This is an intentionally overexposed photo of a spray of Faerie old-fashioned roses, taken with my new Canon G9. I placed the rose spray on a bright, white background, and lit the photo using a tungsten spotlight with an attached difuser.
The Canon is a little hard to use precisely, but certainly creates great files shooting in RAW mode, all 12.1 beautiful megapixels of each capture. Very impressive, considering the wonderful small size and low weight of the camera.
[Canon G9 at approximately 150mm in 35mm equivalent terms, 1/4 of a second and f/8 at ISO 100, tripod mounted.]
