• Congratulations on the new camera Neil. I’m glad you have such supportive parents and I’m sure they’ll enjoy your efforts.

    I’m glad to see I’m not the only one that points to the moon after every upgrade of a camera or a lens. That image is outstanding!

  • Congrats on the new camera. Everything I’ve heard of it makes me want one even though it’s so expensive.

    I guess I just have to start saving (or find a way to make my photography pay some bills).

  • Congratulations on your new camera. As a parent, I know our support lasts a lifetime, and I’m so happy your parents came through when you needed them. To me, part of being a parent is helping to support your child’s dream, if you can.

    Your pictures are great. I just got my tripod in the mail tonight, so I hope to take a few pictures tomorrow morning. Sunrise in LA; it doesn’t get any better…………:)

  • Congratulations and Welcome to the Club!
    Now go take a weekend away from home… Find something to shoot that is different. Play with the settings and features. Stretch it’s legs, let it run. See what she’s got!
    I got mine 10-days before leaving for Yellowstone, so I really checked it out there… in the Snow, and Frost, and Light!

    Oh… and don’t forget to buy extra batteries (good luck finding them) and, what the heck, buy the Grip too!
    Nice images with your story.

  • Really congrats!!! Having a camera like 5d here in my country is something like “impossible”… xD… it would cost a entirely year of work =T (assuming we’re living to pay the camera xD).

    It’s a wonderful camera and I’m sure you’re gonna make good use of it! =]

  • And OMG! How cute is your cat pouring like that???
    Soooooooooooo cute!!!!! *_*

  • Almost every blog I have read about someone gotten their 5D mkII they put some extra thought into their first frames with the camera. That says quite a bit about photographers passion to their gear. I would probably do the same thing if I got the new 5D. Good luck on the career in photography!

  • I strongly recommend that you turn the No Follow off in your comment section.

    I’ll watch Google Webmaster Tools, and if the links don’t show up after a couple of weeks — I won’t go back to that blog again.

    Another suggestion: you should have a Top Commentator widget installed.

    Do Follow and Top Commentator will ensure that you have a successful blog with lots of readers!

    • I haven’t used NoFollow deliberately, it must simply be a default setting for wordpress. I don’t mind people getting search engine help by putting links with their comments – I usually delete comments that blatantly link to commercial sites anyway, unless the comment contributes to the discussion. I’ll try and find how to turn this off.

      As for a Top Commentor widget, I like to keep the blog relatively clean, and I’m not sure such a widget would add much. But I’m willing to listen to arguments and have an open mind.
