Hey all,

Well I finally got my new D80! If any of you remember my lens inquiry I decided on the Sigma 17-70mm and I'm really happy with it so far.

Here are some pictures I managed to take on a quick bike ride around the lake that's near my house.

All photos taken with the Sigma 17-70mm. Any comments?

Thanks guys! Hopefully I'll get to take some more serious pictures soon. And I've been recruited to shoot a wedding for a friend's father in September which, obviously, I'm extremely nervous for. I've shot at a wedding before but never as the main photographer.

its best to look at other wedding photos and get that composition into your head

hmm only a month away better get some models and start snapping!!

Congrats on the D80. Now, in regards to the wedding...

Get a flash! And go learn how to use it!

haha thanks. i use a flash on my film slr so i'm pretty sure i have the basics down. but for the D80 i'll probably be getting an sb-400 which from what i read is a great little flash...and it's much more affordable than an sb-600.
