    A few pics from a couple of weeks back . .

    I took advantage of Tesco Canon 400D offer that was on and I must say it's a brilliant camera!

    It was my first day out with the camera using the lends kit.

    Just a bit of background info; I have absolutely no previous photography skills. That said I've only used a digital camera a handful of times in my life :oops:

    I'd appreciate any C&C as I can only learn from my mistakes

    I've only just got round to post-processing my pics and most of these were trial and error and I managed to fill the capacity of my cards. Here are a few selected ones that I found to be pretty nice (EXIF Embedded):

    It really captured the sky well. :thumbsup:

    Playing on railway lines is bad though. :giggle:

    Wow very nice pics, I see you've found a hidden talent.

    The second from the bottom picture is brilliant!, Really like that one!

    I've not got many camera skills either though, A can press a button and put them on the PC, Thats about it!

    I'd like to get a proper SLR though, They always produce great pics!

    As much as I want to agree, that is far from the truth. You can put a good photographer behind a basic camera and he/she will produce stunning results. Morale of the story? It's not the camera, it's the photographer! :thumbsup:

    But if you've got a the budget for it, it's always a great step to take as you're not limited to basic functions. When I processed these pictures they turned out to be 'amazing' in my terms and its only encouraged me to go out and some more in the future!

    For landscape yes, I can take quite good pics with a point and shoot, Motorsport on the other hand!, nope!

    I'd really like an SLR for the TT races, Rallys and all the other events!

    Some great pictures there though! (I posted before i'd seen the second lot!), I'd say you have a hidden talent also!

    watch out for trains sneaking up behind you when you snapping... but some very well taken pictures :-D can we have some airliners now then please :-D

    Some excellent photos :thumbsup:

    Think you should have over exposed the pic of the cooling towers though where they are just a silhouette, would have made it a lot better.

    The rocks photos tend to be better from directly above as well (although I did it with pebbles)...

    I'm aiming to get either a D40 or D80 so I can up the quality of images taken (using a Fuji S7000 at the moment).

    one word...IMPRESSIVE
