    I have just come back after a ten day vacation in South India. An absolutely awesome trip. Got to take some nice pictures. Here is what I took on the first day while driving from Bangalore to Cottabetta Coffee Plantations in Coorg - on the highway . . .

    nice!

    Was playing around with the aperture priority setting on the weekend whilst we were harvesting. Think I left it about an hour too late re: light, so think some of the shots were too dark. Any tips/suggestions would be much appreciated

    Hey SJS, what's your contact id on Flikr? Would like to add you as a contact so I can see your photos, but searching for 'SJS' didn't work

    Mine is 'sonofcoco' if it's easier to find me first.

    Here are a few shots from our Tasmania trip last week too. Only have about a thousand to sort out

    Sunset on Mt Wellington (a few days before it snowed...)

    It is Swaranjeet (SJS)

    Added you just now.

    Lovely photographs by the way. The one titled Giant Rocks at the Bay of Fires is stunning.

    Hi mate, I really like these two. It seems you weren't too late to get some of the golden sunset, which is nice (although these two might have just missed out! You can always go again the next day though a bit earlier).

    The only suggestions I can think of at the moment are:

    in 1) move the crop (I have no idea what that plant is haha) away from the right-hand side of the frame a bit. If it was about 1/3 of the way across and in line with the harvester I think it would look better.

    And in 2) maybe separate the crop and the harvester - i.e have the flower on one side of the frame and the harvester on the other (maybe diagonally opposite) so it's not blocking out the harvester in the background.

    Maybe then you'd have two different themes, with the first suggesting the harvester is bearing down on the plant, whereas in the second the distance would suggest it will live to fight another day (yet its demise in inevitable).

    Feel a bit like a target of that Dr in the old SBS show 'Life Support' who used to go around to art museums and other sites of pretentiousness and make a wanking motion with his hand after saying that...but anyway.

    I had a G7, was a good camera to learn all the manual functions etc on. Until it stopped working after about 3 years...I think the newer models have improved on that issue slightly though.

    I remember hearing that the G11 wasn't that much of an improvement on the G10 (most preferred the former I think), but I haven't read much about the G12. Good cameras if there are no issues with the new upgrade and they last longer than 3 years.

    Personally, if I get a compact camera again it'll be one of the Four Thirds cameras like this:

    Panasonic unveils DMC-GF1 Micro four-thirds camera: Digital Photography Review

    Saw them going very cheap on one of the American online camera stores not long ago (Adorama or B & H). You still have to spend more money to get different lenses though, so for your needs I'd spend a bit of time checking out what people say online about the G12 (google 'G12 reviews' to start) and if there are no problems reported then go for it.

    Hey have any one of you had experience with one of these - DCR-150 Macro conversion lens for D-SLR camera



    Not for professional work obviously but I just wanted to experiment and thought it would be something handy to have around. Thoughts?

    Thats a great choice. If I had to buy a point and shoot , thats the one I would buy even if there was no price limit.. Dont be tempted by those with higher zoom. The quality will suffer. Go for this one.

    No experience with this but I would urge you to go for the extension tube route. A Kenko set comes at a very reasonable price. A set of three will cost under 170 USD. Trust me there are few things in the camera lens world which are better value for money.

    They make them for both Canon and Nikon cameras. Make sure you get the one you need. Here are the links.

    FOR CANON

    FOR NIKON

    One more thing, even professionals are known to use these :-)
