    A dull day today, but fresh air was needed.

    Trying to follow Tony's advice, shutter priority 1/250th, exposure -1/3. Max apature at this length is f 5.6 so auto ISO went to 800 due to limited light.

    These are the best two I got, more practice needed - and some brighter weather.

    A good start though, Dave and I like the way the water is rendered very much.

    Very nice shots. I know my fixed-lens cameras thrive in bright sunlight so I'm hoping for brighter weather for you! The highest ISO value I've used was ISO 400 with my Sony, which has a 1 inch sensor.

    We've had bright sunlight for the past few days here on the Central Coast of California with rain expected Friday so I've been clicking away!

    Happy Holidays!

    Thank you folks, low winter sun and a breeze are good for water surfaces.
