Tom surprised me with a Nikon D40X with a 18-135 lens for Christmas. I've been taking a few pics of the cats and I can't believe how awesome the pictures are turning out. Here's just a couple I took yesterday.
Can't wait for all these darn clouds to go away so I can go outside and experiment. I have not done anything to these photos - straight out of the camera.
I can't believe the vibrancy of Mr. Orange.
I know both of these would have been over exposed with my other camera because I was so close to Hailey and the flash is usually so bright, but they are fine.
