That looks like a Harrier ready for take off. Good work.

Nice catch on this guy Vito. I think I've seen this pose on some hood ornaments
on some cars I've seen at antique car shows. Nice exposure on that white
without getting blown out on the highlights.
As for the kit lens, for a cheapie lens I think it is pretty good. I've gotten
some pretty good close up shots of insects and wild flowers with that lens.

thanks for looking



i've been pleased with the kit lens...at least for anything smaller than 4 feet...lol

for landscapes...it's not particularly amazing...but i've found it very sharp for close up shots...

thanks for your comments everyone!

nice shot Vito, I think the Kit lens from the rebel gets some pretty bad comments that are unjust, I too have found it fairly sharp, it takes a nice portrait shot. I will be replacing it with something better eventually but Ive decided to keep it as any lens as low as 17 or 18 -55 costs a heap:!:Im looking at getting a 28-105 or 28-135 lens but thats no way as wide an angle on a DSLR is it.

When you gettin a zoom lens for that camera of yours:?

i have a couple hundred dollars of saving, and i'll get one...
hopefully before this summer...

i'm buying a 17-40mm F/4L first :-D
the one i'm getting is only 200 bucks, so it won't take long to save for that one
