Thanks, I think that I am just slightly frustrated at my abilities. I want to be better. I cant get a good picture of my fish to save my life. I guess pratice makes perfect. I will stop with my whinning and just fill up my XD card again, and thanks.

excellent pics lreilly. Fish pics do take more practice than flower pics

Make sure you have your macro function on. The easiest way to get pics is with the flash imo. Just put your shutter speed to about 1/160s, macro function on, an F-stop of 4-4.5, and shoot down at an angle so the flash bounces on the gravel and not back into the camera. Pics without a flash require alot more light on top of the tank. I take my pics at around 1/30s at an ISO of 100.

Thank you Reefrunner and Verse so much. That really is helpful. I am going to go try out your suggestions right now. I have been wanting someone who could just tell me how to do it, now I am going to try and follow your advice. Thanks so much, I will either post some fish pictures or more questions in the very near future.

On our way to the grocery store this morning, I pulled along the side of the road and took pics of some of the flowers growing wild in the ditches. It was kinda windy but I think they came out pretty good note to self...do not attempt to crawl in the ditches in sandels...my feet itch!!

After leaving the ditches, we came to a field of wild flowers, these suckers litter the sides of the roads in the spring time around here, one of these days I'm gonna remember to take a bucket and a shovels and transplant them to the front yard.

Well I finally got myself together and dug up some of my old pics off of CD. The weather round these parts isn't really "summer" just yet so You'll have to settle for some summer pics from 2001 :o)
