There you go :p

Need to either convert my camera to IR or buy an already converted one, quality is not the best using a phone and a 3"x3" filter held to the lens

Simple tripod works, too. I had an IR filter... never really got into it. Was sure neat, though.

I don't have the EXIF data handy. I did a little bit of work in Lightroom.

Nikon D5100.

I wonder how many of us have the classic "train tracks fading into the DOF distance" shot? :)

Being a longtime Nikon shooter and working for a company that shoots with every Canon product made in the last 10 years, here's what I've found:

1.) Canon has marginally better lenses (in terms of selection, quality and pricing).

2.) Nikon has marginally better bodies (in terms of performance/ease of use).

Because of this, I think Nikon's (marginally) easier to start with.

Similar to Canon's 40D, Nikon has: D5100 D5000 D7000 D90 D300 at various price ranges.

Bottom line: They both get the job done effectively, and you'll likely be happy either way. As Chase said, go play with them in the store if you're stuck.

While I haven't handled as much Canon bodies as much a you, every single model i've used feels "flimsy" and a bit "lesser" construction wise ( 7d, mark II, rebel, xt and xs).

Though on the lens selection, wouldn't nikon have more if you count old F mounts? ( Which do work, just won't autofocus on entry level bodies)? And Canon bodies EF will not mount on EF-S without an adapter?

The bodies seem to be built plenty strong to me. No high-tech equipment is designed to be dropped, though :p

For lens selection, I'm specifically referring to the current line up, but yea old lenses work too.

Nikon's F mount has been around for 50+ years, and Canon's EF mount has been around for over 25 years. I think 25 years is plenty sufficient time to build up a large selection of older lenses. It's very rare for people to use lenses more than 10 years old on mid to upper range bodies (which is what I listed) because the differences in quality will become too apparent. That is, unless you don't care about image quality at a technical level.

The first photo... tell south street officials that they should add "park" to that... so it should display like this: South Park Street.

:-P

The second photo, next time you go to take picture like that, use a tripod because I noticed the car lights go wavy.

Good photos, though.

I need free time to shoot... I'll try shooting more now that I'm getting back into microstock after a long hiatus.

I got it refurbed from B&H for $1599 + grip/extra battery/8gb SD card. Shipped all for under $1975.

EXIF info are pulled from the photo and placed it on the photo via variables... for example: ($d) for date, etc.. Easier for me... That way, I don't have to write them down and then write them on the post all over again.... so the EXIF are already on the photo... save time.
