Was in Chicago on business last week and got trapped there by the storm. Couldn't resist the temptation to venture out into the snowfall with the new 60d. Was definitely impressed with its ability to withstand the snow/moisture (even though I know it's not officially "sealed").

I like the first one... perhaps pushing the grain effect a bit too much in the second though. I like the bleakness of the 3rd :-)

I really like #2 & 3 - terrific images. I am thinking of a 60D, I like the idea of the rotateable viewing screen.

Thank you! The rotating screen is fantastic.

I used it right when I walked back into my hotel and got out of the snow to snap the goofy shot below (yep, that's 2" of snow caked in the spikes). :lol:

Thanks for the CC; I'll watch the grain effect. Just got the 60d and those in-camera effects have been fun to play with. :)
