    First shots with Canon 7D

    I purchased a 7D on Friday and walked around YBOR city with it on Saturday. These are the first posts taken with it. Very open to comments and critique.

    Congratulations ... you lucky person. I hope you get lots of pleasure from it.

    I particularly like the first one - the rear of the bike. There's more than just a picture of a decorated bicycle there. I would call that a real street scene. I think it's the fact that you've got the edge of the kerb in it and we see the lines between the kerbstones.

    Thanks Donald. It is the first time I have spent a morning just walking around taking pictures in a few years. I had forgotten how relaxing it can be.

    The only thing I would do to the first one is clone out that bit of litter in the upper right corner.

    Great shots.

    Thanks Pops. I will have to clone it out later in the week. I did not notice it. I will have to pay more attention.

    Thanks for the comments. I switched from the XTI to the 7D. I have a big learning curve on the controls that it has. I like how they are at my finger tips and I do not have push a lot of buttons to get to them.

    I've been to Ybor City a few times, and it would be a neat place to walk around and take some photos.
    I'm thinking of an XTi to a T2i jump myself. I would really love to be able to turn up the ISO to 6400 and still get good shots.
    I like your first photo simply because that's a cool looking bike!
    I like the second photo because there is a lot going on there really - light/shade/contrast/reflections/interesting lines/and of course the destination displayed ont the rail car "Ybor City" - could be used in a tourist book/brochure I think.

    I am envious! We bought its little brother (60D) and are delighted but fight over who is going to take the pic! Below is one of the first photo's that I took with mine. Your photos show your interest in lively colour and yet the quote is deep. Obviously a very interesting person. Enjoy yr camera!

    Brian- thanks for the comments. Ybor is neat. I have lived here for several years and this is the first time I have walked around and looked at the place with more than a casual interest. I thought about the T2i and the 60d. The 7d just felt better to me.

    Thanks for the comments. I am one who is envious. Your location is much more interesting than here. As far as being a deep quote, I am a maintenance manager and that is true to our field.
