    Sorry about taking so long to get back to you, Doogie.
    I have a Panasonic Leica DC Lens. Lumix.
    10x Opitical Zoom.  28mm Wide Angle.  3.0″ LCD. 9.1 megapixels. HD Photo 1920 x 1080.

    Intelligent Auto Mode…. Optical Image Stabiliser / Intelligent Scene Selector / Face Detection (up to 15 faces), Intelligent Exposure, Intelligent ISO Control.

    I’ve had it a number of years so it’s certainly not the latest technology wise..

    Hi val019

    Don’t be put off by the age of your camerd, it has within it a good range of technology. to improve your photoghraphy pick out a simple subjet such as attached or a fancy piece of china placed on an uncluttered background and try getting in as closw as you can keeping the camera very still to get sharp focus. playing around on a simple subject is a good way to get a feel of your camera.
    Post you best shot so we can look at it

    Hi Doogie, I didn’t have time today to find, as you suggested, a particular item to photograph.
    I will definitely have a go tomorrow. In the I would be grateful for any comments you may have in regard to my flower photos

    Thanks for your three photos
    Comments.
    Always, when taking a photo keep in mind what will show in the background that will spoil the image you are taking. Where possible and if times permits try and avoid including things that don’t add to your image.
    One;
    The yellow roses
    On the left top corner is a bright patch of light that adds nothing to the image. This may or may not have been possible to avoid

    Two;
    The red flowers
    A much better photo with reasonably good focus

    Three;
    Yellow flowers in a vase
    This is a very good image. The contrast of the yellow flowers and the green stalks against the white vase and the light background makes a perfect photo. Because the ornament to the right is so light in shade you get away with it being there but the black book on the table is a no no. Had the ornament been a darker colour it would have drawn the eye away from the primary subject, the flowers. Well done on this one

    Doogie – thanks for the comments – much appreciated 🙂

    Yes, I can see what you mean regarding the bright spot top left of the rose photo – it actually detracts from the rose.  That branch was above my head so my camera was pointing toward the sky – I will keep that in mind for future photos.

    The ‘black book’ is a green placemat – I never even thought about that when I took that photo- so I must pay more attention to the details from now on.

    This is great – thanks once again. Is it OK if I send more photos for your comments?
