Thanks. That was a picture I took for our first assignment in Bryan's first class in Creativity. I really enjoyed the two classes I took - I learned quite a bit about making more compelling images.

I love my D1x - I've had it a bit over a year, used it a lot, had no problems, and loved the results. I recently bought a D100 as well - my wife and I just completed a 2 week bicycling trip in the south of France, and I couldn't see lugging a camera the size/weight of the D1x on my bike. Judging by the 1000 or so images I shot while in France, I'm pretty happy with the D100 too. I love
digital SLRs :^)

Ryan P. Booth October 05, 2002 I am really jealous...I am still just a college student and about a close as I can come to a digital slr is some nose prints on the window of a camera day...look forward to seeing more of your work.
