    I like the last one. Bad choice imo. It's dirty o.o

    The 2nd one seems cool, I just don't like the posters.

    What camera are you using?

    definintely!

    I've been amazed sometimes seeing shots taken from a low end camera. Also, how do you define expensive: $200+, or $500+ or $2000+? It all depends on your budget.

    Point and shoot when I was just beginning to learn. This was taken from the goal line about 5 rows from the top section in the nosebeed section...

    Original unedited:

    Heavily developed to fix white balance, crop, etc. Note the detail in the ice from the skates. Had I known what I know now about my camera, the image quality would have been much much better. Not too bad for a point and shoot from peanut heaven:

    After I've learned a bit more about photography. You can see the bokeh in the far background and even the blurred visible flowers behind the main subject flowers/bee:

    My attempt of a bit more on the artistic side:

    And more of my artistic side:

    Even a 4 year old can use it and get a nice shot:
