Nice shot, SB. The raised sides really give it perspective & a focal point. Hopefully this will re-spawn the interest we had there for a few days!

Pretty lucky result huh?! No photoshop or anything. Wouldve loved to have seen the result if that'd been on a really decent camera!

You kidding? That's about as perfect a photo as it gets.

sometimes composition is everything and I think you nailed that.

//as a side note I hope you make it in time for future comps.

Sweeeet!

8s exposure? Nice! I love those low-light long exposures.

You should post a thread about this in the Photography Forum. :thumbsup:

That looks like a heart with the moon being at the top of the top corner of the heart... looks really unrealistic and awesome...

I wish that I was somewhere where I could get a good picture...

I think you'd be surprised at how good a photo you can get from everything you see on a daily basis. What is not so interesting to you might be the most bizarre and interesting thing to me.

Night time offers great opportunities for photographs, infact when taking photographs i actually prefer to go out at night and look for something.

Well, once I collect enough money to buy a decent camera to take a decently good and presentable photo, I will try it.

But I need to take classes... I'm not that good with taking photo's even though I'm really interested in it.

Believe it or not, there is not alot you really need to know in order to take a good photo. It's possible to take a semi decent photograph if you have the camera on the most basic settings. I knew what things did, but i found i learned more just by experimenting and not being afraid to try out new features.

I actually deeply regret selling my DSLR camera the other month because i miss the features it had. Infact, other than my film camera i don't have any other camera so i miss not being able to take photographs when i can.

You can find some decent older DSLR cameras for sale at a reasonable price on Ebay if you searched. My last camera was the Canon EOS 40D, before that i had a Canon EOS 350D, i can honestly see myself going for a 350 or 400D now because they have become more affordable for what i can afford now. Doubt i'd be able to find one brand new though which is a shame.

I'm still kicking with a 300D and I've taken shots just as good with my kit lens as I have the thousand-dollar lenses I've rented. Bogey don't let anyone tell you more expensive means better product!
