This is one of the images I used to accompany my main blog prior to creating this one, and when I initially included it I was reasonably pleased with it.
On reflection thought, I don’t think it’s all that great. Part of the reason I initially liked it is that I’ve spent the last couple of years using a Fujifilm FinePix 40i – a reasonably good point-and-shoot digital camera. Having made the transition to a Canon G5 though, I suppose that I’m still at the stage where the ability to control something as simple as the shutter speed is a bit of a novelty – hence this picture.
I think the main problem with this image is camera shake. I had assumed this wouldn’t be too much of a problem as there wasn’t a static background, but it is quite noticeable (and distracting) and I should have used a tripod. Having said which, if you look at the first comment that accompanies the entry I made in my main blog regarding this image, you’ll see that a tripod might not have been politically expedient ;-)
Oh well, it’s reasonably colourful.
