    Just returned from Jessops after buying the limited edition black Canon EOS300D. For anyone looking for there first budget DSLR this is a solid piece of kit. Less features than the Nikon D70 but superior image quality in comparison. All I have to do now it get to grips with all the manual features this baby has.

    This is one of the very first shots I took when I got home. Would like to know your comments as I am a beginner looking for pointers.

    I would guess that you took this and then modified it in PS (or similar)?

    What ISO did you use? There seems to be some grain there. I would expect this with ISO400+ but not if you're using ISO100.

    The picutre itself is really nice. Moody and the black and white works really well.

    What lenses do you have? If you have the EFS 18-55 (kit lens), then I would recommend getting something higher spec as these are notoriously unreliable. There's been much chastisement of the kit lenses on fora all over the net.

    Edit: Ok, just read your signature :)

    I like the photo mate;) Was reading somewhere that adding noise can add a little extra to a black and white, and i think it works well in your photo. It might be just a little over done for some, but all in all i like it. I have the 20D and the 18-55 lens. Will buy a better lens once i recover from what i paid for the 20D:laugh:

    I hate being stuck behind a student writing a cheque out for a bag of chips:laugh:

    Think about all the chips you can buy (CASH!) when you've finished your degree;)

    Well, they both work. I prefer the second one, it's even more moody. I prefer it without the grain too.

    Nice work Sir!
