    Being that this is my first post here, I hope I manage to do the image posting correctly.

    I can't believe how much fun photography is... I wish I had gotten into this years ago.

    Here goes :)

    These photos are taken with a Cannon EOS Rebel X that I recently inherited. The camera came with 28-55mm and 75-300 af lenses, a polarizer and a pair of uv filters. After a little reading here, I'm thinking a tripod purchace is in my near future.

    This is taken somewhere in Nevada.

    This one was taken on a sand dune in Oregon. I would have liked for it to come out clearer, and it could probably use a little cropping. Something is just not quite right with it.

    Just because everyone seems to like this one best of my vacation photos, here's another dune pic. Other than the colours, I don't care for it that much. (That white smudge just above the dunes is the moon :p)

    This was taken at an Oregon beach and very nearly resulted in me and my camera getting wet :p

    It's a film camera and had 200 film in it... brand name started with v?

    I don't know what settings I used - I think they were all on landscape mode except the second one, which I think was on automatic... Now that I"m armed with alittle more info, next time I'll go out with a notepad and do everything on manual.

    Great colors. The third is great. But my favorite would be the first with a little less forground. More focus on the rock and sky. However the framing was nice.

    Really nice - very vibrant colours - did you use any filters on the desert shots? You should start using chroma film - if you haven't already - I suggest Fuji Velvia 50. Also be careful when shooting around sand - those small particles get in the damdest of places and can really do a number on a lens.
    I'd love to see more
