Sati....I hate to say it but those were the first pictures I took with the camera.
I hope to improve things as I get a bit more experience with this little digital marvel.
Allivymar....being as I bought the camera Sunday evening and took those pictures about 20 minutes after I got it home...I didn't do anything fancy. The camera is a Fuji S3000 3.2Mpixel device. I used auto settings and auto flash with the macro and zoom features. I'll play around with some of the manual settings when I have time.
