D40 Auto vs. Macro/Auto vs. Program settings
Here's some samples for you Joann. I did not alter or crop these photos. They were taken in full sun, and seem a bit overexposed imo, so I'll need to adjust that a bit next time.
Automatic Setting (point & shoot)
Automatic Macro Setting
Program Setting with low aperture setting
I actually don't see much difference between either automatic setting, the program setting is probably the setting you would want to use to get up-close photos with a blurred background. I'm only on day 2 with a DSLR, and use none of the automatic settings already. I could never achieve the results of the third photo with my point & shoot camera. The D40 is a really easy-to-use camera as long as you read the manual first! LOL

I like the last one best. The bloom stands out more and the background is darker and more diffuse.
I agree the last one is best. It almost seems to float.
Tks for sharing your knowledge. I inherited a D60 recently and will probably try a few shots too! Will go out and experiment on pretty flowers bcos my balcony is facing South and does not get any sun. >"<
Thankyou so much for doing that for me. I'm sold..the 3rd picture is a standout from the others.
Congrats on the new camera . . . you are certainly a great student, and even better teacher! (Now what kind of flower tree is that?)
