Looks as if you are learning those lessons Joe, not sure about the mushroom but I like how much can be seen in round the bend

the mushroom/fungi was awkward to do, lying on the ground. it was about 3" tall and 4-5 wide should have used the Gorillapod but was too lazy to get it out of the car Very Happy . i knew the canal would be interesting as it has a slight bend in it at this point to start with. need to find some buildings next

Fisheye can be a lot of fun - especially if you are prepared to try things you wouldn't with a more normal lens. Looking at some of the more off the wall stuff posted by a Mike Thorn on the Bath - Roman City and all that Flickr site a variable angle LCD monitor would be very useful if trying this approach!

tell me about it Steve, that mushroom was pig to get Very Happy . when i got rid of my Fuji 9500 and bought K7 i could not believe all cameras did not have a movable screen, what a downer that was, still i persevered. the 10-17 would have been the better choice as it is AF and i could nave just sat it in front and pressed the button without looking but wanted to play with the new toy Very Happy

My first digi camera was a Fuji 9600 when I bought it in late 2005. Great little camera - the moveable screen was used on a few occasions only. Cost of memory was exorbitant by current standards and I never had enough to really get the best from it on our trips away in the 2006-07 period when it was my front line body. Got stolen a few weeks back from the glove pocket of my car (wasn't locked) Sad Embarassed .

i read somewhere that the 9600 spawned one of their forensic cameras , basically the same thing with the blocking filter removed. may not be true of course but would not surprise me as the 9500/9600 were highly regarded in the day. i used my old one last year ,as my daughter has it, when i put mine in for a sensor clean. i know i should do it but if it goes wrong on somebody else it is their problem not mine Very Happy
