Maureen's Afternoon Out 3/7

A couple of weeks ago Maureen was taken to see the Spring flowers at Felley Priory, just off Junction 27 of the M1, and all this weeks postings are pictures taken by her during the visit.  As I said on Monday Maureen gave my new little Fufi Finepix JX320 compact its first proper tryout and I am quite pleased with the results.  It seems to handle the exposure quite well and is quite simple to use.  The drawback is no viewfinder and Maureen said at times it was difficult to see anything on the screen in the very bright sunshine.

Well...Maureen picked out a fine subject for "Lone Tree" entrant, Brian.
Brian Walbey: She did indeed ray, I'm quite jealous.
A great tree! Lovely composition!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Elizabeth.

A very good little camera expertly handled Brian
Brian Walbey: She's doing better than me with this camera at the moment Chad.

Maureen has clearly learned from the pro, Brian! Please let her know this is fabulous.
Brian Walbey: I will make sure she reads all the comments Ginnie.

Fine looking tree Maureen ;o)
Brian Walbey: She wasn't even aware of the "lone tree" thing when she took this, quite good isn't it.
The lovely English countryside - so pretty.
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Mary, and this is only 1/2 a mile from a major motorway.
We get to see what captures Maureen's eye.
Brian Walbey: We do indeed Chad, I wonder if I still capture her eye smile
I love lonely trees and this one is superb!
Brian Walbey: I told her that Richard, a good tree isn't it.

That's the trouble with those small camera's Brian but you can know get a sun shield that fits on the back for most camera's now I have one for live view on mine.

Still a great capture.
Brian Walbey: I have read abut these shades Peter but this camera is a bit small for that I suspect.

a wonderful lonely tree -and I like to see the first blossoms and the swinging curve of the undulating hills.
Brian Walbey: I really liked this one when I saw it.

A very pleasant scene Brian.
Brian Walbey: A nice little area of Nottinghamshire John.
Nice picture Maureen. These little compacts are not good in very bright sunlight, i just point and hope for the best grin
Brian Walbey: She said much the same Bill, that she pointed and hoped for the best at times. Actually she is doing a better job with it than me at the moment.
Great capture Maureen, lovely tones in this!
Brian Walbey: I really liked this one when I downloaded it and saw it for the first time, just a small crop of something on the left and here it is.

Proof that it is not the camera but the person behind it that makes the photograph smile
Brian Walbey: I think that goes for almost any picture Anyes.
Love that stately tree - yeah, lcd screens can be murder in sunlight - I believe viewfinders are available as add-ons for some makes.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a fine tree she found Tom. I'm pretty sure viewfinders aren't available for these, it is mainly these new style system cameras like the Olympus Pen series I think.
Cracking shot. You've got competition there! Cheers, Dave.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Dave. I was really pleased with her pictures, she managed to take a few general shots of the place in addition to her usual ones of the people she was with as well for a change.

The definition is very good, Maureen
Brian Walbey: Not a bad little camera is it.

WOW.... Brian. This is absolute fabulous. Maureen does a great job.
I always say, it is NOT the camera, it is the EYE that does the trick.
When can we expect Maureen's blog????
Brian Walbey: Yes I thought she done well with these shots Astrid, I did a bit of cropping here and there but that is about all. As for a Blog she says she's far too busy doing this, that and the other about the house, do you think she's trying to tell me something!
Another fine spring scene. I use a simple little Fuji and just try to shade the screen with a spare hand. Can be irritating, though, 'specially as I m usually trying to hold the dog as well!
Brian Walbey: Definitely difficult with a dog Graeme, I shall have to try the hand idea though.
