It looks quite like the area where I live in the lower south of Western Australia, as I am almost surrounded by vineyards.

Sounds lovely. I still hope to get there some day. I spent a month in NZ in 1990 but didn't make it across the water. I'd like to do a visit of 6 months to a year because Australia, like Canada, needs a lot of time to see it properly. :)

I've lived here since 1971 and I still haven't seen an awful lot. I guess I would have seen more if I had just come for a holiday :-) (I came from England originally.)

Isn't that usually the truth of it. I lived in England for 3 years in the 70's and seldom got out of Yorkshire. Mind you Yorkshire is about as good as it gets in my book except for Cumbria. :)

Nice composition and the colours are fantastic. If you're using the kit lense you'll never get a truely sharp, crisp shot. Lokks like great hiking country!

Thanks, I take it a kit lens is the standard one that comes with the camera? The shot was actually taken on an island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River.[link] The hills in the background have some ski resorts and probably good hiking but of the wilderness variety and not my thing. Miles of bush with soso trails, bugs, snakes, bears, carrying canoes and supplies, etc etc. I know it sounds like paradise to a lot of people but I grew up in country like that and I can now live quite nicely without it.:)

Yes the lense supplied with the canera is the kit lense and to buy the 18-55mm zoom costs in the UK about £90.00 - £110.00. A good quality Sigma or Tamron lense in that focal range costs around £300.00 which seems a lot but the resulting images are just light years away from those achieved by the kit lense. The equivelant Canon lense would cost £500.00 - £600.00 or more and isn't any better optically.

Thanks for the info Tony. I knew that there were expensive lenses out there but I thought I had got a good one when I bought the camera. In any case it will have to do me for now, it's not like I am a professional or even aspire to be. Something to keep in mind for the future though. :)

Thanks again.

No problem. You have a good eye for the shot and that's the important part.:)

Nice one! The composition is good. It looks to me like the foreground could be a little more crisp than it is, but regardless good work. ^^

Thanks. Yeh, I think focusing on the middle trees softened the foreground. I've been reading up and as far as I can see the settings should have been okay so I'm not really sure why.
