I really appreciate your comments on the pictures... I am sad to say these don't show my skill or what my camera is capable of. For one they are so badly compressed for the quick loading of the website they have lost all their depth. Secondly this is probably the first time I have picked up my camera in close to 8 months... I am way way rusty... Thirdly... I didn't have my good flash with me and had to free hand most of them and they are a bit blurry for my likings and not proper exposed. If anyone is interested in seeing something I consider "one of my good shots" I would more than happy to post them. I frequent a Canon pro photographer forum and am used to their critiquing. Thanks again, make me feel good even though these look like garbage (to me). Oh yeah, if anyone wants anything they have seen uncompressed and full size (10mp) I will send them gladly... let me know.
