New kid on the block with my 7d and first pics.

Back in July I finally jumped back into the world of photography by purchasing a new Canon 7d. After alot of internal debate and research I decided that I wanted to purchase another dslr after over 13 years of nothing but P&S cameras. I had always been a Nikon guy but after a lengthy talk at my local camera shop the sales rep put a 7d in my hands and said this is what you want. Already familiar with this web site I then looked to these forums to see what this camera could do and was blown away by what you all here had posted. And I thank you for sharing your work along with sharing your advice so freely!

My new kit also includes the:

18-135 kit lens

100-400L zoom lens

100L macro lens

10-24 Tamron zoom

Aside from everyday family stuff my interests and reasons for my lens choices include kids sports, nature and landscapes, hydroplane races , and airshows just to name a few. It has been a learning experience with limited time to play with my new toy. Having once shot at a professional level for 6 years with everything from a 4x5 camera to medium format studio work and my own kit of a pair of Nikons with 8 different lens's I know what I want in a shot. It's just having to learn how to get it out of my new kit. I'll post a few shots will always welcome some constructive c&c to help me learn and grow as a photographer.

Thank you again for helping me out all this time and helping me pick out my new kit!

Trying to use some ND filters for the first time. I always liked the effect of the flowing water at slower shutter speeds.

I've got other stuff for other posts so thats it for now. Thanks again!  Dale
