I so much enjoy your work, Jeff. You obviously know your camera very well. I dream of the day my Nikon D90 becomes "an extension of my arm" and not a challenge trying to express myself. I love my Canon pocket camera. Great quality for the ease of using it...then I let my DDR do my magic. How cool that you didn't even use PS!

Love all three images!
