    recently visited some friends from az. just had my camera with me most of the time and just took tons of pics. most were just me shooting away at anything but i guess these are some of the ones i think are interesting. still trying to learn, but its been fun these past couple of weeks. cant wait to get a lens with a better zoom

    1. long exposure with airplane lights in the bg

    i agree, and its been buggin me a bit but its just a kit lens so i figured i just need better glass.

    im thinking that because it is lower res than most other dslrs out there that any cropping i did added to the the softness to em all. meh i dunno :\

    possibly a focusing issue?

    i do not think its a focus thing. i think your body is fine, you should worry about lens resolution more than body. you can put that lens on a more expensive camea and i bet no improvement

    First, I have a house there... second, its something completely different than I'm used to. Living in Texas all my life, a change of scenery was great. Of course, being able to gamble w/ out having to drive 2 hours, being close to vegas, and driving distance to LA wasn't a bad gig either.

    I suppose it's the fact that I'm a native and have lived here my whole life maybe... but holy hell there are so many other places I'd rather live.

    If i didn't have my entire family here, a mortgage, a business, and 2 dogs (haha) I'd be out of here in a heartbeat.

    hard to pick up and leave all that though.


    I'm thinking about moving to Washington though... well, been thinking about it for about 4 years now.

    I did that drive 3 years ago and it was absolutely amazing. Driving up the PCH on our way to monterey was crazy. There was so much fog that you couldn't see the ocean below the cliffs....


    ugh... i miss that. damn it. :wtc:
