Backlit Saturn

No, I didn't shoot this.
I'm always telling people to try shooting stuff backlit and see what happens. It can be more interesting than front lighting. Here's an example from the ever-fascinating site "Astronomy Picture of the Day".

I was getting ready to say, WOW that little fuji really has some range :-)

Have you seen the F200 Fuji is releasing?

Yeah, I'm pretty excited about the F200. The proof will be in the pictures, but the IDEA behind it is brilliant if you ask me. They get to advertise it as a 12MP camera, but the user gets the advantage of the low-noise of a 6MP camera. Brilliant.
