As usual, we went to Golf Park Holzhaeusern last Sunday for a dessert and for a short walk. We watched the golfers playing golf with envy at the same time took some pictures from a far. Then I noticed the maple tree as it was the only tree among the many trees having a few buds, flowers, and leaves unlike the other trees.
The photos of the flowers, buds, and leaves were not manipulated just like the other photos that I have been posting in this site. I just reduced the size from 2.4MB-2.8MB down to 36KB-64KB and from 3264×2448 to 480×360 which I normally do for lower bandwidth usage and faster downloading of the page. I especially made the background (actually the golf course) blurred to emphasize the subject which were the flowers, the buds, and the young leaves.
I just used a point and shoot digital camera, a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100, the camera that I have been using since February 2007. Before that, I was also just using a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-P1. And before that, I was just using a cheap Kodak film camera. I actually love my Kodak camera only that it eventually gave up. Once in a while, I use my Sony Ericcson W810i cellphone’s camera.
I love the photos of the flowers, buds, and young leaves of the maple tree above. I just feel like patronizing myself for taking great pictures. So, who says that we could not take great photos using point and shoot digital camera with limited features like Sony Cyber-shot which is not even a semi-dSLR?
