Colorado: I'm not really sure. I would just like to get a nice Canon base, and an awesome lens for shooting horse action shots ;) I still have to look into it but if you would like a nice 'simple' camera I would recommend for you would be what amandaandeggo recommended and thats the Canon Rebel xti. It is an easy and affordable camera.

Amandaandeggo: I love the picture!! Yeah those a great cameras.. I may go that route if its all I got... Plus you could always buy a good lens to snap onto it too ;)

Poptart: Right now I use whatever I can get my hands on. The better pics I took I was borrowing a Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XSi from a friend.
But the less quality ones were my little Canon Powershot ;)

Sunday: Thanks!!

I am happy that you have taken my (lets say critique comments) positively.

Yes the main thing is to get a good camera with variety of lenses, you can either buy Canon or Nikon as suggested before, Nikon D700 is quite good. Here is the link if you like to see it
Nikon UK - Products - Catalogue - Digital Cameras - SLR - Professional - D700 - Overview

or canon from here
Canon Digital SLR Camera Cameras - Canon UK

or if you want you can choose the Hassleblad, here

Hasselblad.co.uk

I want to see more pics! more pics please

Regards

Thanks so much for the input!!
What would you suggest I keep an eye out for as far as features??
All the cameras you showed are amazing but what would be worth paying the extra dollar for??

More pics soon, promise!

This one is nice you use the rubber tool there? I would say use a burning tool when you have done with rubber tool. If you look closely to the image you can still see the horse's white back and below as well. That shows the horse has turned his neck. So he is standing and looking at the right hand side.

You can do alot of things with Photo shop, I'd recommend you to get one.

As far as the camera is concern there are a lot of things which you need to look at, most importantly the price . Where Canon would be around 7/900, Nikon could be 1100 to 1300 and Hassleblad is around 25,000 to 30,000.
Then it comes to the actual lens, burst, sensor, image quality, adaptability, speed, viewfinder, ISO range etc.

I'll find some sites for you to look at, which explains properly what you should look for in different cameras once you decide your budget .

Now for the above picture can we have more burning and rubbing on the lighten areas so that it looks better? ...

I'd apologize again for making critical recommendations again, however I am sure you would take them positively as you did before.

Regards

Yeah it was a quick one. I still am workin on it some.
I have Photoshop 7.0.

As far as the camera I think I'm leaning Canon...

No problem, I know you only mean well. And its good to not always have everyone say, "Wow! Its beautiful" Even though I love that too

Coool, to tell you honestly my friend's first digital SLR was Canon EOS30D here is the details of it [http://www.canon.co.uk/For_Home/Prod...30d/index.asp]

The photos were amazing, though you might need to buy extra lenses to get even better images.

Photoshop 7 is not bad either, the tools does the same job as in Photoshop CS so it's not that bad. Just use more of Photoshop.

Now something off topic, Do you do web designing using CSS or ASP.Net or AJAX? Just wondering what should I be using for my next personal project .

I am more towards AJAX but CSS would be easier however I would like your opinion in this, if you don't mind

Regards

Actually... I'm still learning myself... ;)
So anything you have to teach me, please do.
For the most part, on the things I have worked on, I have done all my designing on photoshop and converted it to frontpage, dreamweaver, ect. to make websites....

Ah right, I to be honest do very less work on Photoshop in terms of creation of the sites. I usually use to use CSS in Dreamweaver to create a skeleton first. Then use Photoshop for editing photos which needs to go into the site, most cases I use Flash buttons and some animations but as demands are changing, I am now putting Videos (flash) on the headers, which is overwhelmingly appereciated by most people.

The next personal project I want to do, is to create one for my Call of Duty 4 Clan site, though just need some time to start it.

Frontpage, I hate it. I don't like it because of its to "stiffness". I would rather have an open workshop then fixed. If you know what I mean.

So any projects you have done so far?any sites?

I think we should move the subject somewhere else as it does not suit under the "Pictures Topic" . What do you think? Shall we move to General Topic for this subject?

Regards
