No pun intended on the thread title. Got a new camera (FINALLY upgraded from that XTi). Been rather busy for a couple years but I finally renewed and I guess that means I'm back. Doubt many really remember me but I think I gave up right around the time Irenem went on her ribbon fest. I'm most known for these two shots.





Anyways time to shoot some pictures!

Anything major happened in the past 2 years? lol... I need to read old forums and see what new rules there are around here.

Nah. Heck, we were all standing around wondering where you went! ;-)

Welcome back!

I love it when people come back :-)

Welcome "home". And congrats on your new gear.

welcome back, nice to meetcha

lets see i've been here two years we've had several "in the style of (member)" challenges that are all worth browsing (sherpet, nixter, bspurgeon and a 'win a posthumous ribbon' among others), there's been a dpl, we just started a wpl, oh, and there's numerous scoring threads where folks complain that their image is under-appreciated and then several that suggest voting changes to the system, that must be totally new right? :)

oh, and art is still quite crazy.

Actually it really has!

I'm now a worship and youth pastor now. Absolutely love my job!

Art is still around and unchanged I see.... :)

I've noticed that the "why did I score low" threads are still around as well.

I believe the sizes changed after I left. I notice the images in challenges look larger. Tasty.

Yes, 800 pixels and 300k for all challenges now. Also, some plugins (Topaz or Nik plugins for example) are now allowed in basic editing, as long as you do not use the selective editing features of those plugins. We are also seeing more expert and minimal editing challenges and a third member challenge that rolls over Thurdsay/Friday (depending on your time zone of course)

Interesting. Looking forward to entering some challenges!

Unless you're just lazy about updating your profile, it looks like you missed it yourself -- I know I did!
