UPDATE: ALL CANON IMAGES ARE WELCOME. (not just XT)
Originally, this thread was started to see examples of photos taken with the Rebel XT, but was later changed to include all Canons.
Original opening post:
In my first thread asking for more Nikon vs Canon advice, a couple members suggested a Rebel XT equivalent to the Nikon D50 user thread. So, here it is. I was hesitant to post this since I'm a new member and don't have anything to contribute (yet), but I'm really interested in seeing your images (and it seems a few others are too).
So have at it... post your pics and any other info you care to share (lens you used, post processing, etc)... anything XT related is fair game.

while this is a fun thread i would take what you get with caution. i mean you have no idea what set up any of the images were captured in or to what degree they were manipulated. a simple photoshop tweak will make much more of a difference than a small discrepancy between each camera's performance. of course if you want a slightly more quantitative approach then you can look on sites such as dpreview.. that will probably give you the best side by side comparisons. but i really think that viewing a random slew of photos originating from infinitely differing shooting conditions, lighting, post processing isn't at all a good way to choose a camera... all of the above factors will far overshadow any little differences between the cameras themselves. i guarantee that if you see photos you like, the results can be attributed 99.9% to the photographer and not to the camera he/she used. but then again you probably already know this. granted i know you want to get the best for you hard earned money, but there are better methods to choosing in my opinion. on a lighter note this (along with the d50 thread) is a great way to see just what others are coming up with!

i agree 100% that PS is the darkroom and it really is a necessity. i also agree that the d50 thread has just as mush PS work too.. in fact my comments were aimed to illustrate this exact point: both threads have image manipulations (among other variables not controlled for) therefore using this as a basis for testing "which camera is better" isn't a reliable test by any means.
and again my comment still stands regarding that it is a great way to see what others are coming up with. so many people use the same or almost identical equipment, yet yield results that are so vastly different!

Boy is correct that I set this up to sort of "level the playing field". I agree, it's not an accurate way to see which camera is better and thank you for pointing it out to those that might not realize that.
The main reason I set it up was to see what dvxusers could come up with using the XT. I've seen other d50 and xt photos that weren't nearly as impressive as some of those in the d50 thread. It's a little hard not to be swayed toward whatever camera they are using (especially since I was already on the fence). So, I thought this thread would be a good idea to show exactly what you're saying... that it's not necessarily the camera, but the skills of the members here. I fully expect to see images just as impressive in this thread. (So, bring 'em on!) If such a thread existed before, I probably wouldn't have second-guessed my original decision.
Looking at dpchallenge convinced me that both camera produce awesome pictures (in the right hands).
