Anyway, on the way to the camera shop this morning to take the item back, I walked along the canal and took this shot with my old digital (Olympus Camedia C-310). To get this photo, I had to stand right on the edge of the water and shoot directly downwards, not only getting a shot of my feet, but the opposite building reflected in the mirror-clear water. You can see the flash too. No adjustments were made to this image. This is exactly how it looked, and I actually felt vertigo, standing there.
Having collected the replacement camera, I asked a perfect stranger whether I could take a photo of his dog. Got this nice shot.
I bought this camera mainly for the macro (close-up) setting. This is a shot of water droplets on the purple windscreen of my neighbour's motorbike.
