A few shots I took this evening from the yard. The sun was getting low, the light was sparkly – full of humidity from all the rain – and everything looked fresh and clean.
I shoot with a Panasonic DMC-FZ35 with a Lumix lens and generally leave the cameral set on IA. Not very creative I realize but that is where I am in this whole photo thing. I sometimes crop but try to set the photo the way I want it and I occasionally tweak the color or contrast. Sometimes more, but not too often.
