    Much better. I would still "straighten up" those buildings (perspective correction). After all, all buildings must be upright for the anniversary of 9/11!

    I see what you mean, that's a quick fix I can do later when I get back home. Got wedding flowers to do today. Will post a shot or so later as well.

    Well, now all the buildings are straight, but to do that, the neat building in the top right gets cropped out (I liked the light it had), but it's still a nice picture.

    Here's some I took earlier today while doing some wedding flowers:

    I'm not sure I like the last building missing but I see what you mean about them being straight.

    For noobies who want to get a feel for the effect different settings like aperture priority, ISO level, etc have on the final pic, try the camera simulator. Please report back if you give it a shot.

    Who can recommend a good lens cap for Canon lenses - ones that have a lanyard. I keep misplacing the original Canon lens caps and it's getting on my nerves. Thanks.

    Man, that was a rollercoaster of emotions. You go from cute to gross to kinda creepy to beautiful.

    I've gotta break the dSLR outta the bag and go take some shots. It's been too long.

    As the heir to the family's coin colleciton, I think these are very interesting. I especially like the depth of field on this shot, as it is just barely larger than the coin.

    Really like this shot! Very good composition! All are great though... Just curious though I've heard that Yellowstone is very difficult to photograph.. did you have any troubles with exposure or colors? :toast:

    Thank you I'm glad you like them.

    The one you really like was outside the park. It's part of the beartooth pass in Wyoming/Montana. It was really tricky because it was 8:00 in the evening so light was getting low and I was shooting into the sun. Somehow it turned out really well though.

    I didn't have any trouble with my day at Yellowstone though. I was helped by a absolutely perfect day. The weather was beautiful with very few clouds and low humidity. I used a circular polarizer which I think really helped capture the colors.
