Cool, would love to see and shoot inside the buildings like that. Not bad shots, the lower one could use some straitening which would make a good difference!

My original idea was to give an idea of straight out of the camera .I've had another go with the shots taken in our local park ,this one slopes downhill.I've used a different way of resizing.

I've had many digital cameras in the past 8-10 years or so, both P&S and DSLRs and various brands (Pentax, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Olympus and Kodak). Some of my all time favs were Sony (H1, R1, A300). Today I standardized on m4/3 for its compact size (body and lenses) w/o compromising IQ (to a certain extent, of course). To me, having the ability to adjust exposure, DoF, WB, etc., before taking the shot is key. I seldom have to retake a shot due to poor camera settings because LV allows me to see exactly what I'm getting after a press the shutter.

I must admit if I was starting from scratch the M 4/3rds is very tempting but I would want a walk about lens.I would hate to go back to swapping lenses every 5 mins. The problem is there doesn't seem to be a good one out there, the 14-140mm doesn't do well in the reviews, most say it's a movie lens not too good for stills.
If someone came up with say a 14-210mm that got decent reviews that would be very tempting for me. But and it's a big but the M 4/3rds is very expensive in the UK.

Wow FITCIP, nice HDR shots, really like the 2nd ATV shot that really shows the HDR and also the dock . I don't know how to do HDR in editing so the in camera might be fun to work with! Good job, I'm looking forward to getting the D5100.

Thanks, i don't use the in camera HDR as its not as good as using the bracket feature and doing it yourself. But you won't regret buying the 5100. Its a great little camera. I look forward to seeing your work

All the best
John

I thought that is what you where showing me was the in camera HDR, I'm not buying it now, I don't know how to do HDR. Wish i could find someone to show me how, my editing skills are basic and limited. I think I read that the 5100 comes with a pretty good edit program on the CD?
I still gotta find away to tell Santa, kinda dreading that! :/ We have an expensive trip to Seattle at the end of the month to see our son come home from his deployment in Afghanistan.

FITCIP,
What lens/lenses was it you used for these shots??
I gave my 18-55 along with my D5000 to my grandson who is at uni. I never used it myself having the 18-200 but he is getting some cracking results with it, really sharp.
