LESS TALK MORE PICTURES!
Always always post lens info after the shots... thanks for mentioning kit lens, but everybody post lens info if you post a pic.

So far, I'm really liking this camera, but I have a lot to learn about it and photography in general. That's actually why I wanted a digital SLR in the first place... I think I'll learn quicker seeing immediate results of different settings instead of waiting for the film to be developed.
Almost forgot... this picture was taken with the kit lens.

Come on, guys! I can't be the only one posting pictures in this thread! I guess I'm going to have to send this camera back and get the d50 so I'll have somebody to talk to!
Just kidding... I really like it and haven't had any trouble adjusting to the small grip. I think, for my purpuses, the small size is going to be a benefit.
Anyway... here's one of my cats (Riley). Looking back, I wish I didn't cut off his butt... but he doesn't sit still for long so I had to snap this one in a hurry. I'm still really new to photoshop, so my skills are pretty limited. I adjusted the curves, darkened part of the background to make his shadow a little less obvious, changed his eye color, and sharpened it. I thought the blue looked better since it's similar to the blue behind his head. (His eyes are really yellowish green.)
As in the other thread (or really "THE thread" since this is "that other thread" ), comments, suggestions, critiques, or whatever are welcome.

CR... yeah I'd like to see more pics too. I could easily have gone Canon on this deal... they have a $100 rebate right now... so it's only $699 WITH A lens at costco!
At this point I'm pretty sure it's gonna' be an N... this time... but I'd like to see my fellow DVX buds showin' off their skills wit da' stills.

I like the image of the cat, but the eyes are throwing the picture off for me.

Maybe, I just think that they distract from the image as a whole, become the absolute focal point, and it doesn't look realistic.
I might adjust the opacity of that layer so that it blends more (whoa, is this me or Rapier typing) or just go back to the original color and then sharpen and slightly lighten them so that they stand out but not as much. As of right now it is just too harsh, in my opinion...

Just as a reference... here's another pic to show his real eye color. This is not an XT photo:
