Re: G15 - Blown highlights

I like your crop and I agree with the straightening. Just for hoots, I put them side my side, shown below. I like the right edge of the building and the corner of the roof included in the shot as mine shows and the space of wall at right doesn't bother me, the basket of flowers anchors it well enough. I do like the "squared-up" crop but still see little benefit to the addition of the white "haze" highlights in the upper left, specially the one in the corner which I find distracting.

 

Just my $.02.

I actually like your version of the aspect ratio better, since it gets rid of the rest of the hazy sky. I preserved the OP's 4:3, but wished after I had posted it that I had trimmed it to 3:2, which I guess is what you did. I still like my left-right positioning better, though I might not trim it quite as close to the flower pot if I were doing it over. Let's face it: there's no time sink like photo editing.

Re: G15 - Blown highlights

As mentioned by other users, try and get away from the 'AUTO' setting and set yourself free!!

Set the selector to P and adjust to your hearts content. Make sure to shoot in RAW.

Checkout www.seezmo.com and you will find some great tips for the G15 there. I've owned a lot of cameras in my time and my current 'flagship' is a Nikon D300 but I can honestly say that the Canon Powershot G15 is my favorite piece of gear....small enough to go anywhere and some great results to boot.
