Awesome! Is this another shot with the new camera? I like the square-ish comp :)

Yep, this is another shot with the new camera. I'm still getting used to being able to put the ISO & shutter speed at those values and not have the entire picture devoured by grain.

As for its square-ishness, once I started actually editing pictures before posting them I developed a tendency to crop them to 8x10, 5x8, or 4x6 (with 8x10 being the most frequent), as those are the sizes my home printer is best suited to handling.

Aahhh, so jealous of the non-graininess!
That's a good idea for cropping :D

This one was in pretty good lighting conditions, but it seems to be doing well in less favorable conditions too.
