    Went for a walk with my camera today -- here's some of what caught my eye. Comments and criticism welcome as always. :)

    Good shots. I realize you were trying to get the entire steeple in #6, but not being able to see the street is bugging me...perhaps portrait instead of landscape would have worked better?

    Also, I love #1. Very intriguing. What lens were you using?

    I agree about #6 entirely actually, it was bugging me too.

    Thanks on #1. All these shots were taken with the stock kit lens. I'm saving up right now for the Pentax 10-17mm fisheye, a fast telephoto, and a fast normal prime. I really just started shooting 2 months ago or so, and have only had this camera about 2 weeks. I'm trying to get good enough to justify buying whatever the top level Pentax body is in about a year or so (assuming they improve on the K10D by then), and it will be nice the be able to keep using the same glass.

    Thanks. :D Yeah, these are more small things that caught my eye rather than the "classic" edinburgh shots. If you search my name you can find more of those. Thanks again!

    I like 1-4. 1 and 2 are my favorite. Like the colors in one and the contrast in two.

    Yeah Edinburgh seems like a cool place, its probably in my top ten of places i want to go...

    I live in Scotland's main City :) The one "that'smiles" better. yes :) better

    However Edinburgh is indeed a more beautiful city. The Castle, the churches, the streets the roayal mile - it is a stunning place.

    I don't visit often enough. Here's one from Calton Hill back towards where you shot No8.
