    Yeah, I never edit my pictures. If I want augmented reality or non-reality, I'll play a video game :)

    Some more junk from me and my SX20IS...

    Some Zoomed detail of an alarm siren in a roof about 3 floors above ground level... I seem to like taking pictures of old broken down things... Any amateur shrinks in the audience want to comment on that?

    lol, few were out of focus, over exposed, blurry.

    And oh the wedding was in India and no is there is no official traning to use a camera, can't blame them too, can't afford.

    But the fun part was he was looking at my camera, 'hmm u got a cheap camera ....' I didn't get a chance to punch his face when he sent us the CD with the photos:D Ofcourse they did a good job with the album and DVD video with special effects etc.


    when I try to upload a pic, I get this message

    'Error: Could not move uploaded file: '

    EEEgh... *shivver* - those two with the dog? (painting) there is something so very hideously, disgustingly, creepy, about those faces, so often found in older paintings...

    To me, those have a very perverted, creepy vibe about them - but those two with the dog - eegh.. that's 10X worse than the spiders...

    I don't mean at all to offend - it's just what I get from it.

    Thanks for ruining the picture for me. It cannot be unseen.

    Would it be out of place for me to post a few links to some good photography sites?

    I don't mind. As long as we're not straight up advertising some service or throwing around illegal stuff or pornography, it should be good. Besides, the clubhouse forum doesn't get patrolled quite as much as the rest of TPU. I kinda think of it as a slightly more structured General Nonsense :)

    I used DPReview.com to help me decide which camera and lens to buy. Very thorough reviews, yet also very informative to people who don't know much about them.

    Nice to have those sites mentioned. I sometimes refer to dpreview for more info. But my first stop is http://www.steves-digicams.com/

    They have loads of sample pictures to download and analyze before I can make a decision. I always prefer people pictures, thats where every camera struggle.

    Heh - No you don't need to remove anything :) - It's just a matter of personal taste regarding the actual painting itself, but the photos are fine & the flowers are very nice :)

    I think my camera is stronger at macro shots.

    Pretty place. I personally wish we still had more places that looked like that in Southern California. 90% of them have been built on.

    I did get that Olympus E330 after all.
    It's my first DSLR and I have lots to learn, I never went to any photography lessons either.

    I just downloaded the manual, but decided it's better to order a printed copy since 200 pages on pdf isn't exactly comfortable.

    Just a small quick noob question please - what is this dial for? I'm suspecting it's broken since it doesn't appear to do anything.

    Looks like its for manual focusing to me, or zoom. Since you said that it is not doing anything, i suspect its focusing dail. Try turning it all the way to one side and look into the viewfinder.

    Guess you're right. I got in macro mode and turning it makes the image blurrier or sharper.
