Talking Got an SLR camera.

hey guys I finally bought an SLR camera.

I had two choices in mind since they were both the same price
Nikon D300
Canon Rebel XS

I originally went in to buy the Canon. But I went we the Nikon because the guy explained that Nikon has an info feature from the camera itself that explains what each button is, and what is used for to better the picture. I've used it and is really helpful.

Now I need help from you guys, if any of you guys has experince with SLR plz pitch in. I would like to make HDR shots. I have a program called Photomatix, dont know if its any good. Is there any SLR photograph forums where I can gather more help and knowledge?

Here are some pics:

quick tip, for macro pics it not all about how close you get to the subject. you'll get better results if your further away but zoom in more

I bought a macro filter for my Sony Alpha A100. I took a few pics with some dripping faucet water and a El Polo Loco bag. I want to get a true macro lens soon. I like macro photography. It can be cool and abstract.
