    Wedding is a bitch, not because of the setting but because of the bitching firestorm after the event from the bride.

    I wonder why you chose D3200 instead of D5100, given that they are more or less at the same price, but its too late now.

    Yes, get the 55-200 lens if you want to be a stalker. Its not terribly expensive, but a bit fragile.

    Once you get a DSLR (whichever make and whenever it is made) you are pretty much set for life, the rest is skill polishing. Hell, most good stuff are taken by people who uses the most basic tools because you can learn everything very fast and move on to get composition right instead of worrying about settings. I still cannot get the most out of my compact so I am not going to get a DSLR yet.

    I agree, taking pictures is all about that moment. My phone already have pretty decent quailty and with me all the time. Just need to come across those times you think it will make an excellent picture and snap away. It is always better to take something and find out it didn't work out than missing a chance because you forgot your camera.

    Although I do agree for wildlife shooting as such, you will pretty much need to invest heavily.

    Not wild enough! was thinking about long range exotic bird shooting and such. That shot is more "macro shooting" than "wildlife shooting" imo. Being said so, nothing stopping you using kit lens to do anything. Heck even point and shoot and some camera phones are good enough for small prints, with a little PS work they look rather decent.

    On a side note, as a insect hater that bug is creeping me out. :p

    Let me know what you think, I think Oklahoma has some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. Most taken with an A100 and a couple with an A65, all with minolta lens'!

    One can only hope the idiots in my country stop burning and polluting the sky. In my country its impossible to get nice shots like that only in certain areas that are untouched , the pollution level here is crazy u cant really see sh1t . Do you know some people here are to cheap to get a grass cutter but they use fire to cut their grass rofl..Nice pics anyway i envy that nice sunset :C

    IMO that was too much sky showing, the sky near the top left corner kinda ruined the overall feel, still rather pretty.
