You should still be able to get a clear picture with a point and shoot. Sounds more like a technique issue rather than an equipment issue.

This is by no means a good photo but it's not blurry. I took it with my point and shoot a while back before I got my DSLR

I agree. Take your time and hold the camera with both hands.

Photography and cameras are deceiving, just because there is enough light for our eyes doesn't mean there is for the camera, depending on the settings. Using a dslr is a little more difficult because of the changeable lens' and the cost associated with them. Your point and shoot can likely achieve an aperture of f/2.8 which lets a lot of light in but to achieve that with a dslr lens will be fairly expensive (usually) so just getting a dslr isn't going to make photos better. It is understanding the camera, settings and some basic guidelines that make the photos better and similar results can be achieved with a point and shoot.

If I could have purchased a Sony DSC-h9 (point and shoot my brother has) and a circular polarizer filter for it to reduce glare, I wouldn't have bought a dslr.

XSV Klutch, I saw your original post and will respond to that

I would not recommend the canon tripod, the amount of weight it supports is too low and the leg angles are not independently adjustable. You want a tripod that will be stable with your camera (or future body upgrade) and heaviest lens. For easy comparison, a t3i and 70-200mm f/2.8 will weigh about 4.5 lbs. Personally, I'd want a tripod that can hold 7 lbs or more allowing for future growth. Same thing with the tripod head if you buy them separate.
I'm using Manfrotto 190xprob legs and 324rc2 joystick head. I probably should have gone with the 322 head for a little higher weight rating but i'm not close to the limit of the 324 yet. I highly recommend a head with quick release plate. I love the tripod legs, super versatile, each leg can be at a different length and angle and I have used some odd configurations. I prefer the lever/cam leg length release over the screw cap. When it is cold out and my hands are frozen, I'd rather not have to tighten/loosen a screw cap like Giottos or Induro brands.

Yes, CP filters do vary. You get what you pay for...to some extent. I have a 77mm B+W and use step up rings to allow for use on smaller thread lenses (thinking about future lenses too). This way, I only have one CP filter which is expensive but a few cheap step up rings allowing adaptability.

Honestly go on ebay and search for slr kits. I started with a d40. Then just upgraded the body and lenses once i grew out if them.

Youre looking at 1k tops for your first setup. Its all preferance. I like nikon. A d60 would be a great starter.

Just go on ebay or amazon and search for a d60 kit. should come with all you need to get started and itll be enough for a while.

Finally got settled in and went out for my first mountain drive in Co.! I don't usally like wide angle shoots for cars, but this location was asking for it. I do have a couple more that aren't wide, but I still have to edit them.

Enjoying a beautiful Fall morning and scouting out locations for photoshoots with my Monte Carlo:







Not sure if I like these edits better?

Same here. It should be easily to clone or heal that phone pole out since its so close to the trees . It should blend nicely.

Oh, can you do that in Lightroom? I only started using it a few months ago and didn't think you could do cloning.

Can you use layers or well, or is that photoshop-only?

You can't do layers in Lightroom. The clone/heal tool is the circle icon under your histogram. Then you can adjust some settings from there. It works for simple stuff that blends easily. Taking out large objects is very difficult though. I believe Armin touches upon it quickly in one of his videos. Check it out and play around with it.
