testing the new camera

my new camera just came in yesterday, and so far i have to say i'm quite impressed. canon's image stabilization is pretty much awesome; the only blurry picture i've taken so far is of a sprinkler hard at work, and i think that was just because the camera didn't know what to focus on. here are some of my favorites:

once i get a better idea of what constitutes a "good" shot, the canon s3 IS should be able to do the rest for me.
