The lens I used in almost every one of my shots is my general "walk-around" lens (which is in need of being replaced as it has some nicks on the glass). I had two other lenses with me, a telephoto that I only used for two shots, and a low light lens, which I only used on a couple of rides. Everything else I shot was with my main lens. As far as picking which lens you want, a good place to start is a place like borrowlenses.com. You can rent a lens for a day or two, or how ever long you want, and then try it out to see if you want to plunk down the money on it. My two previous trips, I rented a wide-angle (that stopped just short of fish-eye). I enjoyed it, but am not ready to plunk down the cash for it. My personal process is to look at lenses on Amazon just to read the customer reviews. Then check out the lens on a site that lets you borrow them. As far as a tripod, I can't state enough how much a tripod is needed to get good night time shots. Yes, it's a pain to carry around the park, but looking at the photos it helps you get should make it worth it.

I am really thinking of some kind of telephoto or at least a better range. I see alot of shots on here and they have so much more close-ups from what I have from about the same spot and that is what I want. Also it would be nice for when my kids perform at school I would be able to get a closer image of them instead of at a distance. I guess the biggest part is how close do I want to get. i saw one on Amazon last year that had a high focus that one person said it was so good you could see an ant fart. Don't think I need that kind of lens. Mine is 18-55mm and the ones I was looking at were about 175-200. I will have to see if a place around here has a lens rental like you mentioned.

If you look carefully you can see the tail feathers of a bird going back to it's home. See Cyndi I can get butts too.

He also had a D7000... and apparently little knowledge of what is going on picture wise on the net. I asked if he had ever heard or seen pics by WDWensel... anyway, he was talking settings and stuff, and I told him you had finally thrown that away and gone with your gut and done the images! As in done, no need for anyone else to shoot that ever again... hoping he looks you up...

PS: that shot above? That's my shot! Ya, mine ain't as pretty, but shooting that from there? That was me.

Thanks so much for the kind words! And ok, how about shooting from here? I noticed they did not have the top of the Chinese Theater lit up during this trip. Normally it is a very bright red, during this trip it was just, eh.

Hehehehee... It's okay- you can shoot it, just had to stake my claim!

Have shot it from there too, but again, you do it so much better! I don't know what happened, but your soul has bypassed the mere mechanical laws of photography and blown them away! Please contact Mr Hawking- he might want to discuss this with you...

OOOOo! And that is nice with the Earful Tower on the side there! Nice!!!
