Here's a night shot of the main strip in Lefkada, and this place Porto Katsiki was nice for a swim. and these last two were at a monestery and my dad and wife are going through the gate up to the mountain where they have statues of the ladies that took there own life diving off the cliff so they wouldn't be captured and tortured, and at the very top is my dad and son.

The Scorpios Island looks so beautiful indeed..About Lefkada I especially found the statues interesting and would like to see how evening sun justifies them The night shot,the third one,however, seems like a bit affected by your pressing the shutter release button or it might be that, at F/4, even an ISO high as 1600 could not allow you enough exposure time for a handheld shot Except for it, your images are all neat and well saturated. Your Rebel XT does it job well. I wonder if you have already bought any of the lens you mentioned or it is your kit lens on.
Btw, congrats for your team's second place in the FIBA World Championship,leaving behind basketball giants such as Argentina and US )

Thanks for the reply bahadir, those pictures were taken with my new 17-85 and your right on that night shot i forgot to turn on IS, but i really like the lens. On the statues where i zoomed in was with my EF 100-300 all pictures were right out of camera,but i do think soon i will get the 70-300. Yeah the Greek national basketball team did really good thanks, but i do think they could ofplayedbetter with spain
