Minolta was acquired by Sony, so the SLR technology which Sony has today came from Minolta.

Well, to me it looks like someone walking out of your heart, thus explaining the red "pugmarks". I am a diehard romantic

Whoa! I second that anytime, anywhere! Plus there are times when autofocus can become a big nuisance. Manual will never betray you for sure..especially in the digital age when instant review for granted. Simple exsample is getting the eyeof a subject in focus, i find that wheni do thiis in auto I messup more than I do the same in Manual.

Shot in Manual focus. And M mode is all i use, I tried A but I am not comfortable with letting the camera do the thinking for me.

I'd prefer the Windows XP 'Bliss' wallpaper kind of a look for this photograph. The blue and the green.

I kinda like the black and white one, since we see a lot of such blissful shots(I myself have clicked way too many of them!) . I kinda like to go for what is less seen, less common, so it stands out
