    Here's a couple of pics of some Virgina Creeper on our fence between rain showers a while back. Nice overcast day so the lighting was good. The b&w is one of my first attempts at conversion.

    Thanks everyone!

    I'm surprised at what the 18-55 kit lens can do. I need to get a tripod for doing those shots though, make life a little easier.

    Question: I know I can do 8x12's with these prints, no problem, but is there any issues going up to the 12x18 (is that the next step up in the 2:3 ratio ??) with the 6MP sensor on the D40?
     
  7. I have two 16*24 prints displayed in my living room from a 6MP dslr with a Sigma 18-200. They get raves, and I still enjoy them! They remain my largest displayed prints! :eek:
