Thanks for the compliment, Dennis. That photo was taken with a hand-held
Cannon Digital Rebel under relatively low light conditions. The settings
were manual rather than automatic. No special lenses were used - just the
one which came with the camera. I've been very satisfied with what I can do
with this camera. 

I think a bit of luck was involved, too!
