    Congratulations, Jason!!:biggrin: I'll be looking forward to more examples and some outside photos, as well. I'd give the manual a good read through and take a look at this thread in the Photography Techniques forum called Learning How to Expose Properly: the basics. This is a really handy thread with excellent information and how to advice. Once you start down that road, I think you'll find that between you and that NEX, you'll really start cooking!:friends:

    Though I'm thinking it's only a matter of time before we're outnumbered by the X100 crowd:smile:

    I like the second one best, but I think it'd work better in vertical orientation. In general, shots seem to work best in whatever orientation is the least degrees of angle from normal.

    Welcome to the NEX fold Jason like you I bought the 18-55mm lens withe camera; hopefully I would like to add a true macro lens which I understand may not be too long in being released!
    I have no other lenses from any other cam: so will stick with the Nex range. I haven't used the auto; mainly using the AV; just experiment with your new camera and enjoy.
