The Robins are out and about under the cover of darkness this week. I had high hopes of getting in some learning sessions on this one, but time just plain ran out. We were out this evening looking at some property we're considering, and I snapped a few shots of the night sky before heading for home. The little light in the sky is a firefly.
One thing I did learn from all the dark areas is that I apparently have a couple of hot spots on my sensor, stray pixels that are stuck on red. I've read that this is an issue with the G9, but I didn't think it affected mine. I used the Photoshop program I got for my birthday to heal them. It's the only thing I know how to do with it so far, but it's a dandy trick.
I'm becoming more and more discouraged with my attempts at photography, and more and more disenchanted with this camera. Maybe I should have sprung for an SLR. Or maybe I'm just a really slow learner.
At any rate, there are lots of new entries to see from the other Round Robins participants. Stop by and check 'em out, OK?
