Hi Diane
As yesterday see my comments, there is something wrong, the camera is set to Program AE and not Aperture priority see Exif info! When the camera is in Aperture Priority you set the Aperture and the camera sets the speed, the camera is setting a very shallow depth of Field for this type of capture f3.5 and the ISO to 64 could be 100 or 200 without creating noise! Saying that it is a very good capture with excellent tones and exposure.

Regards

Trev.

Morning TrevSmile
I am well confusedTongue Just been back to my camera to the settings............. Battery going flatSad
I was using Aperture Priority setting but it also says AE when it is set on this............ The shots I took on this were all very different with light depending on how I altered the aperture.......... I was using the histogram as a guide.
I haven't got round to the focusing bit yet....... I want to fathom this bit first. And yes the tripod is on my shopping listGrin Thanks for your helpSmileSmile

Hi Diane.
I am confused! You have the control for the settings like P this is program mode, does every thing for you, A this should be aperture priority mode, you just set the aperture and the camera sets the shutter speed, in this mode you also set the ISO, S this should be shutter priority mode, you set shutter speed and camera sets aperture, you set ISO, or M for manual mode, you set shutter and aperture also ISO. have a read of the camera manual as something is going wrong, if you click on the Exif tab you will see all the settings that have been used for this capture! I hope I am not going to fast for you, if you feel happier just leave the camera on the auto mode, you will still get reasonable captures.

Regards

Lovely composition, Diane. I like the strong lead in from the left hand corner and the choice of viewpoint on a slope which accentuates the height of the trees.

All too technical for me too really .. but
whatever, it has turned out a lovely capture.
Caught the height and depth of the forest on the slope.
Well done Diane.

It's a great shot and you have a great camera! Just keep experimenting, you can read the Exif (what ever that stands forWink) if you right click your image and go to properties just keep experimenting its great fun and you are certainly getting good results

I am going to fathom this out Trev............ One way or another..........
Going to look at the manual. The other day while I was on this setting I pressed something by mistake and got up a circle that was the focal point, You could make it larger or smaller...... I am presuming this was for dof, But I dont know how i found itTongue
Anyway also the other day in Derbyshire with the camera on this setting all day. whatever it maybe........., I decided to try it back in auto too look at the difference....... and immediatley switched back because on auto it was too bright and a bit washed out. I will get to the bottom of it, I am enjoying playing any howGrin

That's it Diane, don't give up, keep experimenting, you will find your way around the settings and probably find the one that you like best and then it will just be little tweaks. I am still trying to fine tune my bird shots. You have achieved a nicely detailed, well balanced image. The sky showing through the trees is very good too, not 'blown'.Grin Carole

Well.............................................. I am munching my way through the instruction manualTongueWinkTongue............I am not an instuction manual kind of person............... I didn't get where I am today by reading instruction manualsGrinGrin
I am on the right setting for aperture priority, it is called Aperture AE and it automatically sets the shutter speed, or I could use Shutter priority AE which automatically sets the aperture.
I have found some very interesting features of the camera that I didn't know about.............. More playtime coming I thinkGrinGrinGrinWinkWink

Old saying.......'When in doubt......read the....' Smile It happens to us all Diane. The image is nicely framed and exposed. It could be brightened a bit, but don't sweat it Smile Have fun and it will all fall into place (or apart...!) eventually SmileWink

I do like the comp..

Not sure about your camera but A is right for some cameras but TV on some other cameras...
I would look at back of camera..
If you look at F reading move dial to see if that goes up in numbers turn other way to go down...
Then you found Apture setting...
If you like shap image then F16 or above but you may need tri-pob as shutter will stay open longer...
Low number like F2.8 will be sharo in focus area only..
See my little owl in the wall to see that in type of image..
Get your head around that first..
I used a table and put 3 items on it focus up on middle took lots of photos at diffrent f stops and work out what they do and that help understand about shutter speed with F stops..
Please have a go...

Some times read a little play alot and that should help you understand..
Shutter and Apture are link...
One goes up the other goes down...
That why I surjest table top image and play with setting take notes as you set and shoot..
Iso help balance the two of them...

You sound like a real bloke, Diane! Manuals R Not Us.Grin I remember how frustrated and annoyed my wife got the one time she tried to get me to understand how to work the washing machine....Wink Mind you, I was merely playing stupidWink

The only thing missing from the not-so-lonesome-pine image is some brightly coloured flowers in the fg. Like the angle between the trees and the slope, diagonals are always good.

Keep going...half the fun is finding out what the camera can do.

Just got Practical Photography mag today spring 2012 and thought of you...
If you get this mag or go to the shop look at page 54 Shoot with semi-auto modes.
Page 56 is understand the histogram...
Page 58 is take better portraits...
Thought it may help you...
