SUCH good photos here everyone! :woohoo:
I was having trouble deciding where to start, so I am going to concentrate on some of the B&W photos I've taken. I tend to use my cell phone camera most of the time, as I commute daily and carrying a DSLR is not practical.

All your photos are great but that second one is really amazing. I got a little emotional looking at that one.

Wow... so many beautiful images
I don't think mine can really compare
I discovered early on that I'm terrible for taking pictures of people, so most of mine are from hikes. Back in the day, I'd pack my little Fuji camera, and I thought that it got some pretty good pics... then we got the D90. Lugging that along on a hike was a challenge, but I did it a few times. Nowadays I make do with the camera phone... which is about on par with my little ol' Fuji, so I guess I've come full circle. lol

I don't know how many pics I can get in a post, but here's a few of my faves from a hike in Zion Nat'l Park some 10 years back...

I am a Canon fan, but you will find just as many Nikon fans. Go to a store and pick some up and see how they feel in your hands. See if some friends will let you borrow a camera briefly to see how you like it.

I'm a Canon fan, too. I had a T-70 way back. And now just have a Canon Powershot A720 but I'm ready to upgrade. I'm thinking a Canon EOS Rebel. Hopefully someday. :)

I have a Nikon D5000. I chose it because my dad had lenses for them, so I figured why not, free lenses. (those lenses wound up not being compatible in the end.. oops). But I still like it! I recently bought a Tameron telephoto lense, 70mm-300mm and its great for the price.

The most basic entry level DSLR of any brand will take you a very long time to master, will be better in most respects than the top of the line professional DSLR of just a few years ago and be capable of catching an image for the cover of a national magazine.

The big budget I had allotted for my current camera led me to do extensive research on DSLRs. In the end I realized that while it was easy to get caught up in and dazzled by features, software, speeds and specs..... I am not a professional who is really able to make good use of or appreciate any of the top of the line stuff. In fact, much of it would just add to the confusion while learning basics.

All the DSLRs at any given price point will be very similar in performance, they just have different menus, buttons and operational concepts.

I settled on an entry level Nikon and a few basic lenses. After a few years of use I have become proficient at using my camera and it has never held me back in any way. By the time I am ready for something better, prices will have dropped and capabilities will have soared even further.
