    Hello. I purchased a Canon Rebel XT about a month ago, and as of now only have the kit lens (18-55 mm) as well as the 50 mm (f/1.8) lens. It took me forever to learn how to use it (I refuse to put the settings on automatic), but I'm finally starting to get the hang of it. Here are a few of my favorite pics, please comment :)

    Nice pics. Much better than mine so far. I have a hard time getting away from auto focus myself, but I'm starting to force myself to do it.

    Mitch, I gotta say, #3 in the first set is fantastic! I'd love to have a print of that hanging in my house- there's just something so spooky and old about it.

    Also, the pug picture is pretty adorable.

    My friends and I used to go inside of it--really creepy. There were newspapers from the 40s spread all over the floor, and there were many, many shoes just randomly thrown out on the floors.

    I like the first version of the house you posted better. That really is a fantastic shot. You're off to a great start - good for you for keeping your camera on manual! Keep it up.

    Thanks!

    I want to get it printed on canvas and framed because I think it would look great in my dorm (through Imagekind, which easily imports your Flickr photos), but the total would come to 85.67. I doubt that's really worth it though, lol.

    the shot of the old house with the big trees are great! sharp and the sepia version gives it a very old creepy look.
