I got my first SLR today. So I am new to the OT camera crew :wavey::wavey:

I got a XSi and a Canon EF 17-40mm lens. I plan on taking landscapes mostly so that's the reason I got the 17-40. I got the cheap body and the expensive lens so I could kinda grow into it and eventually upgrade to a nicer body.

Anyways, I took a couple pictures with it tonight down by the freeway and this was my favorite.

nice picture. night shots of overpass freeway are always cool. Too bad over here they like to put high fences on the overpasses so no one jumps off...

I thought I was going to fall off. The railing is only like 3 feet high. Some dude went over it on his motorcycle last year and fell to his death :noes::noes:
