Went for a walk today and found this interesting door knocker on someone's door. Thought it made a good shot. I really like all the blue colour. Of course, the first few shots I took (some back stairs of a building) were done with a screwed up white balance. I really need to come up with a mental checklist of settings. There really aren't that many but I always seem to forget one.

The other thing I noticed is that with the lens I have it's really hard to get a narrow depth of field. It's a P&S so I guess I shouldn't expect much from it but the only way to get a narrow DOF is to shoot in macro mode which means I have to be close to the object. Can't wait for my DSLR!

So, my checklist should consist of:
1) White Balance
2) ISO
3) Aperture
4) Shutter Speed

There are other settings but those are the big 4 which I find I change the most and mess up the most.
