I treated myself to a new Lumix FZ-150 recently but had little opportunity to use it out of doors until the rain finally stopped at the end of January. As bright sunshine shone down on the River Dee, my eye was caught by the bright colouring of these ducks, which I think the Lumix has captured well.

Yes its captured it well Smile...i like the detail in the ducks and the composition works, just think the color cast requires a tiny bit of correction, i have loaded a mod in terms of what i think this should look like ,,,have also played around a bit with the tonal contrast to see if more detail could be brought out....

Also the second duck seems to be a bit softer when compared to the first one

Cheers

Two Mallard drakes in formation and fairly well captured. The definition seems just a tad off and I think a software sharpen at a low level will just add the finishing touch. Digital cameras are inherently slightly unsharp. Compacts have sharpening alogrithms built in, but these are much reduced in strength in 'better' cameras as the manufacturers assume the photographer will do some sharpening.
