Who says that point and shoots cannot take good images? Its all about the composition really, and a bit of tweaking in CS4, levels some sharpening

It did not play so good, even tho i tried!

And here is for the cold nigh:

Quite a shame that the glas was dirty, tried to fix it in PP but it was pretty much impossible and a re shoot was not a option, the whine was done :)

Indeed, some of my best photos have been taken with my point-and-shoots!

I love the first photo. You've really captured the gritty, dirty feeling of the subject. It looks like a surprisingly wide angle lens for a compact. Which camera did you use?

I have tried several times to take photos of glasses, and it never turns out well. Even when you think they're clean, the photos show you they're definitely not...

That was taken with my COOLPIX S52c, which is of fixed focal length.

Yeah but its worth mentioning, that if i was to pixel peep, you will get a lot of noise.

Yeah the problem with that glass, was that i came up with the idea whilst i was drinking the whine. And i though i was going to be able to remove the dirty in PP but it did not work out the way i planned!

Thanks for stopping by!

It's always easier/better time management to get it right in-camera rather than needing to PP.

And there's a bulk of evidence that there's nothing wrong with P&S cameras - it's the photographer behind it that matters more.
