...."Hello" to everyone. I am trying again after numerous start/stops, to grasp the technical elements of photography so really nothing to report in terms of equipment owned etc. Two quick comments: TPF is an enjoyable read in its entirety. Further, the designer (or team) responsible for the forum's interface should be highly commended for the job done.For a site associated with photography, the pages here load at exceptional pace. Too often, webmasters et al forget that not everyone has the most recent blazing fibre optic connections to the internet. I am on a (Yikes!) pay-as-you-go dial-up connection for example. Otherwise useful sites often become literally a waste of time to those on the trailing edge of this medium. I am obliged.
