last of three pictures, was worth the effort for the learning curve, 3 different lens for the same or similar shot's, i've come to a definate conclusion that setting on auto's on a point and shoot can only give a standard range of images, just for the one fact alone of focus and apature... so DSLR's really do offer a greater 'control' on the image's you want to do (other than snap shots).
It's not untill the procesing that you'll see what you see, and it isnt untill you see 'it' that'll you'll realise, as as far as 'art' goes, or the 'art of'....a DSLR every time.
Auto's are handy but.....you cant beet actualy learning a skill.
