finally got my birthday prezzi

OK, so my birthday was in May but like a good little girl I saved my pennies and added a few more and treated myself yesterday to a new camera to replace my aging Fuji z something that has been dropped and generally abused over the years- it was only 3 meg pixel but served me exceptionally well. I use a small compact when on the bike but wanted something with a bit more oomph for bike racing and days out.

looking at my first attempt with my new Canon, I think I'm going to have some fun :-) ( no editing, cropping just compressed slightly to make it quicker to upload) click to see detail.

Wow! that looks really great close up, doesn't it? Which Canon did you go for? (only cos' I'm thinking along those lines myself).
