    Nice... I'm thinking of getting a DSLR to start taking more professional looking pictures. Another thing, you avatars are sick. Especially the one with the guy in face paint.

    Thank you. I have used Nikon for over thirty years, they feel so great in my hands. All of the major brands will give you great results if you get good glass, that's the most important thing. Get a good body but spend more on great lenses.

    Mine is a Nikon D300, I got a great deal from my brother after he shot 20 shots with it and said it was too complicated for him to enjoy using. I talked him into the D90, same mega pixel but much lighter, less expensive and it also shoots HD video. I shot some with it and if I wouldn't have gotten the deal on the D300, that is the camera I would have bought.

    Nice photos. Did you take them manually or use one of the pre-programed modes? What kind of a digital? I have a Nikon D1, a Nikon D50, and a Nikon D300. All are great cameras and do a wonderful job. Digital is the way to go these days. You can get some terrific photos with a digital.

    Thanks all for your kind comments, makes me want to continue shooting.

    I just bought a D300 with the Nikkor 18-200 f/3.5-5.6GIF-ED VR. I shot in manual, raw and processed in Photoshop. I have a Nikon FE, Nikon 8008s, Nikkormat FTN, Olympus E-10 and a Pentax 6x7.
    The FE is 25 years old and has shot thousands of photographs and feels as good as when it was new. The Pentax is a beast but is great to look through the viewfinder....... with Fuji Velvia, it gets surreal results. At a dollar every time you opened the shutter, it's become somewhat cost prohibitive.

    I like digital a lot, mostly for the freedom and for what can be done in Photoshop. After seeing what one of Ansel Adams' prints done straight from the negative looked like compared to what he did with it in the dark room, I am sure he would have gone nuts with Photoshop.
