    You're discovering something about photography that is important--enjoyable, great, and appealing pictures do not have to be made with an expensive camera and perfect technique (and it's hard to go wrong with those spectacular yellow flowers.)

    Here's a lucky bug shot.

    Well I luuuuurve photography, and am thinking about getting a Canon Digital Rebel just because of this. And I like how a lot of my photos turn out, although I can't tell you what looks "pro" and what doesn't. I don't even know what to look for, and what to avoid when taking a photo.

    Its really hard to say, isn't it? (Canon A60..... 2 MP)

    Well I took it in the forest, it's an extreme close up of some moss or something growing on a rock. The yellow thing is a dried up tree needle of some kind (pine or douglas fur maybe?)

    I'm currently living in Banff so when I go out taking photos I tried my damndest not to take tourist type pics of the mountains.

    haha yup, but then again how often do you go up and examine moss from 2" away? And yes, the other hikers did give me wierd looks.

    Panos can be a lot of work and that one turned out good.

    Not to derail the thread or anything, but I have to plug the software I used, as it's truely fantastic! :D
    It's called HuginOSX. A port of an open source windows & linux photo stitcher.

    Takes 5 minutes to get your head around, but I've done about 5 panorama shots now and they've all been stunning!

    Anyway, not to de-rail, here's some more pics from my cheap camera!

    photoshop, hella-wide lens, or crop? just curious :eek:

    im part of the $200 camera club until i can upgrade...ive discovered how useful photoshop can be for crappy shots. example: my camera (hp ps735) has ****** white balance and contrast, but i just blow it out in photoshop and it looks really cool.

    here's another of my favorites (also photoshopped a lot)

    Sca1pel,

    excellent b&w! I'd swear it was Tri-X with a red filter due to the absolute black and white and all shades of gray in between, properly developed and printed. :D

    Great pics, guys. Unfortunately, I could've taken better pics with my pinhole camera that cost me 2 dollars!
