"Fishing for the Islands" (10-9-16 006v3) is a brand new pic, just fussed a little bit with today (cropping, color correction, and sharpening). I simply do not have the right camera/equipment to take these sorts of long distance shots. Yet I do like how this one turned out. I really hadn't expected that fishing boat to show up as more than a tiny dark splotch (click on pic to see a wee bit of detail,:-D). Of course, the time of day I'm trying these sorts of shots is not optimal. The sun shines almost directly into my lens. I do occasionally try shading it a bit with my hand, but of course then I have to be careful I don't block the shot! And it's hard to tell if I am, given in such bright light the led view screen is all but totally useless for gauging anything. E.g., I have to turn sideways to get my shadow over the view screen just to be able to change my auto settings and even then it's a visual challenge. But, hey, it's all part of the fun of snapping pix, so I'm not really complaining.
