For the 13th year.

I can, and have multiple times gone on about how much I love this place, how much it means to me, and what I've received from this site and its community.

I'll spare ya!

Immeasurable gifts.

Vivi and I are happily doing well with our gallery, and I've actually decided to start teaching.

And that's kind of a funny thing.

One of the most important things I have learned here isn't something you get from standard photography classes.

What I hope to do is predominantly take people new to photography who have no aspirations toward a career, but who like photography and just want help and guidance to take better shots.

I want to work with them to help them utilize their camera, and their vision to create the images they want.

What has helped me the most is the feedback that I've gotten from this community that has allowed me to work toward expressing how I see things when I shoot them.

Because there is such a wide and varied array of education, talent, and experience here, it's quite clear that what a photographer wants and needs is the ability to take his camera and get the shor he intends.

After the help and guidance I've gotten over the years, and some hard work and determination, I can do that.

Something tells me that I may be assigning challenges for homework!

I'm gonna be around for the duration.

The best $25 a year I spend.

Been here since 2002. Decided to print a hard copy of the User Profile page with the pictures (870) I have entered, the scores, comments, etc in landscape format Just to have a printed back up. 10 pictures to a page. I must be crazy, but I did it anyway. Ended up with 91 pages of DPC entries!!! Guess I must like it here:)

I've popped on here and there the past few years. Found this site back in Aug 2002 and had just bought a cheap digital and entered my first challenge. I ended up getting like 3rd from last place. The comments were very constructive and about 9 months later I ended getting 1st place for a challenge. This website helped me a ton learning how. The past few months I've been really thinking about photography and feeling the need to get back into it. I've just felt lately that it's been too long and I've forgotten lots of the things I learned back then. I just need to jump back into photography and this was the place I went to first.
