She managed to touch just about everything she saw, despite the repeated calls not to.

    Thanks David. This was one of four I took in quick succession, paparazzi style. All we keepers, but I liked this one the best.

    Very beautiful portrait!

    Dave, I'm always put off trying something like this because I don't like using the flash for portraits if I can help it and the S3 basically sucks at anything more than 200 ISO and so I just don't have enough light. This is really one of the BIG advantages of a dSLR I guess - this is ISO1600 and I can see no noise.

    It's so nice to see Kara smiling and happy.

    Hi Siret! Thanks for dropping by.

    Hmmm, yes there is that David, although the IS on that thing is pretty good. I let Kara use the S2 at the same meet and she pulled off some 1/10 sec shots that were quite sharp enough. But yes, the f/1.8 lens and the ability to do iso1600 and still be usable (although way more usable in B&W than colour) is definitely a big dSLR advantage.

    Indeed it is Margot - we see far too much of the other Kara every schoolday afternoon/evening.
