It's been an interesting week or so. My trusty old Lumix FZ20 decided it was tired. All of a sudden the lens wouldn't extend to shooting position when I powered it up. (I've since learned this isn't a rare malfunction with cameras.) Anyway, I was scheduled to shoot some photos of art for a website I'm developing for a client. Couldn't afford a new camera, so considered renting one, but all they offered was a D40, for $90 a day. Overkill for images destined for the web. SO I had them try to realign the lens. They got sort of working - about half the time I need to nudge the lens as it powers up.
Anyway, I made it to my client meeting and on the walk back took a couple of shots of sunset over the flood control channel. Here are 2 crops of one shot; not sure which crop/orientation I prefer (both have had a Levels adjustment, but no other processing):
1) the more traditional landscape orientation with a low horizon
2) I like the leading lines in this version
