    that's a good try :)
    maybe you can try to keep your ISO value low (100 or 200) and raising your aparture time (the time that your lens is open) , let's say till 3 seconds.
    you'll need a statue (or whatever it's called) but you won't get the noise and a beautiful effect :)

    Ihave a few i would like to show, but will post only 1 at a time....

    This was taken at a bike race, where i ruined every picture due to camera shake. I quite liked the composition of this one, so added the speedo, watch and flag in photopaint.

    This is a picture of my friends daughter, and was just an experiment in photopaint manipulation, adding 2 images together.

    I am by no means a professional photographer, but I like how these two turned out. I took them both on two seperate snowmobiling trips last winter.

    Well, here is my first shot that I've actually sat down and finalized off of my spanking new 20D that I got yesterday night (damn you UPS and your always delivering @ 5 pm, no matter what). My first foray into the digital world, I am used to shooting slides and having to wait for 3 days to get them back, so this is pretty amazing what I can do now, being able to run to the computer right away and start processing.

    WARNING large File

    For your information, it is a Daddy long legs on an Alchemilla Mollis, with morning dew. The only thing i don't like about this shot is the fact that I had to alter the highlight levels on the dew, which produced some bad noise.

    This is from my summer in Africa last year. 'tis a vervet monkey. In a tree. Shot with Eos 3, 100-400 4.5-5.6 IS L USM and Fujifilm Velvia.

    AHHHH!!!, that's the eiffel tower, not a pointy thing.

    And yes, CS2 does rock. And I wish I had been able to affor the 10-22 as well, due to the fact that my 17-40 L USM is now just a normal wide instead of the ultra wide it used to be. I guess I'll still have to shoot film for ultra wide photos.

    Here's my contribution using the Canon 350D/XT and Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 XR Di Lens:

    Focal Length 75 mm
    Exposure Time 1/500 sec
    Aperture f/6.3
    ISO Equivalent 100
    Exposure Bias -2/3

    [​IMG]

    or this one using my Sigma 18-125mm Lens:

    Focal Length 125 mm
    Exposure Time 1/50 sec
    Aperture f/16
    ISO Equivalent 200

    Here's another I took today. It's a woodpecker, not sure of the exact species.

    Canon Eos 20D
    EF 100-400mm L IS USM @ 400 (which equals 640 due to the sensor size. A 600 mm 4.0 L IS USM lens would have cost over $8000, and while it would be slightly faster, being able to use ISO 200 (exact same noise as ISO 100, so no reason not to) gives me the equivalent. :)

    shrapnel22 I'm jealous you having the EF 100-400mm L IS USM. Is that shot handheld or on a Tripod?

    That would be on a monopod. Possibly the best invention EVER, as they give a heck of a lot of stability, as well as being extremely portable and light, making it much easier to take on a walk/hike, and you can get some that double as hiking staffs as well.
    Definately a good investment if you are using telephoto alot. It makes panning incredibly smooth and easy as well. My percentage of sharp shots would be decreased probably 10 fold if I didn't use some sort of extra stabilization. Image Stabilizer helps, but at those focal lengths, handholding is not the way to go. And I have incredibly shaky hands (ie couldn't hold my hand still if my life depended on it, and NO it is not caffeine or any stimulant), which is why 99% of the time I use a monopod. I rarely use a tripod with a large lens, as I'm usually packing up to go ever five minutes, as where I live, the birds and wildlife are very jumpy, so I need to be able to set up instantly (you can just leave a monopod on the lens if you have a tripod collar).

    Here's another. And it's actually a Northern Flicker.


    And by the way, what is the flower in that first picture bluedog, as it is very cool. Excellent pic as well.
