Well I made the huge purchase, now I just have to figure out how to use it. (Rebel XT) Here is a shot I took of my boy "Harley" a few weeks back. Comments welcome, I look forward to hearing what others think.

Not sure if anyone knows how hard it is to shoot a 9 week old puppy by yourself but here she is! :)

Welcome to the forum. These images are a nice start. Interesting framing process in that first shot.

Thank you! I havent had any sort of formal training and I havent got past the "camera doing it all for me buttons" but I thought I would share and see what you all thought. Thank you again. The frames, I was just playing :)

I guess no one likes the dogs, so here are a couple of flower shots I took, playing with my new cam :)

I love the dogs pics.... Very nice... I just dont care for the framing effect. The first flower is over-saturated IMO and the second one is soft...

Stick with the dogs ;)

You did a great job on the dog pics, good exposure and focus. I am not a fan of the framing. The flowers need a bit of work (if I had a nickel for every shot I took that needs work...)

I like the dog pics..you got good poses. If it were me I'd crop in on the first since it is a sharp picture and show more detail. Beautiful dog, by the way.

Thank you EVERYONE for your comments! I have the original's of the photos, the frames were just for "fun".... the flowers, well I cant even make excuses for those...<smile>
I'll get better with time Im sure, I'm looking into some sort of classes for this "eye" everyone says I have. Im hoping this site might be a good start for me as well.

Thank you again for allowing me to share these. ANy ideas for equiptment that I might buy? Books?

I have the Rebel XT with EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 III and the one that came with it EFS 18-55. Any suggestions?

Deb
