    Like the feel of #8. Is that an ocelot? Very cool patterns.

    Damn... are you serious? Never get too many Jeremys :lol:

    The A200 is pretty good... I've had it since August. I might upgrade next spring... not sure. Need some lenses too.

    :cheers:

    Yeah man thats pretty crazy..

    Its my first DSLR.. so I really don't have anything else to compare it to but so far I like it pretty good. I just picked up the Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC Macro lens, its suppose to arrive Friday so I'll be sure to post some pictures as soon as I can.

    Cool, that looks like a nice lens!
    This is my best SLR in general... only had film before this (which I can't stand...). Can't wait to see shots with the new lens... I was thinking about getting it.

    The Atlanta zoo is a lot smaller than I have expected and so are the exhibit areas. Most of the animals looked really depressed when I was there last month. I'm glad you actually saw the cloud leopard. Both the leopard and tiger were hiding when I was there.

    Nice shots. You may want to try bumping up the saturation and play with the levels to make them pop more.

    Yes they are pretty small, and really its in a bad part of town almost makes you feel like your gonna be car jacked on the way. But I guess that part of Atlanta didn't look that way in the 60's when it was built. I agree that they do look really depressed.. you would think they would spend a little more money on that place to expand it or at least renovate it. I loved the "cloud leopard" it was just about the only animal there that wanted to come out of hiding, the tiger in the exhibit beside it stayed way in the back so you couldn't really get a good enough picture.

    Thanks :D I haven't been shooting on manuel for very long and I'm trying my best but none of pictures look as good as most of these on this forum, and I'm not real sure how to make them look any better..

    The first step is to know your camera and the basics of composition, exposure, etc. (see Understanding Exposure by Bryan Peterson, for example)

    Then check out the links above ...

    Then ... practice, practice, practice and more practice :)
