Can you finally tell me which DSLR you use?

It's not the camera. Any entry level DSLR can take pictures that look like that. PhillyB happens to have a solid eye for photography. That's the difference

i purchased a sony NEX-5 in 2011 and it's perfect for what i do. entry-level DSLR, sony's release (minolta tech) onto the compact DSLR market and it pretty much blew everything else away. i don't like carrying a separate camera bag around when i travel, but i do carry a satchel with me whenever i'm out (in a foreign country) that has stuff like my passport and IDL in it, so i'm able to just keep it in there because it's so small (picture a large smartphone with a detachable lens) and i can pop it out on a moment's notice if i see something i want to shoot. there are much better options if you want to do any serious shooting, but for what i do this thing is absolutely perfect. best $400 i've ever spent in my life.

but zod is dead on. learn how to properly compose a photograph and that'll do far more than any expensive DSLR money can buy you. i always recommend people to an intro to art class if they're interested in photography... learning age old techniques of composition, layering, subjects, etc. is going to do a lot for the quality of your final product.

if you do (and you should) let me know beforehand if it's an international flight and you're flexible and i can probably find rock bottom airfare prices for you
