Yesterday I got my new camera, so took it with me for me and my dog's daily hike. Snapped a few pictures, just for practice...not really good IMO I'm still messing with it. I can't get the flash right, I went out around 5 so the sun was going down not the best settings for a newbie. I got a Canon Rebel T1i, EF-S 18-55 IS and EF-S 55-250 mm F/4-5.6 IS. I used the 55-250mm lens yesterday evening. Anyways, enjoy. I don't have any editing software yet, I'm going to get the Photoshop Elements 8. Some of the pictures I'd like to edit (like my dog's pet eyes), but will have to wait until I get the proper software. Once I edit them, I'll post them again. Pet eyes Too dark. I think it's too dark, too much flash, and the background is a little distracting.
