Autumn Colors

I am in the market to upgrade my camera and have been test driving a Nikon Coolpix 5700...Of course I have not taken the time to read the manual so I know there is much more this camera can do...but for not I am pretty happy with the results.

Teacups from my autumn sideboard display with dried flowers and autumn leaves..
Taken using no flash or lighting beside what was streaming thru the backdoor...Macro setting with Spot focus....Post editing was minimal, with auto color correct and cropping only....I am pleased with the quality of the colors.

Squirrel on a post...This was taken from about 30ft away from subject using full matrix focus and manual zoom...Would have liked to tried a few different settings but my subject was spooked by a hollering child....

Nature photography rule number 1:
Do not try to take photos of wildlife with the help of a 3yr old.

Bird on fence with field of sorghum in background...Don't you just love the colors??
This was taken from a distance of 30 to 40 ft away...Center weighted focus and manual zoom.
Post Editing, Auto Color correction and cropping.

Blessings Kelsie
