    That's using the cheap bundled lens, Nikon 28-80 f3.3/5.6. Scanned with an epson stylus cx6400 (just a multifunction printer w/flatbed)

    Skyscraper i was experimenting with a polarizer, thus the darker sky

    I love the parrot. Such striking colors against a well defined but drab background. Really grabbed my attention. Well done.

    Hey! Another San Antonian! I've been living here for most of my life.

    I love the skyscraper shot (the name of the building escapes me though). I think the distortion adds to the shot. It gives me a feeling of being overwhelmed by its height.

    Very nice work!

    I really need to get downtown one day to get some shots, but I don't think my parents would like me hanging around there by myself. :D
