I recently acquired a Canon Power Shot SX40 HS with the built in 35X optical, 24-840mm equivalent zoom lens. I took it out in the backyard one night to try it out and took the attached photo, hand held, using the automatic settings, not too bad for a point and shoot. It surprised me. Not much in the way of skills on my part, just a nice camera. I suspect it would have been clearer if I'd used a tripod.
Some more great photos here! Those Alaska photos are really making me itch to go there.
I spent the last four days visiting Yellowstone National Park. I passed through the Grand Teton National Park on my way there (stayed in Jackson over night). Here are a few photos taken with my new D600 and 50mm F1.8 G lens. It was very smoky most of the day, but I got a decent shot earlier in the morning.
These were converted using the Nikon software. I'm not familiar with it and it is very limiting compared to Adobe's Camera Raw, so I didn't do hardly any post processing as I usually would. I can't wait for ACR to update for the D600, these images would be much better.

As a side note, I LOVE this D600! Images at 100% are outstanding in detail and sharpness, even at 200% there is really no noise and very little loss of detail.
I'm really going to like using this camera.
