Yesterday was dry, if a bit breezy, so we went up to Cadbury Castle (rather a grand name for a hump in a field), which is an Iron Age hill fort.

The shots of the hump are fine (apart from being boring and 2D - humps don't make very good images). But I find all my distant shots are blue and hazy. In fact I find that the main fault of all my distant shots - is it an error I'm making, or something to do with not having a 'real' camera?! I've found not even PS can save them!

The views from the top are stunning, but perhaps would be better in the winter when there are no leaves on the trees and on a crisp, frosty day when there's no haze.

I know what you mean Karen..sometimes it is just the light . I sometimes have this problem too and I have a Nikon D 50 which is supposed to be a really good camera. I get so dispirited sometimes when the sky looks greyish white and there is a haziness to everything.
I think there is much more to my camera that I have to learn about and certainly more to PS..I am hopeless at that. After Christmas I should have more time and will capture some 'me time' to learn all those things that I don't understand now !
That is as long as babies don't take up all my time ! Smile

So what do you have if you don't have a "real camera" Karen?

Well, I think it's real - but I feel there is a little snobbery about cameras (one lady on here even said the swivel screen was just a 'gimmick')!!! But I'm proud of my little camera, it does everything I want and more - though getting even closer to bugs would be nice!!
