Cala Bona
This was just a short walk from where we were staying in Cala Bona Majorca, and perhaps looking a bit more tropical than it actually is.
But a very nice part of the World none the less, quiet this time of year, but then again we all love crowds of GUs don't we?

Looks idyllic to me and all the better for being out of season. I like the little quay; a good place to relax and enjoy some quality time.

A nice place to sit & chill with blue skies & sunshine. I like the steps that lead up to the palm trees & hills which you can see in the distance which does make the shot look tropical.

A super place in Majorca. Compositionally I am not over keen on central horizons unless it is to balance reflections. Perhaps in this case it might be better on the lower third. have a try and see RoT suits this type of land/seascape John.
1/800sec @ f3.6 is rather strange unless your camera does not permit override. f8 is generally more suitable for this type of picture.

What a lovely place to sit and soak up the sun with a glass of something cool. A smashing shot to remind you of your holiday Jeffrey and I hope all the days were as pleasant.

Now there's a gorgeous place to sit and while away the time simply listening to the lap of the waves and enjoying the sunshine.
Love the colours, well done Jeffrey.

Yes Frank this camera has three initial modes “auto” with just a few manual overrides.

Then “smart” with things like, best photo, panorama, macro, rich tone, and continuous shot (four per second in a max burst of twenty), in fact nineteen to choose from, also with few manual overrides here.

Then “expert” with much more manual intervention possible, iso, shutter speed, ev, and so on, a bit like a SLR, but f stop only from f2.8 to f8 range. Most adjustments are by touch screen or spoken instructions, say “smile” and it takes a photo. But there is no manual focus, it is always auto, but the focus area can be moved.

As I have said on previous occasions I will take several photos if time permits with different settings and choose the least worse when I get back to the computer. So this photo was one of the “smart” modes with most settings chosen by the camera.

Just to say I just love this camera it runs Android 4.1.2, so I can take photos, listen to music, watch videos/films, use it’s GPS, play games, link via Bluetooth to a TV or a computer, upload files to the cloud, dropbox, facebook etc. Surf the internet, email, alarm clock, diary, language converter (spoken or written), currency converter, calculator. Well you get the idea, but it won’t make a phone call, I think you would get some odd looks walking around holding a camera to your ear though. For that matter it won’t make a cup of tea either, but a great little toy, my favourite purchase for a long time.
