On the second photograph... did you use your flash? It looks almost 3D... very cool!
Yes, as the sun was casting hard shadows I used the flash to lighten . . . thanks!
I have just spent way too long exploring your blog and I am hooked. BTW...I'm envious of your camera skills and in the market for a camera... any helpful hints??
Great glad you like it!I use the Sony Cyber-shot 5.1 MP DSC-W5 it seems to do the job for what I want. Check out: http://www.bhphotovideo.com for pricing of current models. Mine allows for shooting video as well a great option when you have little ones.
Thanks for posting a comment. Your thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated!
