HI,
I'm also from SE Mass ( mansfield). I am wondering if you can tell me exactly what camera you are using, the photos are gorgeous.
I esp. loved the AKL in B&W and the ? sepia tone shot inside the castle.
Some photos are missing, but were some from Borderland State Park you are talking about?
Thanks

DH's "beer can" arrived safely yesterday, despite the box looking like somebody played rugby with it. He only had a few minutes to play with it yesterday afternoon, but I think he is pleased.

He has a 50mm en route. Should be here today or tomorrow.

I'm just getting our pictures posted from our trip last week. The full gallery is here which include pictures from my wife's Kodak. The pictures from the Sony start here.

There were several pictures I was pleased with. I found I need a ton more practice on fireworks. I only attempted to shoot one show (Wishes one night), but only got 2 or 3 out of a 100 or so that I liked. Part of the problem was the wind, which carried some of the fireworks rather quickly. I haven't had much time to do any post processing, but here are a few examples that I liked:

Taken with my 50mm 1.4 (touched up with Noise Ninja):


Handheld with one of my Tamron Lenses:


Tripod, I think I used the beecan with this one:


The kids marching down Main Street:


Beercan:

There are a ton more. Enjoy.

You must tell me your secrets taking your night shots. I cannot keep the noise out of mine. I have the DT 18-70 F3.5-5.6 Lens (came with the camera) and a SLA75300 75-300mm F4.5-5.6 Lens.
What settings where you using when you took your pictures at WDW?

I did it, I did it!!!

OK, I finally ordered my camera! The 300. I ordered from Circuit City. I know many of you don't like that store but they had the camera at a $50 discount and AAA has a 8% discount. so the camera only cost me $597.99 and then I bought the 55-200 "beer can" since that was on sale also and I got the AAA discount so it was 202.39. They charged me tax, so really I ended up with a 2% discount (MD sales tax it 6%).
I paid 4.99 for 3 day shipping, tax was 48.02, final price $853.39. It is suppose to ship tomorrow!

I think this is the third post I've written you on in the past day or so...I'm starting to feel like a stalker!

I've been going back and forth over the past day regarding ordering from CC. Like you said, others hate them...but I've always had good experiences with returns at my local store. I saw the 10% coupon code for the A300k...but how did you go about the AAA discount?

Thanks!

LOL. I found it on the aaa website under discounts, shopping. I'll try to post the link www.AAA.com/circuitcity Hope that works.

And I sent several PM's to you today so I think the stalking works both ways,

You have made my decision!

My husband and I have been doing some research on which DSLR to purchase. We have gone through the Canon vs. Nikon debate with friends of ours...but in the back of my mind I really wanted a Sony but they don't seem to be a DSLR "winner". Yesterday's Best Buy add has the Sony Alpha A200 on sale (and a lens on sale too)...so I started reading on CNET, Circuitcity.com, and Bestbuy.com... then I decided to consult the disboards (when in doubt you all tend to help with the TRUTH)...I am going out during my lunch break to make the purchase!! I can't wait to use it. I have 36 days until my trip so I plan on taking the sony online class to help me become a beginnning expert before my trip!!!!!!!!

Thanks for making the decision so easy! Plus, ALL of your shots are beautiful!

I did it!!!

Bought my Alpha yesterday and I am soooo excited! I have to wait a few days for the larger lens to come in but I am slowly learning how to use it!

My next question is...I am looking for a good waist pack to use (just can't do the back pack because it is too hot).

Here is what I am thinking about:
-Kata w-10, 12, 14, or 94
-mountainsmith aurora IT


Thanks for all of your helpful insights!!!

Question Lens?

I was hoping that steery1 might see this and be able to share what lens(s) these pictures were taken with? I realize they were awhile ago.... I'm looking at buying my first DSLR and was looking at the Sony line. The lens is probably out of my range...but thought I'd ask!
