Thank you very much. I have been watching this board since before I became a member.Don't be afraid to post some photos right away, some of the guys with skills will be happy to suggest what you could have done differently. Constructive criticism (and a little sarcasm at times) is freely offered. I'm still very much learning and this place has helped me improve my results.
I have enjoyed the repartee between the Canon and Nikon owners.
I became a Canon owner also because I have a very old Canon AE-1 which is nothing compared to my new DSLR.
