, you know, else I might have known for LOOOOOOOONG.... :roll: ) that I did with the help of... look for yourselves (only natural light through the kitchen window):

    I love the soft colours. The focus is pretty good too.

    Thanks for the reply, Peter.
    And yes, it seems like after having had my little compact digital camera for more than 6 months (!), I have finally detected the "P" function... :roll: (already, eh?), having learned how to focus manually (but I feel it is only worthwhile going there if I want to move up very close to things, for this seems to allow me to move in even closer than I can with the "flower"-function - the icon that stands for something they call "macro"), finding out that I can deliberately underexpose in steps (yes, that, too, took me over 6 months to find out :roll: ), and to make use of the "strong" function (bringing out a better saturation).

    Yes, yes, yes. I am slow on things sometimes. Mostly when "being quick" would involve studying a manual. Grrr. Hate that. I like to play my way into things.... ;)

    OMG Corinna! Those are amazing! You took those with your little toy compact? (Not such a toy or compact anymore eh!!:shock: )


    Your eye for good subjects and composition and a little camera you can now control has produced 5 excellent shots!:thumbup: :hail:

    Great shots, LaFoto! Especally for my eyes, as I looooove tomatoes :)!
    Speaking of manuals - I'm the same way. Just shoot & learn ;)!

    Great shots Corrina, you have made me hungry. Health tip for all the men out there, Tomatos are good for the prostate.

    Thank you all!
    To tell you the truth, I myself am quite pleased with the outcome of these, too.
    Compensates me for the continuing trouble I am having with my "repaired" SLR...

    Glad to be able to make you happy.
    When I chose the title, I was actually thinking of our new member, LONDON-GB, who posted a photo of tomatoes and nothing but tomatoes the other day, but apparently a good many other members have come (and liked, yay :D) my banana-tomato pics, too.
    Goodie :mrgreen:
