    Nice. from the Little India photoshoot? Your second pic looked a bit underexpose though... maybe it is my monitor... my monitor was not calibrated.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    Yea, but changed plans cos raining so went to meet them at ochard thou, the group meeting was unproductive, there are some nice people who helped but in overall people are all doing their things. No disrespect to them but maybe its just not my type of outing, so in the middle of outing me and 2 other guys broke off and went to take pictures on ourselves. Somehow i find that when taking picture with a group (with people whom i never talked before etc) i feel that my creatively is supressed. All these pictures are taken when im alone. (last blue lights xmas tree) was with the 2 guys but they are not with me that time. Its like mind is occupied trying to follow and catch up with the rest and not enough time to look around for worthy pictures. Me and another member got lost 2 times and didnt know where they went lols. Maybe that outing is not suitable for me But still they are nice people la.

    To be honest my eyes are still very raw, cant really tell whats underexposed or overexpose, i see colour and brightness tone is natural and just nice with eyes im ok with it. Think i must take more pictures....

    Night shot was the same location as my 2nd night shot.

    Bokeh shot is at paragon shopping mall

    Xmas tree is from Takashimaya mall

    All pictures are fresh out of camera, no post processing done except for resizing to smaller format for faster loading time to view (havnt learn how to post process =/)

    Another picture... xmas tree of paragon shopping mall

    First time, lat tat one lah. No worries. Anyway your pics seemed quite alright. But somehow those christmas trees doesn't seemed too focused... where is your focus point? And from what I see, you have been taking picture straight on the subject. You can try to take it from different angle - eg. from bottom up and things like that. It might make your picture more interesting.

    Not sure about Sony's system... so cannot advise on the mode and focusing. But I think picture sharpness is not as important as composition of a photo (of course that does not mean shooting something tat are totally out of focus, unless you are being creative and wanted to try something new, lol)... and that is why I think, you could experiment on getting an object at different location and direction... or angle, it will make your photo abit more interesting.

    Mr Rhino, something I wanna ask. My canon 450D got 9 AF points, I tried both Automatic Focus selection point and Manually select focus point, but lets say I want to take photo of something which I want everything to be in focused. But when I select Manually selection point, it can only select one point? Or can select all the 9 focus points? I tried but only can select 1 point. Then I want to get everything focused in my frame, like a class photo or something similar, some parts seems to be not that well focused. Is there something I missed out from the manual? Please enlighten me

    Ermm, mayb u can use a smaller f stop and bump up a little ISO to get more DOF? MF will get the job done. It's jus my opinion.

    The way to achieve good focus for something like a class photo is to increase your f-stop and not to adjust the point of focus. More focus points will not help with your depth-of-field.

    using a wider angle will help too, lesser background compression.

    Then where did you focus? If let's say there are 3 rows, you should focus on the middle row, also take into account your distance to the subjects and whether there is camera shake.

    Hmm I usually set to auto selection of focus point, if I see got some issues with it, then I set manually selection which is normally center.
