I picked up a Canon

I picked up a Canon EOS 300D (Digital Rebel) to help me learn more about photography, one of my favorite hobbies. It’s the first digital SLR that’s been within my budget, and I’ve only just started to play with it. It is more difficult to use than my previous Canon S40 which was a point-and-shoot; but it offers much greater flexibility and higher quality images. Here’s one I took yesterday, with a little touch-up from Photoshop:
WARNING: Clicking the image will open a full resolution JPEG image (6.3 megapixel)!

This is a photo taken yesterday (Oct. 10th, 2003) of the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. The picture itself was taken from the pool bar at the new Mina A’ Salam hotel which is part of the Madinat Jumeirah complex. Photoshop was used to increase contrast a little, run an unsharp mask filter, and add copyright text. You’re free to use this for non-commercial purposes.
I’m also working on a new on-line photo album and should have it ready in the near future.
