FZ50 images of Isle of Wight, love the camera but....

First group from recent trip to Isle of Wight (and Exmouth via Salisbury), where red squirrels thrive, there being no greys allowed on the island.

All of these are FZ50 images. I really like the FZ50's controls and optics but I was lucky to get the squirrel shots at IS100. An aspect of te htrip was to see if the FZ50 and LX5 would be enough to cover a forthcoming trip to Las Vegas and the Canyons. In short, the FZ50's wide end at 35mm and restriction to ISO100 would be too restrictive. I do not want to cart the dSLR and lenses. So, ordered an FZ150 this morning, which will travel with the LX5 +LWA52 and TZ7 in reserve.

Filesize reduced with PSE otherwise OOC. The lighting, I think, is magical.

Cropped and very slight PP/sharpening.

The Needles and Alum Bay

A ferry like the one we used and a couple of scenes during the crossing

The Hotel grounds, the squirrel was captured here too. The last image is a three shot AEB, then PP'd with Photomatix essential
