Selection of photos taken off the coast of New Zealand. All taken with the 18-135mm kit lens, but I have ordered the 50-500mm OS Sigma lens which will be here in a few weeks. Looking forward to the extra zoom and not relying on heavy cropping!

When one is deciding on a DSLR, looking at the pictures the camera is putting out from other photo hobbyists. The range of subjects of pictures posted here are fantastic and the quality of the pictures are top notch. Making a decision to buying my next make DSLR a no brainier.
I like that one! That's why - here are some shots from my last concert-shoot.
High ISO, aweful light, fast moving subjects.
All pictures taken with kit 18-135 and ISO 6400.
I was sweating like hell and had a great time!

Amazing shots, and with the 18-135? I had replaced my Tamron 28-75 with the 18-135 (I wanted the zoom range, AF and WR, and I am on tight budget hence the replacement), but so far I was a bit disappointed. I hope when I learn to use the lens, I can make such beautiful shots!

I really, really don't like bird photos, but I like these two. I wonder what a different crop to the first one would look like getting all of the reflection in the frame? Maybe even into a wider format, even up to 16:9?

I agree - would have been a beaut if I managed to include the whole reflection. I haven't cropped the bottom of the reflection, it was just such a fast reflex shot that it was horribly framed. I'm surprised that the camera managed to focus so quickly, it was taken as the albatross was flying past the boat and I was already fully zoomed in so had no time to adjust.
