I was trying out a new Nikon digital compact camera, model S9300. I came across this “classic” scene – park bench and shadows. This is a bit of cliché in the photographer’s lexicon, but certainly worthy subject matter for a test shot.
The image quality is excellent I think. The patterns in the brickwork are sharp from front to back. The camera was in auto mode, but evidently the aperture was small enough to ensure good depth of field. Unfortunately, this camera has no manual settings, so one has to rely on automation. Alas, that is a major drawback and I will not be keeping this camera long.
