I would suggest you immediately pick up a decent set of "clear protection" or "digital clear protection" filters to protect the glass on the lenses. This is probably the most important item you can buy after the main purchase. Put them on as soon as you open the lens boxes up.
Also, after shooting landscapes for a bit, pick up a Polarizing and Neutral Density filter...remember you get what you pay for with effect filters. I use Hoya or Heliopan.
Congrads and look forward to seeing your work.

Nicely done, Strangelove.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

Thanks for the compliments. For those interested, here is my work flow for these:
Canon 400D, ISO 200, RAW, EF-S 10-22 lens (shot mostly between f/3.0 - f/4.5).
Converted from RAW to JPEG using Lightroom, did some adjustment of fill lights, saturation & hue.

I love my EF-S 10-22, I'll have to try it on cars.

This pic of Sun Trash gets more comments than any of my other pics on Facebook.
Something about it grabs people of a lot of different nationalities, who I'm sure have no idea WTF Sun Trash is.
This is one of the shows I set up remote lighting for, in fact it might have been the first one, which shows how easy it is to get it right.
Here's a link to the comments

I have no idea who they are either, but the shot is awesome. The lighting, the crispness, the pose, the expression, the guitarist's expression... It all comes together really nicely.
