Despite more cr*p on my sensor than I ever remember, it seemed to appear even without changing lenses, I did manage to get one or two shots that I like. As I might have said before, I find it difficult not to point my camera towards a setting sun.

All very nice, I love sunsets. Time for the air blower? You can't tell from these pictures.

Hate it when the trash shows up on my sensor...Always seems to do it when something really cool is available for shooting. No1. one and 2 I like a lot.

Thanks folk.

I do find the crop facility rather useful! However, while it's fine for posting on the net it doesn't help if I want to print the photo. Must investigate what software options are open to me.

My new ambition is to earn enough (in reality wait to win the lottery; I'm too old to rob a bank) so that I can have 2 bodies, 1 with a short range zoom and the other with a long range zoom. I've only had the camera since earlier this year and I'm already bored with the dirty CCD problem.

Two camera bodies only means that you change a few less times. I'll go for a walk with a long lens on one camera body and a wide-angle lens on the other, only to find myself taking pictures of wildflowers half the time with a macro. Go figure...

Keith, Those are really nice shots and more so because they are not the typical sunset pix. Nice creativity! As far as lenses go, you could go to the 18-250, which would take care of most shots, but then you loose a lot of quality in some of the more demandng situations. Good luck in whatever you decide!
