I would hope not. I would have lost all respect for you if that was your sister. Thats not the kind of picture one should take of a blood relative.

Nah, that is my girlfriend. Had to take some photos for class... I was careful to strategically crop the image before posting. ;)

Sony DSC-F717 (5 mp)
Taken Aug. 16th, 2006 in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.

I was just taking the picture of the cannon when I saw that ship in the background. I waited around for about 10 minutes until it was in view, then shot it. :)

Heres mine, unfortunely the only camera besides my little canon i had was a film rebel, and I haven't gotten it developed yet. However, I did manage to capture this pic of 2 red tails (i think at least, the tail color isn't totally correct...) Beautiful birds.

This is a picture I did of my friends daughter's foot. Basic shoot that was enhanced in Photoshop a bit to bring out the rings.

if that doesnt help turn up the ISO level on your camera , but not too high as you dont want noise (400 or lower is ideal, pending on camera, my Canon 20D doesnt really show noise until 1600 and even then it is very little, pending on lighting of course)

hold your breath as well when your account to take the pic.

I always hold down the picture taking button almost to the point of no return, then I check that everything is aligned/in focus. Next I hold my breath momentarily as I take the photo.

That is awesome, xstep! You sure the camera needs cleaning?

Do you mind me using it as a desktop picture....umm....I already have it set and it looks absolutely fantastic?

Thanks for the complement. I lucked out as lightning strikes are unpredictable. That was the best of a few strikes I captured. It was also the last, as they were getting to close for comfort!

Sure you can use the image as a desktop picture. Enjoy it.

As for the cleaning, I have an odd blotch on some images that I can't explain. It appears in the same location when I do notice it.
