This is the first artistic image I've attempted with the new Canon A1200. I'm quite impressed with it, and have uploaded this image straight off the camera with zero post processing. I think the colors are very snappy and contrast is good. I had to hunt a while at 200% magnification before I found any chromatic aberrations. I put the camera on scene mode and selected Landscape which gave a setting of f/8 and ISO 80.
Also, I took this at a vacant lot next to the tire shop while I was waiting for them to rotate the tires. This is the perfect example of why I bought this camera, to always have one on me and be able to snap an image anywhere.
