    In the oddest places.
    Ever since getting my small P&S, I'm shooting everything I would normally not shoot.

    While waiting in the car for my wife.

    1st is of the dangly thing on the rear view mirror.

    Second is the airvent
    (softened and burned)

    You have to tell us some of your dirty little secrets.

    What settings did you use on the A75?

    How much PS work was involved?

    I have an A70 and I don't get images like that!!!!

    Nice work BTW.

    Hey Max, on My A75 I use manual mode and set the shutter, and fstop. I check my histogram (you need to know this with digital, soooo many people are lost without it) and make sure I have a good whitebalance.

    Ps work like all my images is under 2 min. I will make the usual adjustments to contrast, and do some burning, then if I choose I will use a creative action like my contrasoft or softar.

    It all comes down to good capture.

    I really should figure out the histogram and White Balance on my A70. That should make all the difference. I usually shoot in either Auto or in one of the preprogramed modes. Whenever I try to use any of the manual settings, for example, AV set to 2.?? for DOF, I never get the results I was hoping for.

    One last thing. Do you use the LCD or view finder?

    Are you using longer focal lengths with the wide aperture when trying to get a narrow DOF?

    Yup, I like to shoot at 2.8 whenever possible.

    I have to say I'm a little surprised about all the questions about the camera - put anything in Hodgy's hands and it will look like his work. The camera he used here isn't anything special, top of the line or out of the ordinary. It's a combination of his eye for composition, his technical skill at capture, as well as post processing skills. Above all else, aesthetics.

    I think this post is a good example of what can be accomplished without a bag full of top of the line gear. Not that you always have to work one way or another, but sometimes it's inspiring not to think about gear (and the resulting back ache from carrying it) and just go shoot. Nice work!

    Bingo, hence the reason why I went out and bought one!

    Exactly. You can accomplish excellent results if you know what you're doing. I was just picking Hodgy's brain to try and learn something........
