4/7 Stowe Meadow Path

    Newer Older


    We went to Stow Landscape Gardens this morning, the perfect activity for a sunny summer morning. I took lots of photos using my DSLR but I've still got 4 days of my Project 7 to go, so I had to take a few with my compact camera too... including this one of a path through a meadow, which was teeming with butterflies and other insects.

    Using the two cameras side-by-side has really made me appreciate the difference in quality. Although it's possible to get a good photo out of the compact but because the software is so much slower to react, and because you rely on it to choose the right ISO, exposure, focus point, etc. there seems to be a lot of luck involved rather than skill. That's not to say there aren't good compacts, just not mine (which incidentally is a Nikon S220).

      This is stunning.. and out of a compact? Great DoF! I think a lot of it is the photographer and their eye. Yours is great!

      You can definitely tell there is a difference in quality, but it also goes to show how important the composition is and no camera can make up for that. Well done!

      Whether you use a P&S or anything else, I can still see the beauty of this area:)

      this is wonderful. I love the lead in, and how it stops only to break into different ones. very nice tones too. great work, especially for a point and shoot!

      beautiful view! after working with my DSLR, it would be so tough to go back to a point-and-shoot....
