Just wanted to say hello. I should have done this sooner. I'm in my third challenge now and was getting a little discouraged and then I came across this forum and read Joanna's post for newbies. Well done Joanna. I just bought my first DSLR a couple weeks ago and my dad actually told me about about this site with a warning of sharp criticism. My first 2 entries were sub par and the voting showed it. My current entry is doing fairly well and received a few comments that have been very encouraging. I'm looking forward to learning and being challenged to take better photographs. I actually commented on about a dozen pics in fractal and wish I would have read Joanna's post first. All positive but one statement should have been posed as a question and hope I didn't offend even though they marked as helpful. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and seeing more of the amazing photographs.

Welcome, Brian! So glad you found my post helpful. And hopefully you'll have avoided some of the most common issues most newbies encounter. Thought it's often easier said than done, don't get discouraged by meh scores. As you have said, this is a learning site, and scores is just one of many ways to know how you're doing - the most important being whether or not YOU like your shot :-)

Also, don't sweat it about the comments. Just writing them is the best way for you to learn and grow, and everybody wants comments.

Looking forward to your work!

Hi Brian.
Happy to have you here. Don't forget to keep the time and date right in your camera, so that you don't get a DQ on an entry because of it.

Welcome Brian. Don't be afraid to ask questions...but remember Art does bite...or at least his dog Zilla does.

He's already entered 5 of them. That is what you call 'diving' in.
