    Having bought a Pani FZ50 for my trip to Scotland (via the lakes) last week, I thought I would share a few first attempts.

    Let me know what you think.

    very natural colours, cept for the first one, seems to have lost a little colour.

    Personal, thing, dont like b&w. There are exceptional photos done that way, but, mo.

    Looks like you had a bit of trouble exposing the first one correctly and the horizon needs adjusting to level as well. Nicely composed though, just lacking detail due to exposure.

    Personally, i'd crop the bottom half off the second picture and make it more letterbox format, this improves the composition loads and makes for a much more pleasing image.

    The third shot I really like, nicely composed and exposed.

    The fourth is also a nice one, slightly blown in the mid section of the water but a nice shot all the same.

    Thanks for the replies, I really struggled with the first shot, it was so bright off the water it made finding the right exposure very hard. The camera's auto mode couldn't cope at all I ended up taking the shot (manual mode) with the following settings ISO-100 f/9 1/400sec. Could have done with taking the first shot later in the evening really!
