Herbie, love that pic! Lots of Amish where I grew up. Snapped this on a rainy day a few weeks ago sitting in my turkey hunting blind...long ways to the road. Just wish the power lines weren't there....guess I could photochop them out.





This also was taken during turkey hunting. I was listening for birds and this doe came up the trail. All I had on me was my 70-200 - she was close.








And a buck chowing some clover/alfalfa on a field edge. Again, only my 70-200.

These photos have been wonderful to look at and it has made me realize that my Lumix point and shoot is just not good enough anymore.  I want to get something that is easy to travel with (don't want to look like a Japanese tourist with the huge camera around my neck, NTTAWWT) that will still allow me to take better pictures than the traditional point and shoot.  Thanks

P&S cameras can take very good pictures and I'm given to understand they have finally stopped going for the gazillion megapixels selling point.  If you haven't already you should look at a site like this to familiarize yourself with what is out there. 


Don't take the reviews to heart and just get a good idea of some stuff to check out a camera shop.  I imagine that operating the shutter and zoom while riding will be a base requirement.  Same for a lack of knobs etc. that get turned pulling it out of a jersey pocket.


Maybe someone else will hazard a direct recommendation.

I guess that I should get some type of photography education.  Where did you guys (and girls) learn to take such great photos?

Behind the lens.  I still suck but I've gotten better. It's like anything else, practice.


I've also encountered some good mentors along the way.

What Tim said.
 
If you want to learn to take good pictures, keep a notebook in your pocket and write down the settings (f-stop, shutter speed, ASO) of every picture.  Then, when you look at them later, you can learn what looks good and what doesn't.
 
SHOOT A LOT   I mean like hundreds of shots.  Back when I used film, I would expect one good shot for every other roll.  Digital makes the learning curve much steeper.  Don't worry about post picture processing (Lightroom/photoshop etc) until you get the in camera stuff down.
