    Cute baby. Your photo seems a little desaturated. Perhaps you can fix this during post processing or you can keep it. Desaturation often has a nice effect; in this case, it looks pretty good. For me, the sun is fine and doesn't harm the picture.

    just my 2 bit suggestions.

    p.s. You're gonna love your XTi. I love mine =) If you can afford an extra $90, grab yourself the 50mm f1.8 lens. It's a perfect compliment for your new dslr.

    I know what you mean! Just wait till you get "lens fever". I'm going nuts trying to figure out how I'm going to afford the Canon 28-135mm lens on my tight budget, LoL :lmao:.

    SDESHA!!! The finpix s700 camera is the first camera I owned before I got my Pentax SLR. If you need any help with that camera let me know. I learned on that camera and is a great camera to learn with. Just pm me.

    Quick tip for you though put the camera into program mode and set the iso to its lowest setting which if i remember right was iso 64. I don't know if you have read your manual much on that camera but program mode is pretty much auto but with user settings. Another words for example setting the iso when in program mode to iso 64 instead of just auto mode. Also use the scenes features such as sunset or others. It adds a great affect until you get used to shooting in just manual mode. You have a great camera have fun with it. The picture does look good. I would say retake it with camera set to program mode and iso 64. If its a sunny day even having that low of iso there is enough light to get a good shutter speed. Let me know how that works out for you...

    And don't take this as I'm putting you down for a bad photo just some tips from a guy with that camera. Have fun.

    O and don't say your a loser. Your camera is great for taking photos and will turn out even better with practice. Practice is the key..
