Shame we have lost this thread with the collapse of Rockorum, it had some really good photo's in it. Any chance of rescuing it?

Anyways, saw this on Hot DealsUK, and just done it and put an order in, only costs £6.49, so be rude not to. Will report back when its delivered and let you know what the quality is like.

I was amazed with the pictures in the following link, I won't say anything but they're not what they look on first glance:

my sister is a pro photographer (alongside sound/lighting techy for mcr academy w/obligatory annual trips to ed fest...she scares me! now becoming a hairdresser too) so my interest in photography is limited to the 'voyeur' side of things generally.
have picked up an ixus 950is the other day and the pictures have such a clarity, i'm inspired to actually carry it around with me. be good to see a few more posts on this area of the forum (if only to give me inspiration and what to look for!)

scarret - had a good look through your photostream, the pictures are fantastic - don't look like they need any post-processing to me.

Thanks John :D Have had to be a bit more selective recently about what I put up as upload speeds in India are not always fantastic! Will stick something on here next time I get some up.

Got a photobook for valentines for my gf from photobox. the quality was fantastic! And even made my average pics look good! Sadly, my only have a sony DSC-T10. so the small lens really kills my shots. Only got it because i take party pics and needed a cheap underwater casing.

3M have started selling glossy photo postit note paper. They are 5.99 for 25 pics. but there was an error last weekend and i ordered 250 for 8.00 with the code STAFF. Can't wait to start decorating the new flat with them!

Took this when it snowed this year, probably the last good photo I took. Need to get out some more with camera.

Some really nice pics there Scarret, like the first sunset one. I never get bored of seeing that crazy dog of yours John!

I'm heading back out to the Philippines in august, how important is a tripod when capturing sunsets? I've found in the past that using the flash took any colour out of the scene and turning the flash off made it blurry.

In more general terms, how useful do you find a tripod if at all?

I seem to remember you picked up a TZ3 the same as me Matt? I've taken a fair few sunset pictures over the last month, some with and some without the tripod. In general the tripod ones have been better but most of the time I have just used the small gorillapod I picked up or a handy wall/ledge/shoulder to lean the camera on.

The sunset mode on the TZ3 is great by the way, adds so much colour to the frame. If you take one with it on and another without it then the difference is remarkable.

These are with the TZ3? You put me to shame!
what settings do you get the best results with / use the most?
