Joanne's Garden 2004

Here are a few snapshots of the garden in summer.

... and camera comparison

We have several different digital cameras, and I wanted to see if any of them were better for garden photography. So I took each picture with all three cameras. It was a cloudy day, but I tried to get each shot in the same light. The cameras were pretty much set to full auto, so they were left to their own devices for exposure, color balance, etc. All the photos have been reduced to the same screen size, so the differences in resolution won't be so apparent as color rendition.

Click on the name of the camera for each shot to see how it came out.
