In August '06, we moved to "up state" NY (yeah almost to the middle, but over near CT). Spent first 46yrs in N & E TX. Then one year in Portland, OR was more than enough.
My parents surprised me with a camera in July! "At least you'll have something to fill in the gap until you can afford a real one in about a year." From my dad's lips to God's ears!
I still usually only critique composition. Drop a note if you want my opinion.
Many photographers watch the Critique Forum. Always, for best results, submit your photo in the Forum & ask for specific info.
Anything else you might want to know is on my web site.
Enjoy, Have fun,
