After all that, my question is what do you shoot for camera(s) and favorite subjects, thanks............
My bride has a Nikon D70 with a variety of lenses. I bought for her when I was going bankrupt from developing her 35mm film!

She shoot mainly nature: sunrises, sunsets, wildlife - particularly raptors, deer, foxes, and rare birds - and grandchildren.

I use it a little bit to shoot motorcycles, autos, and nature.

fishnbanjo, my sister has a Nikon D90, but she won't let me touch it (of course, given what they cost, that's probably just as well). Then again, I probably wouldn't know what to do with something as advanced as that.

The only thing about my little 6MP point&shoot that I wish I could change, would be that it only has a 3x optical zoom....and the digital zoom, at least on this camera, really sucks. So if I am trying to get some wildlife in a shot, I really have to try and be sneaky-quiet to get close enough....and I'm not as nimble as I was 40lbs ago, so it's not easy.

A 3mp digital camera with a model name I don't know how to spell or pronounce

I loved my D70 it gave me confidence after a long hiatus from shooting, when I purchased my D2x and got by the steep learning curve of that camera I sold the D70 to a friend and he, and his bride, are having a ball with it, great camera.

noobvious, I still have stealth in the woods even with my illness, when I deer hunted I was so invisible I had deer walk to within 4' of me and not figure me out, took a lot of effort to stop myslef from shaking.

Great photo! No matter what the prize was the real prize is the photo itself!!

I have won 2 contests with this photo and have been encouraged to place it in another.

I also won the LL Bean Customer Photo Contest with this one and it was in one of their catalogs, it won over $500 in prizes most of which my wife stole from me.

Here's one taken from the boat the day we saw the bald eagle. All I did is resize this with Irfanview to be forum-size friendly. I think a lot of my pics are more due to my being in the right place at the right time than anything else, because I really don't know what the heck I am doing.

I think that the argument that digital is not "real" photography has pretty much completely died for anything other that very large format. FINALLY
