Just a reminder - of which I was reminded today!
Cameras don't take pictures, people do. I shot one of these pictures today with my G10, the other a year or so ago with my 1Ds Mark III.
Both look pretty good to me.
Message: Compose carefully, see the light, watch the background, get the best in-camera exposure.
P.S. My next book (no kidding): Confessions of a Compact Camera shooter.
