    You are not alone - I've kicked myself so many times for forgetting to change a setting. My preference is for aperture priority shooting. I want to keep the camera shooting somewhere around f5 if possible. Certainly I change this when I want to increase (or more likely decrease) the dof. My main reason is to get as much sharpness as possible out of the image. Every lens has its 'sweet spot' where the resolution is the best - it is usually around the mid point of the available apertures. I run a set of tests with every new camera to check this. My 'test bed' is usually a telephoto shot of power lines with the huge metal towers. When I examine each image (a set of different apertures) by blowing them up on the screen it is very obvious where the lens is sharpest. I do this on a tripod to eliminate any camera shake. Once you see the difference you I guarantee you will want to choose your aperture as a priority :-)

    Thanks Mepo, not sure why I chose ISO 400. I may have just come out of a shady spot and forgot to reset!! I have a bad habit of doing that.... I appreciate your pointer, suggestion well taken.

    Looking at your camera settings again - I hope you don't mind. I see an iso of 400 and suggest that you should consider dropping that way down in bright sunlight since you just don't need it. You will get a better result with a lower iso.

    Great caption! I zoomed in to get a better look at the bunny, and found I liked it even more that way.
