More yucca blossoms, different camera
I had both my Canon and my Nikon with me last weekend when I stopped to take photos of the yucca blossom. Yesterday's photos were taken with the Canon (which I'm STILL learning how to use...). These were taken with my Nikon (D40x). Which do you like better? It seems to me that the Nikon ones are more crisp and clear, but I'm biased toward the Nikon. I've always loved that camera. (It's the one that went flying, THUMP! on the floor of the cabin up at Mammoth last fall and when I fell SPLAT on my face after coming into the cabin with snow on my boots and sliding on the kitchen floor. The viewfinder on it was smashed). Hubby sent it out for repairs and I really haven't used it much lately, but I did take it with me this weekend. Anyway, let me know which set of photos you like better...The Nikon is MUCH lighter than the Canon, but it's an older model and it is more difficult to change the settings on it. The Canon is a newer model, but I'm still learning how to use its settings and frankly, I was disappointed with the photos I took last weekend. The sky was washed out on every single one of the photos I took and I was taking some at 250/second...I noticed that one these, the sky isn't washed out. Tomorrow I'll do some more comparisons. I prefer the Nikon for sunrise and sunset photos because it seems to capture the colors better than the Canon...any thoughts, or ideas? Which do you use?
