    There's some really great shots here - wide and varied too.
    Do you think I can take a decent shot of myself though??>
    I think I will have to use the remote and the tripod because
    all the hand held ones, even at arms lenth and zoomed in a
    bit, turn out looking awfull ~ nothing like what i see when I
    pass a mirror - but I'm not very photogenic!!
    Here's one with friends & my wife, from last year...

    Great photos everybody! It's nice to see such a wide range of people/locations.

    Geoff, nice to see another Brit here. By the way, what do you think of the A200? - looks a fine little camera.

    2nd shot

    Well, I already posted one version of this... I have two uses for my DSLR. One is for reference material for painting, and the other is to document the paintings themselves. There is a difference in what I want out of the two different types of photos. In my reference, I hardly every use flash. I am not so much interested in "the way things really are" but more in "how they appear to be." That means that I want someone walking beside a green wall to have the green bounce into their skin tone, even though out of context it might make them look ill. Contrariwise, I want the pictures of my paintings to reflect as well as they can what the paintings would look like under good lighting.

    Comments welcomed...

    Nice work.

    Not sure what it means, but its got some classic catchy components of, ahhhmm, something. Yellow cab, movie theater, street guy, lots of "lines" helping the eye out. Anyway; nice painting. You've got a nice skill there!

    Great shot Geoff. Really captures a nice moment. Is that a wireless remote?

    Funny comments about hand held and arms length. Yeah, when I looked at mine I wanted to take a shower, shave, find the nose hair trimmer, get 10 hours of sleep, then go visit my plastic surgeon neighbor.
