I love my NikonD40. It was extremely valuable piece of equipment to record my travels on the way home from Argentina recently. I’m am convinced that when you know you have a good camera in your hands, you tend to take better pictures. Well, subconsciously I think you do anyway.
I was kinda “chuffed” then, when I got this email from Schmap Guides

Managing Editor, Schmap Guides
After thinking about it for a couple of days I did eventually click on the submit the day of the deadline.
Today, when uploading some new photos to flickr I saw an email from Emma Williams congratulating me on the selection of my photo and details of how it looks in the Schmap Auckland Guide. It also gives me credit for the photo.
And it’s even got an iPhone view!
If you’re interested in taking a closer look at the actual photo you can find it here.
I’m off to learn how to use the Manual mode a bit more!
