Beautiful image Jane. I can see this as a wedding invitation or thank you card! Very very nicely presented!! #2938626

Norman P. Banks June 23, 2006

Hi Jane!

The 8 mp's of your new camera really do a nice job with the sharpness of detail and clarity in this image.(I can almost taste the cake frosting)



Jane Summa June 23, 2006

Chastity, Thank you! My eyes are always moving..making sure to not miss out on a photo opportunity. Sometimes we take everyday views for granted, not realizing the beauty it holds. When you see it, it holds interest, point and shoot! :-)

Pat, Thank you for your graphic comment. Detail is one thing but bringing out what the eye actually sees is a plus!

Wendy, Thank you..Great idea! I just may use this for their wedding card!

Norm, Thank you...I think this just made you and Pat hungry for sweetness :-)! I wasn't sure how the 8mp was going to work for me; knowing how and what I like to shoot. I agree that it worked well with this shot. The 10x optical zoom is what I'm missing & no viewfinder!

Thank You All for your comments! Your support has helped increase my confidence :-)! #2940403

Mata Patan June 24, 2006
