yes, nice photo. Was it the finepix 602 or 206? If it´s the 602zoom, I would love to exchange some opinions because i´ve been thinking about buying it (although now i´m thinking about G3).Su, Portugal #119364

Nicely done and a good theme, Alan! I like the layered look :-) #119545

Hi Hannah, Sharon, Susana and Gary
Thanks a lot for your nice comments. The layered look comes from the blue sky, the wall of the terrase and the shadow, that the wall on the other side of the terrasse casts.
And: Sorry - my fingers have played a trick on me: The model is the Finepix 602 Zoom,Susana. But the camera is still very new to me, so I don't really know it 100 %. But until now I have no regrets whatsoever having bought it!
