Shooting Light and Compact with PowerShot GX cameras

Sometimes it's nice just to go out with a minimalist kit instead of large, bulky and heavy DSLRs and R-series MILCs.  I was meeting some photography mates down town in Auckland one evening, for something that was really more social that serious photography.  We decided to take a walk along the foreshore of Auckland's Inner Harbour and I was pleasantly reminded that these diminutive little cameras can still deliver:

A Handsome Transom:  This rather classic yacht sits amongst the very modern vessels, with a certain grace, enhanced by the classic cruiser stern.   Canon PS G5X, 37mm, f/8, 1/200sec. ISO-125IMG_8183 VLR copy.jpg

Three of a Kind: These three classic racing yachts have similar bows, but individual bowsprits.  I was attracted by the pattern they formed and the water reflections.   I was also struck by the similar deep turquoise colours rendered by the oxidizing brass fittings, the tape around the painter of the closest vessel, and a painted detail on the far one.

Very nice and complements on the composition of the photos. I'm getting to where I try to make a mental picture of a particular scene. I has a Nikon P&S that I carry sometimes on fishing trips rather than carry all the stuff you mention. FWIW, my grandkids are learning to shoot archery. I plan on setting it up on a tripod to record them to look at form, release, etc.
