I had a quick play with the 'creative auto' mode on my camera today. It's funny how much you can learn in a short time if the motivation is there. I haven't used the 'CA' mode before because I didn't know what it was - and whenever it came to mind I was lacking either the time or the motivation to learn. Three short pages of the manual and 5 minutes later...
It's nice being able to play around with the exposure knowing that the camera will take care of the rest. While this isn't necessarily a great photo technically, there's something about it that appeals to me. Maybe it's the late afternoon sun (my favourite time of the day), maybe it's just the girl.
