Kodak z 650 and the apple challenge

is started... I used a derwent wc pencil...paynes grey?? to sketch it in before I get out the DS wc...that will have to wait till i get home...
IN the meantime decided to use this as a comparison for my beloved Kodak Z650...I took pics of it in the snow view with and without the flash and then the lightest one was enhanced with quick fix in Corel Photo on my old pc...have not bought photo software yet for the mac...and santa didnt bring me any...guess he brought me enough this year :>

These are pictures of the Ballet all the kindergartners went to at Augusta State University...performed by Augusta West (I think...is that right Boasso?!) Anyway the first one is before I changed to the sports setting with the flash from I would say at least 100 feet away...I think it was the night setting...The last are taken with the sports setting and the flash...it allows you to shoot high speed. I also have a high speed card for the camera or shoudl I say a High Performance memory card instead of a regular one...the picture turned out well but I do wish I had turned the camera...ah well nothing is perfect right??!

Maggie! GREAT GREAT apple sketches, and your capturing of such movement leaves me breathless. My own Fuji camera is so slow, I'm hoping to find an affordable digital that can capture movement! SUPER JOB!

Love the apples.

I know what you mean about cameras. I have a fairly new one, and I just can't always get it to do what it's supposed to do.

Hi Maggie, thanks for the camera tips, I really need one that takes good night photos. And your drawings are gorgeous! So full of life and vitality ... no wonder as you seem to have a wonderful life. Great pics! I've knitted a bit but have never tackled socks ... I'm in awe. Thank you. cheers.
