Still my favourite shot with 350D which I'm still using - been torn apart between 60D and 7D for so long now (but also broke):

Also used are Sigma 10mm 2.8 and two slave 430ex flashes.

Taken back in my P&S days.  I know it's a Canon forum, but this was taken with a Nikon Coolpix 4500.  A 4mp camera.  This was back around 2003 or 2004 - before I knew ANYTHING about composition at all - I should never have cropped it like I did.

Horrible Photo with my old 20D w/ 18-55 f3.5-5.6 Lens.  Camera and Lens almost as old as door...I think both can be had for under 300 dollars

Nothing wrong with that shot chief.
It doesn't matter where you start, it's where you finish.  All that counts is the photograph.

Not so much old as not bang up to date. 550D is still a current model in the UK.

This photo is of a celebration parade. It seemed that the whole city turned out to congratulate their local football team on winning the FA Trophy (non League premier honour) and attaining promotion back into the Football League at Wembley Stadium over two successive weekends this May.

I shot the original in RAW and converted to TIFF but it has lost a bit of resolution here as I've had to resize and convert to JPEG to upload it here as the file was massive. I used my 28-135mm lens.

Haha you consider that lens to be 'old cheap gear' ?  ;)
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.
