Sunset on Songo Pond, Bethel Maine
For this image of a sunset on Songo Pond, I made sure to set the TZ-3 so the flash was forced off. The silhouette of the tree helps create a sense of scale and place. I also gave the shot more weight to the bottom, creating a sense of the distance of the mountains. Wait until the right moment when the sky might seem just a bit too dark, which can give you richer colors, then make sure to steady the camera on a tripod, railing or anything handy since the shutter may be up to 1/2 second. Since the TZ-3 has built in stabilization, it′s also possible to be very still and hand hold the camera, as I did in this photo.
