The learning curve is steep

I added the second kit lens to my new camera this afternoon and set the camera onto Aperture Priority. I was expecting a step change in quality but did not get it. I think this was my favourite shot.

The lens is a zoom covering 40 mm to 150 mm. I tried it at both ends of its range whilst standing in the same spot

I also need to find out how to set the ISO because at the moment I cannot find any way of stopping the camera from making its own mind up on the subject!

Yes, I could get the disk out now, insert it and read it … but I cannot extract the disk from the cupboard whilst the table is up and has my lappie on it. Honestly, at this end of the day it just feels like too much trouble.
