For this image you could play more with the textures. If you did this as a B&W image with higher contrast the water could become much more interesting.

Also I would crop out the branches to the left, the tree is cropped partially which leads to a "chopped off look". When doing a crop or framing it is good to look at the edges and see if it looks natural.

That's a receeding fog bank, I wanted it to add to the shot, not detract. I agree it doesn't accomplish what I wanted.

Nope, I went for the Sigma 50mm F2.8 which is a great lens and pretty cheap (I have used it more than any other lens in my work) but any prime macro lens now will be sharp so you don't have much to worry about.

I was going for a candid shot here, ISO:200, F/9, 1/100, direct flash, Canon 18-120mm L, really just trying to capture the essence of the moment.

Many of my images were made with a 6MP D50 including one I had on display at a museum show so don't worry.

The jump from 12 to 10 is not that big anyways, as for which camera to recommend what types of photos do you plan to take? Low light? Action? Landscapes? Etc.

:lol3

Worthy of a gallery show :thumb

(Actually if I saw a set of photos like this in a gallery it wouldn't shock me a bit, old school snap shot feel with that type of subject....welcome to the art world.)
