Was that RAW or JPEG?
this was JPEG - I haven't even started to play with the RAW stuff yet - still finding my feet. This is my 2nd 'serious' camera - the first was a 10D that I bought in 2004. But there is no comparison between the two.

Now I have to improve my skills to be able to do it justice - any tips? I am at the point with my photography where I take better than average photos (you know - the ones that make your non-photographically-inclined friends go 'oooohh', but that are still light years from where you want them to be), and I have a reasonable technical grasp of the subject, but I need more practice 'seeing' what will make a good shot. And then there are some areas that am a complete noob - flash, studio, macro etc .
It is nice to be able to blame any deficits on me rather than not knowing whether it is me or the gear!
