Sounds like a pretty good kit, although a wider angle lens would really make it good. Go to your local camera shops and see if they have any Minolta 10-35mm lenses or something around there.

Well, for landscapes, you'd probably want something wider than a 35mm. The shorter the mm (say 35mm vs 20mm) the wider shot and more stuff you can fit into the shot.

Thanks man tup lenses and such seem to be pretty cheap for the old minolta's, so maybe i will look into it. How do you guys find film for action shots?

Here's the only shot I got from a local race. The track was pretty much just a mud river, but a few of the riders were killing it all day.

I would say use a higher shutter speed, but i'm sure you've thought of that. Check out this for a tutorial on how to do a shutter speed than the camera's sync speed. Check here for more tutorials on it.

thanks. i tried uping my shutter speed and i could never have the flash capture the rider which was pissing me off

i cant find an example because im on my ipod, but how do you get the shots where the object is a blur, like on a road with the car lights or a river, do you just increase shutter speed?

you want to slow the shutter right down to do that and make sure to have a tripod

Like this?
Tripod, and a long shutter speed. So anywhere from second to minutes or hours.
