Nice shots. I really like the 2nd and 3rd ones. An you've got a good website too. Quite an accomplishment for a 17 year old.
I'm want to get into digital photography also, and am wondering what equipment are you using? Camera and lens.
Thanks.

Camera: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi
Zoom Lens: Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 Di LD Macro Zoom Lens
Landscape Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II

I've use this setup since i started and it works well for me. Its not the newest and best gear, but it produces some pretty high quality images.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me.

Thanks for replying. I'm looking to buy a Cannon also. Something in the XS, SXi, T1i, or T2i. I think yours fits in there somewhere. Nice lens, too. I've seen photos from a cheaper Canon xx-300mm on a T2i and they weren't nearly as sharp.
