Here's a picture of a Regal Eagle (or so I've been told).
I normally don't do bird shots, because I don't have the patience for it. This one was taken at a falconry with the bird sitting very close to me. Makes things a lot easier
It was taken with the Sigma 70-300 wide open at 300mm.

I spent all of last weekend shooting pictures at Mid-Ohio. Out of the 3000+ pictures I shot, these are some of my favorites.
Shot with a D50 using various lenses.

Staying with the automotive theme.. Here is one of a local big turbo SRT-4 that I shot today. I took a lot of exposures and plan to make some HDR's, however this one is single exposure.

The sky in Kuwait is the most boring that I've seen. 10 out of 12 months a year there is no clouds in the sky, not a single one. Some pollution is also visible at a distance of few kilometers ahead(thanks to saddam for that) specially when its "kos"(no wind). Lack of rain makes things dusty and dull to look at.
