I really liked how easy it is to get close-ups with my Point & Shoot camera. Then I decided to shoot larger compositions like this tree. The camera picked f3.3, 1/30sec., ISO80. F3.3 gives you a relatively small depth of field even in a wide angle lens. The 1.30sec. is combined with an image stabilisation system and still it is too soft in my opinion. I was astonished that the tree is very well exposed. In the past I have seen the skys perfectly exposed and the tree trunk was just black. The “automatic” picked a great exposure time.
Enjoy and happy photographing!
