I love that last one! This am. I spotted a great spider in its web and ran to get the camera (so I could get a pic for you) only to find the battery needed charging. I'll check on the spider again tomorrow...

Have fun with your new "toy"!!!


oh, love the mushroom. well-composed :)

Great new tool for an already amazing photographer :) The bokehs are really beautiful with the new camera (bokeh=the aesthetic quality of the blur in the photo) Superb! The perfect parasol shroom and the forest fan are my favorites.


I agree with Geninne, that bokeh is amazing! I'm still figuring out my not so newish anymore camera. Good for you to just jump in and play!


amazin photos margaret!! very cool high definition!!!! perfect for all the beauties you always share with us!!!besos and happy use!!!!


Yay! Congratulations! If you ever come to LA, I can teach you all kinds of tricks with that camera!

Smitten- I can see why.


the 'umbrella' mushroom... precious! n-joy your new toy!


brave leap! and interested to see more of your pics with it.. I'm also 'outgrowing' the Canon I bought in 2004 as it is not great at/I really miss doing landscapes.. so looking forward to more recommendations. Cx

I recently moved up to a Canon Rebel T1i and at first I was always comparing it to my other cameras. I love it, and the best part is if the photo doesn't turn out I probably took several of the same and can delete those I don't want. Your photos are always wonderful to view.


I can't believe you took your old photos with a point and shoot. The new ones do look sharper. I am plucking up courage to get a new camera.

I never would have thought your old pictures were with a point and shoot!! I have the Canon Rebel and find it to be a wonderful camera.

I bought the same camera a few weeks ago and am still trying to figure it out. It's amazing though, the difference. There's a depth in the photos that wasn't there with my point and shoot. (which I still whip out from time to time) I actually bought a book about how to use the camera but haven't cracked it open yet...maybe I'll do that today.

Love that last one, especially.


i love the last one. my husband bought me a digital slr for the hols - i haven't looked back


They came out amazing! Enjoy:)

Do I see new prints for sale in your shop in the near future? Please say yes! The mushroom is amazing!


That last photo is beautiful!!

I just got a Canon Rebel too, but I am used to my cheapo Canon Elph and I don't know how to use any of the settings! yikes. It is gonna take me a while.


i love my canon rebel too...when it's windy or trying to shoot flyers, try putting your ISO on auto and turn the round dial to sport mode (it's the little runner guy)...you are bound to get an excellent shot out of the 4 or 5 it shoots in sport mode...if you'd like to see some examples, please visit my blog..i've had mine since last november and am also smitten

Those are great pictures and a very nice bokeh! What lens are you using? The shots are truly wonderful. Congratulations for acquiring your XSI. Did you buy it in the camera store? I hope they have rewards and bonuses, I sure got a lot of bonus when I bought my 5D.
