Q: My sister in-law recently gave me a Canon EOS 10D digital camera body. Having only used point and shoot cameras, what would be a good beginners lens to get for this camera? Should I get kit lens to start with?

A: Do you know?

    I love this! It's a fun photo, the ducks are colorful and they race their little hearts out in an effort to win (they're very competitive, you know). I would have enjoyed being there for the race. They also do this in the Penobscot River, starting just above Bangor. Quite a fundraiser it is!! Great collage, John.

    The last duck out of that box has a real disadvantage. Can't wait to see what's at the finish line. Nice series.

    This it totally incredible John. I would love to be in the water or in an anchored boat, under the bridge on the right, shooting through the ducks as the rained down. it would be interesting to see their various positions, and the individual isolated motion at that density...also the change as they began to unpack. A rapid series of strait down shots would be pretty cool also. This is an amazing contrast. This is also amazing from a standpoint of things people do...fantastic!
