The answer to that question is definitely, "no."
Great, now that my internet connection is back up again, I can post some more photos.
Since I don't have Photoshop or anything like that that I know how to use, I've edited quite a few of my photos by simply using Window's Vista's built-in "fix" feature. I've either just used auto adjust, or when I want to get a different effect, I've turned the contrast up and if the photo gets too bright, I turn the brightness down. That stuff and cropping is all the photo editing I've done so far, but I think some of my shots turned out pretty well.
Oh, one more thing: from now on, I'm only going to put a few of my photos that I think are pretty good on here; more will be on Picasa that I'll link to. There are just too many to put in a post.
I'm working on watermarking my photos right now, but for now you can see the unmarked photos.
Some might say my photos aren't good enough for anyone to take and claim that they shot and they might be right, but at least take a look before making any judgments.

Update: I'm experimenting with watermarks right now, so expect a variety of colors, if not fonts and other stuff. Here's the website with the watermark program I'm using:
It's free for personal use, you can batch watermark multiple photos, and there aren't any nag screens or any other annoying stuff like that.
