    Hi folks, I'm Craig from Denbighshire, North Wales, I'm 35, married, 3 kids, 2 dogs, pipe, slippers, garden shed etc...
    Just got my first dslr (Nikon D5100 twin lens kit).
    I'm slowly getting the hang of all the settings & absolutely loving the camera!
    I've always loved taking photos but never had a decent camera.
    If anyones interested pop over to my flickr photostream to see what i've taken with the D5100 so far (bare in mind im a newbie lol) and also if anyone uses twitter feel free to follow :D

    Thanks folks.

    Great photos, love the air show ones.

    What a great part of the world you live in, so much to photograph (I've just got back from Caernarfon).

    Welcome from England. :)

    Fairly nice pics. Not really the place to comment.

    But you are making one basic error on shooting the wingwalkers. The shuttter is too high at 1/2000 you can see the props are not blurred. You need to get the shutter speed down to sometimes as low as 1/200 or you might get blur on the prop at 1/400. Hope your not offended by the tip there. For jets you might go upto 1/2000 because they can do quite quick flybies.
