    Would you keep this photo?

    I did play with the colors a little bit. I don't mean would you not delete it, but if you took this photo would it be a keeper to you? Something to put on your flikr or whatever.

    How would you spend $1,000??

    Get decent lenses before you splurge on bodies. I would suggest a D80 body and a Sigma 18-50 F2.8 Macro

    Not your average day at the office

    Interesting story. It sounds almost fun in a nerve racking kind of way.

    are my lenses up to par?

    Well, the best lens in this category would be the Canon 17-55 F2.8. But if that is a little out of your budget, the next best lens is the Sigma 18-50 F2.8 Macro, with the Tamron 17-50 F2.8 following the Sigma.

    some random beginer shots C&C welcomed

    Way too many images, but from what I can see, 12 and 2 are the best.

    What to buy?

    If you want to get serious about photography, you'll need an SLR. Look for a used Nikon D70 or D50 kit. That should start you off well. Edit: Scratch that. Enjoy your D90.

    Help with making sports pictures crisp..

    First off, use manual mode for best results. Your main problem is probably your lens. The 70-300 is a very slow lens. I would recommend an 80-200 F2.8 or even a 70-200 F2.8VR if you can afford it.

    Kenko Pro 300 1.4x TC Initial Impressions

    They all look good except the third one, which looks terrible (not composition-wise). I was under the impression that even with 2x TCs, you can't tell any difference from normal sized prints.

    Awesome! That shot is definitely cash money.

    Third party lens hoods?

    Are third party lens hoods any good as long as they twist and lock onto the hood mount of the lens? I'm looking for a hood for my Nikon 80-200mm F2.8 (the HB-7 hood) and I'm seeing a lot of hoods closely resembling the HB-7 for less than half the price. Does it matter?

    Camera Suggestions for a DSLR newbie

    DSLRs are for pictures, video cameras are for video. Do you want to take video, or do you want to take pictures. If you absolutely must have video, then I guess a Nikon D90 will work, but if video is such a priority then why are you getting a DSLR in the first place?

    The fact is, to do the type of photography you want to, its going to costs many thousands of dollars. The absolutely cheapest route (while trying to to compromise with cheap kit zooms). For landscape: Sigma 18-50 F2.8 ($400) For Macro: Sigma 105mm F2.8 ($400) For wildlife: Canon 400mm F5.6...

    Nikon 18-70 f/3.5-4.5? Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4?

    If you're looking for a superwide, the Tamron 14mm F2.8 goes for around $600 used. I hear its a very high quality landscape lens, although the front element protrudes like crazy, making filters a no-no and damage very likely in the event of a drop.

    Nikon 18-70 f/3.5-4.5? Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4?

    Manual focusing can be a real pain sometimes, so I would recommend a high quality zoom. The 18-70 is an excellent kit lens. However, it is a kit lens. The 17-35 F2.8-4 is more of a semi-pro/advanced amateur lens. For quality, the 17-35 is the way to go. I also believe it is a full frame lens...

    It would've been a great picture if the birds were in focus.

    3-year old second hand Canon 17-40mm L?

    Its a great lens, especially if you're shooting landscapes, and planning on going FF sometime in the future. It is an L lens, which means it will hold its value over time, not to mention the superb optical and build quality.

    Nikkor 70-200mm VR f/2.8 question

    Unless you're indoors, I doubt VR will be much help. I would go for the AF-S.

    D400 and D750 rumours

    I would leave the MP at 12, maybe even lower it to 10. But if a camera like that existed, I would jump on it.
