    Thanks, If I remember correctly that one was a rocky patel vintage 92

    EDIT: Actually I think that was a Rocky Patel Edge too light for a vintage 92

    Very good cigar. Have you tried the Edges from Rocky. Those have become by far, his most popular cigar to date.

    If you see my edit it actually was the Edge. I love the edge, its definitely a good one, and its very well priced.

    I have a humidor at my house, been empty for a while though. Money has been too tight to stockpile.

    The night shots were all taken with a tripod, so like I said definitely invest in a good tripod, actually the funny thing was that my favorite one (with the lights blurred downtown) is the only one that was not taken with a tripod. I left my tripod at home on that trip and found a concrete pillar for that one. 20 second exposure, it worked great!

    Well, this thread is KINDA about shots that I took as I learned my camera, I'm really easy to get along with so if you want to keep it here ill let you, but the focus is supposed to be my pics, anyways I forget my tripod brand off the top of my head, I inherited it from my grandpa when he passed away. He was a huge wildlife photographer.

    If you want to save some bucks, you could google Feisol or Benro for tripods. They are chinese carbon fiber knock-offs of the big boys like Gitzo.
