Hi DJBooduh, and welcome to ThePhotoForum.
There are just a little too many photos here to pass an individual comment on each and everyone, and they don't even carry any numbers, which would make it easier, too, to say e.g. "I like Photo so-and-so best because...". But I like what I see and can tell that you like to work with the DOF your Minolta gives you ... in some photos you achieve a nice bokeh.
I think I like your second photo presented here best of all with its DOF and the natural light!
I see what you mean... I am going to collect my newest roll that I filled with pics taken with the Leica later this morning, as soon as the shops open, and it is like waiting for Christmas . I always have to wait two days to get my prints back and tension rises a lot in those days .
But on the other hand I also appreciate to be so instantly gratified with some of the digital pics I take... I like both.
