Puttings things into sharp focus

Before my birthday, my old camera (a FujiFilm Pinepix S3000) was starting to die, so my friends very kindly gave me money towards buying a new camera. I found that digital SLRs had gone down in price significantly, and with the money I got for my birthday it was now a viable option for me. As much as I love the convenience of digital, I missed my old SLR film-based camera, especially for the depth of focus it could give me. I bought a Pentax K100D Super, which came with two lenses, an 18-35mm and a 75-300mm. Another feature this camera gives me is the ability to do rapid fire photos, which will come in very handy when I'm shooting kangaroos for Roophilia. I've put up a couple of sample photos to show you what I mean about depth of focus.
