This is my first time posting on this site, so excuse anything going wrong with posting photos and the like...

I bought my first DSLR on friday, and took it out on the weekend to get some snaps of my mates on the local MTB track.

Jake excellent photo's! for only a week behind the eyepiece these pictures are great! you look like you have a great deal of experience! those panning shots are spectacular! #3 is a great angle you should apply that more of your pictures. what are you shooting with? (camera/lens)

Ive been into photography for a couple of months now, i only really bought my own camera (instead of having to borrow friends and family's in the last week). Prior to buying my DSLR i did ALOT of research into photography and photographic techniques as well.

I got myself a Pentax K200D with the 18-55mm kit lens. I'm getting a 70-250mm or something similar for Christmas, so i don't have to be practically standing in the middle of the track

I got it mainly because of the dust proofing (i plan on doing a lot of photography on the Bike trails).

I to do most of my shooting of in dusty trails as well i shoot a lot of dirt bikes

(check out my most recent post: http://www.cameralabs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10922 )

shooting with a telephoto is nice and convenient but as you'll see in my post above the best pictures were taken at an ultra wide angle. it gives your picture a really sweet look.

Yeah. I know what you men, but i really think that a telephoto will come in heaps handy, even if i don't end up using it that much.

By the way... i love those MX pics...
