Drake - To save space - I like the environmental pictures you took here, but was surprised by the amazon.co.jp figure o.o?
Asuras - India - Nice catches
mikoo - Kyoto - That futon picture made me smirk
Lord Crow - new camera - Where did you find that 3rd picture with the lizard-like face?

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep, Chiang Mai, Thailand. The name of the statue is "Mom" but that's all I know.

Those are really impressive. The lighting and processing is superb - very dramatic and artistic. Nicely done. I've seen a ton of Danbo photography, but these are the most impressive ones I've seen yet.

Really like the second shot RandySyler, I think it would look better if you cropped out the fence/gate =]

I recently tried my hand at HDR with mixed results..

The NEX cameras are fine, but if you want to make comparisons you should also take a look at Olympus and Panasonic cameras (called the 4/3 system - that's "micro four thirds"). I'll admit that I have a 4/3 camera, but I honestly don't feel that either system is far superior than the other. Although 4/3 currently has a lot more lenses, and seems to add new lenses more quickly...

If you want buying advice, give us some more information. What are you currently shooting with? How is it limiting you? What type of photography do you want to do, and why can't you do it with your current equipment? What's your budget?

Probably nowhere near as professional looking as many of the pictures on here, but I took a couple of pictures in Switzerland which I thought were pretty decent.

Read about aperture and focal length on Wikipedia, and see if you can find any websites that simulate the effect of changing either. I know there's one for aperture that illustrates the point quite nicely.

ISO is fundamentally the sensitivity at which your cameras sensor reacts to the light when you open the shutter.

ISO is the number indicating a digital camera sensors sensitivity to light, the higher the sensitivity, the less light is needed to make an exposure. It is very helpful to be able to control ISO when taking pictures.
Also for the curious the term ISO stands for International Organization for Standardization.

Drake gave the basic meaning of ISO - it refers to the light sensitivity of film or your sensor. A higher ISO value indicates higher sensitivity. It can be a bit hard to understand or visualize without fully understanding what goes into an exposure.

In terms of actual usage, ISO and technical limitations around it are important to note. In general, no matter what camera you use, you'll want to use the camera's optimum ISO value. It used to be ISO 100, but on most modern cameras it's ISO 200. At this value the dynamic range (range of light and dark that can be captured) will be greatest, and the noise ("grain" artifacts) will be the lowest. As you increase the ISO, dynamic range decreases (not always significantly) and noise increases.

ISO values have become a marketing point, and many companies - notably Nikon - have pushed the high ISO performance envelope to stunning levels. Simply being able to hit higher numbers is not always better, though. Evaluate high ISO image samples from any cameras you may be considering, and remember that even with high ISO capabilities, you won't want to be making use of it all the time. (Unless you live in a very dark place )
