This website might be useful for you Craig:
It's a photography forum where you can post up any questions you have and get an idea of how good some of these guys are as well as ideas for your own photography. I think it's a good idea to see what some other people do sometimes and go out and do the same thing yourself to add techniques etc to your photography.
I've been slack since getting the 40D, I've taken lots of photos but I haven't really tried to push myself to get better. I've spent a lot of hours today on this website though looking at shots and lenses (which is dangerous as I'm now considering getting a couple in the next 2-3 months which will cost me about $2000 all up. Will cover my needs for a little while though I think). Talking about spending this much on lenses makes me feel a bit like the golfers I used to see and mock at the club who had expensive clubs and no talent
I would like to know how some people get the rich colours etc in some of their shots. Is it through filters or mucking about post-production to get things right.
