Welcome! Yay for new people! I too really love the pastel vintagey type of look (seems to be pretty big right now) though I am terrible at doing it myself LOL. Mine always mess up the colors so bad it doesn't look vintage, just crazy. So maybe you can help with that!
Nice pics from a P & S! What editing software are you using? The last pic looks too magenta to me, but holy crackers, how can a p&s produce such an amazing bokah?

Welcome! Great photos! Which camera do you have? My first digital camera was a Fuji S5100 (non-SLR) but it did a lot of things that an SLR can do, and I still often use it for my macros, because yes they CAN give great bokeh! Smile

I really like your hoverfly photo, although I see some purple fringing on the flower, mostly hidden though since the flower is almost purple too Smile

I love your son's eyes in the first photo. Did you enhance them in pp? did you soften his face?

Wow! The manufacturer of your camera should use your photos for its advertisements! I just love the vivid colors and the beautiful catchlights in Josh's eyes. Can't wait to see more.

WELCOME ABOARD! P&S or dSLR matters not, as you have so perfectly demonstrated here!

Glad to have you and hope we get to see a lot more!

I think these are amazing! Looks at his eyes! And, since I have a little boy the same age-ish, I must say I'm impressed by how nicely he posed for you.

thank you all so much for the warm welcome I have an olympus sp565uz, i guess i could say it is a VERY nice non-dslr/p&s that allows me to use all manual settings... that IMO is what made the biggest difference in my results... it CAN give a great bokeh when used correctly, like Amy mentioned Biggrin

my son is... errrrrr... not the best model LOL hes very hyper and usually the shots I get are what i call lucky shots LOL where i keep shooting until he looks at me, which doesnt always happen, but at this age whatcha gonna do right?? i used to be able to bribe him with fruit snacks but that no longer works, so now i always take foam letters and ask him what letter im holding, he seems to enjoy that for now( B, C, D, T give the best 'smiles' i have learned)

thank you all so much for the compliments, they really mean a lot
