Bad camera or bad Photographer?

That was a great chance to make great pictures. Beautiful landscape, and people doing a strange sport.

I never use full auto. The setting I use the most is aperature priority. Full auto sees only the light being produced in the scene, not the scene itself, and can result in poorly exposed images. With aperature priority and exposure adjustment combined, we can create what our eye is seeing, or something even better. :)

The plastic bag was not in front of the glass. Don´t now what was wrong i never take photos in auto mode. I have this camera only for 2 months.
Do you like the Fuji 9600, don´t you have problems with noise?

I've got the same camera... I haven't taken a single picture on Auto (already have about 8000 photos with it), but could it be also because of the plastic you had around?
