I loved the reflection in the water. It was just the right place for a bench. I thought the whole picture would be too dark, but was pleased with the overall picture. I'm not used to cropping and am not sure if would help to try to reduce the darkness in the foreground. I do not have filters or many changes that I can make with this camera and would like to know where to go next in buying a camera that would help develop my skills.
Thanks for looking and I would value advice

Hello helenlinda! I like this photo, which achieves the aim stated in the title. I've looked at your p/f; you are certainly developing some photographic ideas.
I can't decide where you are based, but the photo has a UK look. In that case the best source of gear is the epz store, which I was using before I heard of epz! But you would do well to bide your time a bit and visit the epz forums; you might find a member local to you who can give you some hints as to local camera dealers who would be prepared to help out.

Above all, keep looking at the epz galleries and seeing which images work and which don't.

Best wishes
Bill

Okay, have just googled Lickey Hills - should have done that in the first place.....There should be plenty of epz members near you. The ball is in your court!

This looks like a nice quiet place to sit and relax. I like the silhouetted seat and branches in the foreground. Did you get any help in deciding which camera to purchase?.

Thanks for your comments today Roger
This camera was bought by my husband as he thought it would be good to have a didital one. It was his choice and he bought it from Aldi on offer! He doesn't use it and so I've started to. I have no idea at all what to move on up to and this has very few choices but I'm reding up on it and starting to try out different settings.
Any ideas welcome
Helen
