    Whilst I may have bagged the 18-200 for not being able to take that jetty shot (at least before editing my post). Here's a shot of my daughters iron horse from last weekend taken with the 18-200.

    Herc, just looking at your shot and my daughter just leant over my shoulder and said "Thats Pretty".
    She doesn't ever say much about mine

    Looks great philwojo, I wouldn't have done anything different.
    If you wanted, you could use a reflector or some fill flash to reduce the nose shadow. But it looks great as is. Great use of DOF, you kept the sky (!) and good sharpness on the subject.

    Thanks Toriaj, not a lot of time for setup on this. Had 15 minutes off the tour bus and had to do some quick hiking and spotting to find this one and then snap a few pictures there and also around the area.

    I need to learn to shoot in Manual like you guys, I currently shoot in "P" mode so at least I can turn on/off settings in the cam. Once in a while I will flip to "S" or "A" and dial those in, but haven't really got the fell for the shutter speeds yet and didn't do anything with Aperature on this trip.

    I really like it Phil. Nicely exposed for a start - you've not blown her white top.

    Only improvement would be to think, right I'm going on a rip with the missus and will put her in some landscape photos today, right you're not allowed to wear white, here wear this red top instead. Red clothes and green landscapes are made for each other.

    I wouldn't shoot in manual like the purists. Trust me shoot in A and leave it on F8 for most shots.

    Bryan Petersons "Understanding exposure" explains why thats works well often.

    With your shot above you have someone very close to the cam and scenery very far away. If you keep around F8 the background will be fairly blurry like you've got and not distract you from the scenery. Your other choice is to get the background less blurry in which case you'd reduce your apperture to reduce the blur, eg F11 a little less blur, F16 or in the extreme F22 if you have enough light and the background would still be blurry but much less so.

    What I've saying is by using "A" you get creative control and yet the cam still handles the exposure. Using "M" you'd have to worry about your exposure as well and IMHO why would you bother.
