    Thanks! They were not much bigger than the head of a pin.

    Thanks! What type of lens do you use and do you crop the photo at all?

    Sometime when you take photos of the birds flying could you please share your camera settings? I really love your photos!

    Staying on the ship in Alaska Ports

    That's exactly what I was thinking!
  6. What kind of underwater camera did you use? Great pictures!

    Picture-A-Week 2018 - Week 50

    Thanks for the information. I've had a Nikon d3400 since February. I just have the kit lenses and I don't feel like I get enough zoom even using the 70-300mm lens. Usually I can't get close enough to the birds so even zooming they look small and then I crop in the camera. Plus in most cases I don't really like the quality once I crop it. I still don't know enough about photography to do much more than to use the automatic setting. I also found that I don't like changing lenses so I think I need to go back to P&S. So I'm looking for a camera with great zoom, be able to take pictures of birds in flight and great macro (I like to take pictures of really small things-like a snowflake the size of a pin head). I like the sound of the Nikon Coolpix P1000 (for the extreme zoom) but it is very big, doesn't get the greatest reviews and I'm not sure if it does everything else I want. The Coolpix A900 has good zoom too. I notice that they are not mentioned much here so I'm guessing all you great photographers don't think much of them. The Sony is a bit more expensive than I would like.

    I always love your pictures. Is there a point and shoot camera that will give me great zoom and quality pictures likes yours and kenevenpar's?

    Was the Vista TA your last one? Have you not liked Carnivals' itineraries?

    I really hope we can do it. I loved Stavanger when we did the British Isles cruise! Did you do the Horizon TA?

    I thought for sure we'd see you on this. We did book the 9 day to Norway too. Not sure if we can really do it too, but it's best to book just in case.

    I was going to send you an e-mail to see what TA you were doing. We had the Radiance booked, then cancelled it and booked the Legend.
  15. Thanks. We've booked excursions several times using the card and have never seen a credit.
