Thanks! I had relied on the automatic settings for photometry, because I didn’t know what that was, but many of these pictures, including that one, wouldn’t have turned out as well if I hadn’t finally figured out last week that “average” is a much better setting than the default “spot.” Aside from that, the clear focus on a telephoto shot attests to the steadiness of my grip, the result of decades of clean living. Or just blind luck.
