    Tripod suggestions

    I am keen to get a tripod soon - want to do some slow shutter speed shots (waterfall, traffic, night sky and so on when I am in KZN). There is quite a bit of debate about what to get! What should I realistically be spending if I want a good stable tripod? I don't want to waste money and buy...

    Post-processing Photos: how do you ladies and gents do it?

    Which software do you use? I am not sure whether I should use Nikon Capture NX-D with Gimp, or the Adobe Photography package for $10 with photoshop, lightroom, and 20gigs worth of storage.
