Welcome to the forum Codiac. I'm just "down the hall" from you in Ohio! Looking forward to seeing lots of bird pictures from you.

Thank you Vievetrick, I saw that I could make my own so I did and all that I have from current K10D shots, besides nightclubs and bars have been birds and squirrels (not much else going on here) so I went with birds that we see here. By the way I'm a graphics art major and love to tinker so I thought it be proper to create my own with some images I've taken and my father really enjoyed those two (he got me into photography when I was 8 when he handed me an ME super).

O HI O! lol, yes birds will be a big focus since all I have here are trees, parks with trees, roads with trees, and trees with trees and nothing really lives in trees cept birds and squirrels lol. I'll have plenty of flower pictures this spring as well since my mother tends to grow hundred of different plants including orchids, roses, and lillies?! Maybe if you're close enough to the border we'll meet up in an area somewhere in the middle and take some pics, always game for something new to see.

Less than 2 hours unless you hit construction... ok so like a little over 2 hours because there is always construction between Rockford and Chicago. Let me know and maybe I cna make some time here in the near future. Too bad we didn't figure this out sooner because I have the entire day off today after about 2pm and there is plenty of shooting time after that.

BTW whats the hot item to shoot in Zion? Never been there but I do hit Chicago when I get the chance, but find buildings and cars something a bit too blah for me because I've had a very hard time composing in such situations and have always been to afraid to take pictures of people in fear that I shall have my camera pummeled

Check here, PRATToGRAPHIC's photosets on Flickr That's pretty much all there is to shoot in my area. I haven't had a chance to walk chicago and get some shots yet. All shots I've been getting have been from car.

I don't really have a favorite subject to shoot. I'm more of a "whatever catches my eye" type of shooter. What do you have to shoot out in Rockford. One good thing about my area are the beaches.

Very good work, definitely an eye for things you do have... I hate the english language LMAO. See beaches is something I need to go out and shoot so I guess one day this year I'm heading out towards your way unless I have a better beach shooting oppurtunity. Here it's all wildlife, parks upon parks and tons of gardens and such. Well hopefully one day we'll have a chance to hit the field together and compare notes.

Yeah, lots of wildlife areas out my way too. That's why I'd like to hit the city, and maybe even milwaukee and get some Urban life shots. Just let me know when you'd like to go out. We could either meet in the city, or If you'd like to check out my area to shoot.

Sounds like a plan and by the way Milwaukee is awesome plus the zoo is very nice indeed. I'm planning another trip to the Miller Brewing plant this year in Milwaukee so maybe when I know when I'm goin gwe can set something up and hit the city.
