    Awesome Pictures. Quite nice to look at.

    (I wonder how you get the colors, they seem brighter/bolder than when I go outside and see things myself.)

    Wearing polarising lenses that aren't tinted will do this. Secondly, you need to boost the saturation a little. Which I do.. the effect I use is designed to be similar to velvia slide film (so about the same vibrancy boost as a quality traditional film)

    Not sure if you can do both those things with the naked eye! Still, that's what art is for...

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Yeah, I know. Just playing off the normal interpretation of "good use of the natural S" on a forum like this!

    It's a Canon EOS300D (Digital Rebel in US) SLR with a 17-40L, usually with a circular polariser. In these shots there is usually a tripod involved.
    Are you happy with your Canon, Geoff? Would you buy it again? I'm considering a Digital Rebel XTi, which is the newest iteration.

    I would.. I might go just one model up in the range though, after years with the Rebel. It's been a good camera though, reliable and good in varied conditions.

    The trick is pairing it with good glass. The kit lens is OK, but you'll notice a big difference with some L glass. Regrettably, so will your wallet.

    I'm pretty sure you won't go wrong with it. You can always buy a better lens later too. Make sure you get at least a UV filter to protect the lens, and a polariser if you want some of the neater skies and colours to come through.

    Canon and Nikon Digital SLRs are both good though, and I doubt there is much to choose between them as being the two main prosumer choices. I find some good advice on Steve's Digicams - Main Menu - good reviews and samples.

    I think it's probably the XSi that's the latest one. Here's the Steve's Digicams review of it :
