I'm not a photographer, but I've been a long time browser of this thread. Hell, this was taken from a Sony TX1 point and shoot.
I'm sure then you can imagine my surprise when I went to look at the shot I had just taken and this turned up.
It really goes to show that the camera is only half the battle when taking a good shot. I simply got lucky with the lighting and angle and such, but it sure made the difference
I dont see what you see, and by your comment you make it sound like photography is a walk in the park, personally I beg to differ but each to their own, Is it the worst shot in this thread, perhaps not, but I don't think its as good as you think it might be, especially if your referring to the sun reflecting off the handle.
things that I think would make this shot as good as you think it is
- smaller DOF
- better time of day
- fill light
- no distracting objects
the camera might not make the picture, but there's only so much you can get out of a camera that doesn't have full manual control, and this picture illustrates that in my opinion, of course all the features in the world mean squat if you dont know what they do.
