    Very cool! I love the colors. It's been a long time since I smelled Klotz premix and heard the screaming quarter bores....:thumbsup:

    still undecided. I liked the D80, but I'm not sure if a few extras are worth double the cost. I might just pick up another D50 while I can.

    the decision is on hold for the moment. I might get the opportunity to take a 90 day volutary lay-off from work. I don't want to buy another camera body unless I'm working. :supergrin:

    Did you do any post processing or is that the original quality of the photos? I've been thinking about jumping into the world of SLR's and been looking at the Rebels. What type of lens were you using and at what distance were you from the bikes?
