    and these next two is just to show those of u that think the people with the DSLR's have an advantage over point and shoot camara's think again. these were shot with a old cybershot camera way before i had a dslr or even knew a bit about photogrofy

    The crop is much better. I would still have come down lower from the top.

    I really like #3, that is very well captured. The eye could have been sharper, but I love the way the tail disa[ears around the branch and out of focus using DOF.

    Really interesting creature, I like the slight blue on either side of the stripe. Might be worth boosting the colours a little.

    Your landscape shots are awesome. The sunset one in the second post is stunning.
