Am I allowed to post a photo that came from a non-T2i camera?

It isn't from anything better (Canon S95) (ie it's not like I'd be posting anything from a full frame camera), but it is one I took literally a few days before getting my T2i...

I don't think the shot will be any competition to what is up, but I more just want to put it out there.

If not I completely understand! Seeing how this is a dedicated T2i forum and all :)

Consider just throwing it out on to the Share Your Photo thread.  That way it wouldn't be in a contest thread but we would still all be able to view it! (I look forward to seeing it actually!)
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?

That was my other thought :) I'll do that now.

I can not believe how crappy my blue time has been since I posted this. :(
I'm an old film guy just playing catchup in this digital world. Help me out.

@Skippy,

My work schedule is crazy at the moment. I don't think I'll have a chance to get out during blue hour to take any new shots, so can I dredge up a shot I took a while ago?

How the hell did we drop this one. These are great shots and ones that I would love to see more of.

  • Where's the autozoom button?!
I know the contest is probably over already and I wouldn't enter this shot anyway but since I haven't been able to get out around the blue hour for pics I had to improvise. Shot this at 60MPH from the car on the way through our downtown area.

One time, this guy handed me a picture of him, he said,"Here's a picture of me when I was younger." Every picture is of you when you were younger. "Here's a picture of me when I'm older." How'd you pull that off? Lemme see that camera... what's it look like? -Mitch Hedberg

Yea, it's technically over but this is as good of a place to post one as any.  It made me realize that I STILL haven't tried a Blue Hour photo yet so I need to get off my lazy ass and get out there to try it!
Nice shot, btw!

This contest is never over until we just get that one shot that we all just say that we can not out do. This is the launching spot for Blue Hour shots.

Thanks!  Wife kept asking, "Aren't you done yet?"  I kept taking one every 15 minutes.
