I like your photos very much.

One thing I notice about them is how comfortable you are with the 4:3 aspect ratio. The 40D would show 3:2 in the finder, and you'd have to crop after the fact. Many people find this hard, annoying, distracting or outright impossible. There is the very real possibility that using a Canon DSLR would cripple your photography.

3:2 was never popular for landscape before digital came along. At least some of the Nikon DSLRs have or had masks in the frame to make them shoot 5:4.

Everyone is different. There is a whole school of landscape photographers that shoot 3:1 (the "617" format). That's the way they see.

I think your neighbour is right - don't try to fix what isn't broken.

mostly likely your use of the word imagine instead of image... dang! I just re-read the post..I guess my reading and comprehension skills are worse than your spelling..

Too funny! I reread my own thread four times trying to figure out what he was referring to. I blame my problems on my age (aging faster than a road kill in August).
