Both, I think. Sky and dog seem to be smiling, don't they?

Lovely, Did you use fill-in flash for that or is it natural light?

Lovely sky and Tim but it does have an end of the world feel about it...

Joker, yes I did use flash for this one. I took shots with and without flash, but with flash was definitely better. I used spot metering to expose for the sky and let the flash illuminate Tim. Also had the bonus of putting some light in his eye. Although my Exilim camera is very small it's got a lot of nice features like spot metering, shutter and aperture priority, full manual exposure. It also has a 'sundown' mode with a red filter which I used for this shot to enhance the sky. The clouds were red anyway but the filter just helped it along a bit.

Twiglet, I can just imagine Tim with a sign round his neck 'The end of the world is nigh' :)

Great use of a compact!
Getting max-use out of all the features, good to see.

Thanks. It would be good to have a dSLR obviously, but I like my little Casio Exilim, it allows for creativity and you're not stuck with auto settings like most compacts. And of course it slips into my pocket easily when I'm walking the dog.
