    They are so cute! :) I bet they keep you busy when they're running around playing!

    Your first image, the B&W, is really the standout for me. It has the best tones, while the 2 color shots look a bit soft. The flash seems a little harsh in the second image - I think you might have been too close to him, since his little face is a little cut off from the frame, as well. Look at your nice composition in the first image - try more like that.

    THankyou Terri , for your kind words .I plan on staying around these boards for a long time. since photog is quickly becoming one of my passions along with Psychology , maybe i can somehow conbine the two. and im B&W photography , which i understand is your specialty if im not mistaken.

    the second pic got cut off because:
    A: i now realize i was too close.
    B: He was moving around so much i was lucky to get these pictures at all.
    C: my current equipment (sony p31) isnt the most adjustable camera (not blaming equipment at all though)

    im looking to purchase a good first slr to learn on and use for some time to come. Any advice? , Suggestions. my budget is about 400 lense and body.
    They are about 3 weeks old i was told. Very Active!! LOL

    Ha, I have no specialty yet because I still consider myself a student of photography. B&W is the standout for me, but that's personal preference. :wink:

    As far as your budget for slr, that's not bad for just getting started. You will have a good variety to choose from. Keep in mind that the more lens options you give yourself, the better your images will be. The point being, try to get a camera body as inexpensively as you can, so you can get yourself more than one lens. Or, if you want to get just one good zoom lens instead, avoid variable-speed and shell out what you must to make that happen. I can't advise you on brand types - I think in your price range any reputable brand-name will do: Pentax, Canon, Nikon and the like. A good lens will probably cost more than the body! So concentrate on getting yourself a good lens to go with it. Good luck and have fun with your search! Hope to see more of your images soon. :D
