    Another newbie saying hello from Kent :)
    I haven't quite made it into the DSLR world yet (saving the pennies!) but loving my Canon Powershot which gets some pretty cool pics. :eek:
    I'd be interested in any feedback on my pics.

    Great photos. I have just bought a second hand DSLR....can't wait how to use is properly.

    Love Laura.

    Hello back from Essex. :D

    Good examples of what can be shot without using a dSLR IMHO.

    I think you have a good foundation for when and if you shift upto dSLR or other system. :)

    Agreed - I've no doubt at all that you've got a good eye for a picture. There's some great images in there. If you're creating stuff this good without one, the world may well be your mollusc when you get a DSLR.

    Thanks for the feedback - thats really reassuring feedback to hear :) The stones on the fence were there presumably placed by visitors through the years - I love anything a bit quirky like that! Looking forward to learning more before claiming my mollusc :p

    Love your pictures - I am a newbie to but certainly trailing behind your level

    I havent got a dSLR yet either but looking forward to a time when I think I can justify one.


    This site looks like a great place to get started - other posters seem very friendly

    Personally I'd say don't get too hung up on getting a dSLR. To a degree that is why CSCs have come along.

    Some of them are now coming onto the secondhand market. Like the GF1 etc.

    It can be nice to have a camera you can just grab and not be bulky and heavy.

    I can't remember here who said it but the "best camera is the one you have with you at the time"- I have a compact and a DSLR but on a practical level the DSLR is a bit much to take out so I use it at home (still learning so I'm taking the same scene with different settings to compare different shutter speeds etc) and on special occasions but my compact stays in my bag for anything I might see on a daily basis or for those occasions when a DSLR wouldn't be allowed (I'm getting into concert photography and most of the time a DSLR isn't permitted- I've had some success asking for a photopass but otherwise no)
