We bought our son a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 for Christmas and he finally got enough time to really play around with it. He took it on his field trip last month & I was pretty impressed with his shots. He did all of the post processing himself as well. He's a little bit of a photo geek (must take after me). Here are a few of my favorites...









These were all taken at the Carl Sandburg Home in Flat Rock, NC.

The coffee tastes so much better when you have a great location - dont you think?

More of "pretty darn good in bad lighting" than a great photo..but yesterday we happened to have a flyover of C-130's. Since I happened to have my HX30 on my belt strap pouch, I changed it to Auto, zoomed to the max, and got this (only slightly cropped). I was mostly impressed the shutter speed was fast enough to capture the propellers on this highly overcast day:

The star trails theead astrophotography inspired me to go out and take a few night sky pictures last night. I haven't fired up GIMP to stack those, yet.

I did find Saturn with my 20x point and shoot. Of course this is highly cropped



I've seen better pictures from 50x bridge cameras, but its fun to get a halfway recognizable shot of Saturn's rings from a nearly pocketable PnS without any extra equipment than a basic tripod.

Thank you! I actually don't have a clue about settings but I used my old Kodak point and shoot. I don't even know the model anymore because it was 2 cameras ago... sorry.

From this past Sunday, July 21, 2013 -- Catalina Island in Southern California

Catalina Express is offering free round-trip boat rides (a $72.50 value) to everyone on their birthday through the end of April 2014 -- although this is the 3rd year in a row they have run this free birthday promo.

This is the second year I have taken advantage of the free birthday promo, and the photos from last year's trip and this year's trip look dramatically different in terms of color, because it was very sunny in 2012 and very overcast this year!



While Catalina is a very scenic, picturesque place and there are many postcard-worthy shots just waiting to be captured, I should preface the following photos by saying that these are in no way my best shots. I have taken much, much better photos -- on Catalina, at Disneyland and around my neighborhood -- in the past, some of which I have already shared in this thread. Circumstances were not conducive to getting really good pictures on this particular day. The sun was not out for a large part of the day, and I was having some health issues that made it difficult to concentrate and get in the mood for the usual photo spree I would embark on.

But, nonetheless...I wanted to represent Catalina a little bit more (I think I already posted a photo or two from my 2012 trip to the Island in this thread, possibly), and so here are a few of my recent efforts!




On the Express boat out of Long Beach (where the TV show "Dexter" is filmed) to Catalina Island, sometime between 6:15 and 7:15 a.m., the sun made a dramatic appearance. But it didn't stick around for too long!






Flowers in Avalon (Catalina's main town) - it may have been overcast, but it was a warm, muggy day...




















Night falls on sleepy Catalina's iconic Casino, and the sea lion I had been watching ducked underwater before I could snap his picture!
