Thanks benny. I'm thinking of using either that or another pic in the photo comp if I don't manage to come up with a good new pic in the meantime.

Nice shot Hubu, I love taking bug shots too but yeah a nice macro lens would be sweet. I'm using a 55 - 250mm Canon lens for close ups atm. Actually use that lens for nearly everything outdoors.

Hozay. you should use it, its a wonderful picture...btw i have recently got an Eos1100d with the standard kit lens, the 55-250 is probably my next purchase. Are you happy with it?

I have the EOS 1000D (aka the Rebel :) ) and I'm extremely happy with it .
I bought it with the 18 - 55 lens and bought the 55 - 250 later. Both are EF S lenses with the built in stabilizers which is terrific for the 250 and cuts out the need to use
a tripod all the time. In fact I've hardly used the tripod since I bought it, not even for flower and bug close ups. I took a heap of surfing shots yesterday on full zoom, no tripod and only one out of 20 or so shots showed any shake. No way could I do that with my old non-digital Canon AE1 with it's 75 - 200mm lens.
Like I said I use the 55 - 250 for nearly everything outdoors and it's terrific but always carry both lenses around with me.
Next on the wish list is something up around the 400mm mark as I'm becoming addicted to both bird and surf photography. I'd like a macro too but the 250's doing the job at the moment so no rush.

The one thing I am finding a bit limiting with my 1000D is the 10m megapixels in that it does not necessarily allow for the crops I would truly like to achieve. I have a program called photozoom which assists but that is the primary reason I am contemplating an upgrade to a 550D.

Yeah I've noticed a dramatic drop in pic quality on big crops so I have to keep my crops to a minimum. I'm definitely more aware of that when composing shots now.
The 550 is a good camera I've heard. My mate has the 60D with 17.9 megapixels but while the picture quality is obviously better I couldn't really justify the price for an amateur like me.
I'm pretty happy with the 1000D for now.

Cheers me dears I wouldn't of even known what kind of lens i had until i saw that you use 55-200mm. Looked and mine is the lens that came with the camera, a Nikon D40, and it's 18 - 55mm. So it looks like the next grade up is the way forward I'll have to save some money first and keep my eyes out for a deal. Maybe a treat for Christmas if it's possible. Great Photo as well Hozay and it's perfect for the OTPC

Photozoom does definitely help (luckily I managed to get an old copy for free when a friend upgraded otherwise I may as well have just bought as new camera then).



Just a quick snap of my parents dog from when I was there earlier. I just noticed my attempt to cover up a bit of frayed carpet was not fully successful

A couple of shots I took today. First one is of Mick Fanning who's currently ranked number one in the ASP Surfing World Championship ( and local hero here).
Shots taken at Burleigh Heads, Queensland. goin' off as they say.





and a recent shot I really like,

Rummaging through my photo folder of my trip back home a couple of months ago and found a few i like. Apologies for the amount of pics , but i would like any suggestions/advice/criticism to help me get the most out of future shots would be great

For technical advice my DSLR is a Nikon D40

This reminded me of one of my favourite artists, Edward Hopper



Desk top back ground




I missed this post somehow, or your question anyway. I'm no expert but I reckon that first one would look great with a wide angle shot ( 24mm maybe and get close and low ) of just the building and a nice sky. If you could re-take it without the gravel heap and the fence I think it would be a lot better as the building is interesting on it's own.
The rest of the shots are fine, especially the last two of the bushwalker and the swan. I love the water on glass shot too. I've been trying to take a similar shot with coloured lights in the background - a car windscreen that is, looking out. Hasn't worked properly for me yet.

Thanks Good advice there. If i get the chance to go back home i'll re-take the the building ( it is great looking ) or at least remember the next time i have a similar subject. Cheers again

While it's not the most beautiful photo i've taken... Have you ever tried to take a photo of a springer spaniel?!!?



Or in instagram... making very expensive cameras looking like old crappy cameras....

Some great shots gingerdaniel. That yacht looks so much like a toy the woman on it seems out of place. Love the Swiss village (?) and swan shots too.
My sister had a cockerspaniel, it was the maddest dog I've ever met. It was so uncontrollable she gave it to my cousins who live on a farm so it could have enough room to run riot to it's heart's content.

A couple of bird shots I took recently,

This is an Azure Kingfisher. I've done quite a drastic crop to zoom up on the bird and it's lowered the pic quality quite a bit.



A Sacred Kingfisher. I'm constantly amazed by the huge variety of bird species in my area.



and a Harlequin Bug in a ridiculously blue winter sky.

I've discovered that there's a Barn Owl hunting over the field behind my garden, I've been trying to get a decent shot of him so far managed to get this shot, but bugger me is it hard - the amount of post processing to bring it up to this was ridiculous.
