Default Photography thread

I am an armature photography hobbyist and I'm sure there are others here also. I'm starting a thread for random photos, tips, tricks and so on.

I use a Nikon D300 as my main camera and my trusty old Nikon D40. The D300 pretty much has a Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens on it all the time and the D40 has a Tamron 70-300mm VC lens on it most of the time. I have various lenses and other gear.

Here is my first sample.

Cool.
Amazing with the right shot what a phone camera can do.

And this I took with my new panasonic lumix. I like taking pictures but I don't have any fancy cameras with fancy lenses.

Both of those shots looks much better without being compressed. Even with image hosting they lose to much detail.

I see you're using photobucket. I stopped using them a long time ago because the quality is terrible. Flickr is so much better IMHO.

I bought a cannon just after I bought my vision its a ok camera for me and I'm always amazed how good my photos do come out.
When I work on the bike the camera is always close by just for that one photo that might help the next guy work on his bike. I just love the way i can stick the card into the computer and now i have a permit record of what I did.
