Wind Chimes (Portrait)

So I’m planning a trip to Portugal and Spain later this year. After much deliberation, I decided to purchase a “small” digital camera and leave my 15 pounds of camera gear at home. I wanted something that would fit in my pocket without sacrificing quality. So for the sake of documentation, here is my very first image with a few layers of Topaz plugins. And this was a JPG. I have not yet figured out how to put the thing into RAW mode. Luckily I have plenty of time before wheels up. Stay tuned…


very nice result - if I may ask, what type of small camera did you get?

Like the texture and lighting.

Nice. I bought a compact camera for travel last year, a Lumix TZ100. Completely blown away by the quality this tiny camera produced.


Woops, sorry I didn’t mention the camera, which is a Canon PowerShot G7 X Mark II. I reviewed a number of small cameras and in the end decided on Canon because I’m a long time Canon owner. I also wanted to stay under $1000. As I mentioned before - stay tuned!
