Thanks SO much, Les. Hopefully I'll be able to figure out what's going wrong with the camera and start putting up stuff more like I used to. #7615668

Gorgeous colors and beautiful flowers Vicki. These truly are bee magnets.

Have fun with your camera. Go somewhere and play with all the settings. Come home and look at the metadata, see what works and what doesn't. Then go do it again. It just takes practice. Good luck and congratulations on your new camera!!

Be a good one to hang on the wall of a cabin in the mountains...

Thanks for your encouragement Melinda, Donna, Bob & Errick. I've been shooting like crazy, going over settings and trying new stuff, but still NOT happy! Guess it's time to call Canon and find out why. Hey Bob..have you had any problems with your 50D? #7629371
