    My reaction:
    For a nature walk, we met at a manmade prairie about 15 minutes from my house at 7am. Our walk leader was a nice woman by the name of Carol Freeman ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/inbeautyiwalk/ ). Now, I showed up, and there were a couple people milling around, she really kinda just said "ok, here's a bookmark with one of my photos, the bathrooms are here, the paths are there, go walk, and when you get hungry, go eat". No real organization to speak of. There were 50 registrants, but probably only half that showed up (7am, remember :hs: ). I guess I kindof expected some direction from her. After all, nature shots are her "thing", it would've been nice to get a few secrets of some good technique. Obviously not camera instruction (though from the sound of it, some in the group could've used it), just "when you're trying to take a picture of this, open aperture and fast shutter are better" or "keep an eye on what you're metering when you try to do this".

    So, I wandered around, talked to a few people, and left. Didn't bother eating because it didn't seem like anybody was going to the restaurant anyway.

    Anyway, I'm glad I went... nothing that gets you out shooting can be bad, right?

    My top shots of the morning (EXIF intact):

    #4 looks cool, but it's too centered.

    Nice! I love the Rebel series I have a Rebel EOS film and still love shooting with that. My fav is def # 4 as for it being to centered its really not to me I think the majority of it is on the right side stunning pic!
