    Can say its a straight shot except that i cropped the image abit.

    The ghosting is inevitable, because it was really crowded.

    Nice shot Melvin.

    I saw the ghosting on that pic. I agree with you. sometimes its just hard to get a better shot from a crowd.

    I disagree with the ghosting bit... you can PP away all the 'ghosts' especially the bottom part where its all water.

    Hi Clunk !

    looks like it must have been beautiful.. jetty, picture, fishing !!

    think it cld have been just a slightly better if the 1/3 rule was applied.. maybe jetty slightly lower... but i guess u wanted to include the rocks correct ?

    just my tiny 0.2cents

    yea maybe the rock, half ain't so bad... anyway if u place it at lower 1/3 position like wat vinze say, most probaly u will be able to see a better gradient of the sky.. eg from yellow all the way to orange...

    below a pic taken at punggol using FZ18...

    Exposure: 0.2 sec (1/5)
    Aperture: f/3.6
    ISO : 100

    the diff gradient from blue to white to orange

    This is taken by fz28 using the iA mode.
    I still have difficulties using the manual mode.


    Found out that this is taken with a speed of 1/100, F3.8

    nice pic ahkat, very good depth of field (blurred background effect)... anyway in order to archieve tat, u will need to use low F-stop... F2, F2.4 etc... and in ur case its F3.8
    anyway, u can learn to use photoshop... adjust the curve abit, u may improve the colour of the pic

    u can try using aperture pirority to do depth of field effect and adjust the F-stop

    Thanks Vinze and Sky guy, Ahkat very nice shot. I too have to force myself to keep away from iA (Auto) on my new camera. Especially when you see a shot and have to grab it quickly. I now make it a habit to leave my camera set on aperture priority all the time and try to keep away from iA. Jeffrey Siow (pro photographer Sony) told me "Control the aperture and you control the essence of the photograph."

    Thank you guys for the advises.

    For FZ18/28, when in the aperture mode, can we adjust the exposure? I can't use manual mode mostly due to over or under exposure. And I can't find where to adjust it.

    at aperture mode, u can adjust the exposure, by clicking one of the button at the right side, which will lead u to the exposure adjustment menu...

    but at manual mode, u won't be able to adjust it i think... manual mode is also call exposure mode... where u adjust aperture, iso and shutter speed only, and the camera will let u know wat is the exposure going to be... thus cannot be adjusted

    Hi Ahkat
    Just playing around with a few ornaments and a candle to get bokeh (blurry background) effect.

    Clunk, were you standing near the objects? I thought at f4.5, the focus can be further?

    Ok I'll try playing with the aperture mode this weekend.
