Here are a couple pics from my chicago/milwaukee trip over this last 4th of July weekend. I had a good time and got a couple good pics with my brand new Sony W1 that I was very impressed with. Remember I am a rookie. Most pics were taken while in the Manual mode. I must say this camera is a bit big to get in and out of the pocket quickly, but performed well above the Canon SD110 that my friend had on the trip. Let me know what you guys think. Milwaukee Riverwalk- Taken w/out tripod just set camera down on rail. http://www.pbase.com/image/31024256 Lightening Shots- Taken from car while driving and raining. http://www.pbase.com/image/31024161 (There are 3 in there if you look closely.) http://www.pbase.com/image/31024194 Sears Tower @ Night- Taken from rooftop deck where I stayed. http://www.pbase.com/image/31024051 Michigan Ave in Milwaukee- Taken from hotel window. http://www.pbase.com/image/31024082 You can check the Exif and see if I am doing things correctly or maybe steer me in the correct direction to obtaining even better pics. Thanks.
