That's a damned sharp lens, nice flowers - what are they?

Nice pics guys.

GoneTomorrow: I'm with you! Bugs are great . I don't like spiders very much though! I'd probably stay a good 20 feet away from your eight-legged pets if I met them in person . I like the shot you took of the empty shell of a cicada, very nice.

ecoyd1: I personally find the first of the three roses shots to be the most pleasing, in terms of composition. They're all really sharp and crisp, with really nice colours, but I'd say the first is probably my favourite, followed by the third and then the second, in terms of how pleasing I personally find the composition .

I went to a local shop to have a look at the D300. I wasn't able to take any shots with it, but I held it in my hands and got a feel for it. It's really solid and feels pretty tough and well built. It's really heavy compared to my superzoom though! It must be three times the weight, without a lens! It felt really comfortable in the hand though. I'll try a different shop sometime next week if possible and see if I can actually take a few shots, as well as try the K20D out.

Here's a shot I took of a swan the other day.



Handheld ISO100, F8.

Keep up the good work guys!

Good lord Highly, will you hurry up and buy the D300? I've never seen someone so meticulous about a purchase! You're making me impatient.

Here are some senic views from this past year:


Saturation and Contrast increased in Lightroom for this one; too fake looking? I like the artistic look the colors give it.





These Three are all of the same road in case you didn't notice. Which is best?







The Mission in Carmel, CA, USA:


The last road shot is fantastic, a textbook rule of thirds landscape. Phenomenal!

Hmm, ok. I was leaning towards the first two. I think the first one with the painted lines detracts from what is actually going on but then again it may emphasize the significance of the road.

The rule of thirds is just a guide. Many times photographs look better without the rule of thirds. You never have to abide by it; its just good to keep it in mind.

I have to say that this is my favourite. I like the colours and the perspective is really cool. I tried to get something like this a while ago, but I think you really nailed it .

Hah! I'd buy one tomorrow if I could afford to! I still like the K20D and think it's very good value, but the D300 is simply better. I have to wait for for a cash injection though, which I wont be getting for at least another 6 whole weeks and even then I might have to save a bit. It'll probably end up being a £2000 (around $4000 USD) purchase with at least one lens and some extras and unfortunately I can't get that much cash together very quickly . I wish I could !

I'll post up one or two more pics I've taken recently, later. I've got to go the local animal shelter now for a "meet 'n greet" between my elkhound and a cat we're trying to home .
