Peggy - excellent photographs
Jarrett - I hope you are using some kind of filter for those direct sunlight shots - People have reported, after having their camera pointed in direct sunlight to have damaged their CCD's. Now, I have not heard of this happening to a S6000fd yet, but it is always better to use caution.
Maybe input from more experienced users or some photographers opinions would be great on this topic.
Hopefully Cozmo or Levicki will read this thread and respond - because I have a feeling they are credible in this field.
