The blurrypicture of the bloom is the result of that idiotic feature of"modern" cameras called "Auto-Focus". Notice how thefar background comes in nice and sharp? In the old days (don't I soundlike a real fogy?) the photographer made a simple adjustment so whatevershe or he wanted to be in focus WAS in focus. Now that little artisticand scientific task is presumed by some computer chip that don't knownuthin. It is especially bad when it comes to close-ups.

So you are an ancient geezer also who speaks in terms of REAL CAMERAS? iused to be a photographer for one of my day jobs, a term I assume isfamiliar to musicians and artists and I was GOOD. gimme a digital cameraand i am a MORON.

i am astounded however at the quality of the amateur photos in thisplace, they out do the photos I saw in books taken by real cameras upuntil about 12 years ago.
