    Sold my Sony Alpha A500 and purchased a Canon 550D (T2i). These are the first shots right out of the box with the kit lens. My settings varied from f3.5 to f5.6, but I stayed consistent at a 400 ISO and normal exposure. All shots were taken with natural light only and in aperture priority mode. Composition was almost non existent since I was simply following my kiddo around and snapping shots.

    I would love to comment, but there are just too many. I feel a bit overwhelmed when looking at them all, because I like to give opinions on each photo.

    He's a cute little kid, so you ought to try and help convey that by showing him as "a little kid", within his environment. In the 22nd photo, you turn the camera to portrait orientation, and show him head-to-toe. Bingo!!! There he is...an entire little kid..wearing cute little Thomas The Tank Engine tennis shoes, and a tee shirt that says "whiz kid" on the front of it. Short pants, chubby little legs, clambering up onto a playground structure.

    If you want to get a large head size, and a clear expression, and still show his hands and some of his body and clothing, you need to turn the camera to the tall orientation more often. It's possible to follow one's small child around and actually work on composition, and Tip Number One is to hold the camera in portrait mode more often than horizontal or landscape mode. Try and include both hands in the shots. MIx in some half-body with some full-length shots. On about 20 of the shots, the pictures that resulted from a horizontal camera orientation are duller and less-interesting than you would have gotten if the camera had been rotated.

    Yikes! Wayyyy too many pictures, and all very similar in composition. I understand he's a very cute little boy and you're excited to get your new camera, but maybe narrow it down to a few favorites ;)

    I suggest you learn to edit. Not post process, but edit. That means to go thru all those that are similar and dump all but the one that is best. Few people besides the kid's family want to see twenty shots that are nearly identical. Look at them side by side, compare, consider, decide which one (ok maybe two)you think is best, tweak it in PP and put it up for consideration. Again, most people dont want to sift through multiple shots that are nearly the same. My 2 cents.

    Wow, bunch of vultures. Ok we get it, he posted a couple more images than expected, get over it.

    Firstly, welcome to the forum Jeff and congrats on your new buy! I could most definitely understand the excitement you would have over your new camera. When i got a new camera, i would just take photos of everything and anything.. it's good, have fun with it :)

    As stated above, learning about editing is a good idea. Distinguishing between a good photo and a bad photo is rather important, just to save space, time and whatnot. but hell, if you love them all, then you keep them, its your son. ;)

    I don't care for "kids with dirty faces" shots.

    Took my "pick of the litter" and gave it a quick edit in PS (really, I just like using my Bamboo tablet...)
