It's actually pretty embarrassing to look at the shots I made with the first DSLR I had - the Nikon D70 which wasn't actually mine but belonged to the newspaper I am working in (as I was back then, in late '05 - early '06). However, among the sea of junk - that has thankfully been largely destroyed by me later when tidying up the archive - there are a few decently sharp pictures. Some even tell a story (or are trying to).
Ice sculpture festival outside the State Hermitage (10 Jan 2006)
Bitter cold out on river Neva (19 Jan 2006 - pardon all the dirt!)
Historical reenactment (World War II) - 28 Jan 2006
Riding on thin ice (2 Mar 2006)
Before long, I got my own DSLR - a then-state-of-the-art KM 7D. Not that it helped my pictures much in itself - but I started getting better lenses (the Nikon D70 had two bargain bin Sigmas as companions - an 18-50/3.5-5.6 and a 28-300/3.5-6.3; they were generally not terribly sharp). Here's one of the first shots (of the ones that I kept, anyways) made with the 7D (30 Mar 2006):
