I said I was a novice, not a beginer.....:lol:Thanks for the compliment.

Yes,my cat (Cotton) is my favorite of all the ones I've taken. I have it framed in 8x10. The one of my girlfriends dog (Whiskey) sitting infront of his ball accually got published in a local area "around town" magazine for a doggie day care ad that he goes to. No commission but I was just honored that they wanted one of my photos for their ad. Whiskey is highly thought of at the day care place.

I'll go though my photos and post a few more.

Thanks for the warm welcome Coldshot..... get Neil over here too and we'll be good to go.

Sometimes you see people post what macro lens I need for my camera XYZ...they spend hundred of dollars for one macro lens.:-)

I never ask that question, I use grandma magnifying reading glass she bought at Wal-Mart for $3, I wait for her to go to bed and borrow it and stick to my walkaround lens to take that shot.

Don't tell grandma ok.:-):-):-)

Thats pretty good! I like to buy lenses that have a macro setting. My favorite is my Sigma 70-300 APO DG. That way I dont have to be standing right ontop of my subject, I can stand a comfortable distance away, 6 ft or so. + or -.

Plus, I use it for 75% of the rest of my shooting.

Noooooooooooooooooo. Don't spend too much on a low light fast lens, that's not fun, we should use with what we have and can create pictures like those is much more enjoyable. We don't want to go broke for a hobby.

Those big boys trucks are amazing, you're good with action shots.

I know what your saying about using what we have and not going broke for a hobby.... thats why I'm trying to get the most out of my camera for proper settings and the most out of me learning... and remembering "how did I do that last time"....

Those were the best truck shots out of about 120 that night.

Right let see what we can achive in this thread. Thanks for the invite guys. Coldshot the shot of the parrots, that colour is amazing well done. Scott for a novice you have some talent.

Well here we go. This is one I've been messing with. I have applied a copper filter to this shot.




and this one has the same filter. I've got more to come but I'm still decorating (putting down a new floor BUMMER). I would rather be out with my camera!!!






Neil.......

Neil, good to see you on this new stage. You're a landscape specialist, the color filter adds a special touch to the scene, I love the water reflection, great shot.

Now, all three XTI are here, Scott has fired the opening shot, we follow suit, showtime.
