Hi Eric and Cindy,
first of all…great initiative to start this forum. I really hope it will indeed stay free of hate and negativity. Personally I am really looking for improving and pushing my photography to a higher level. And probably I am not the only one out there. Right now I am not (yet) a member of any photo club and don’t have any friends with an interest in photography. Have you thought about how it would be possible to create some sort of photo critique section within this forum that would be of any help to those photographers that feel the need to improve and/or just would like to know what others might think of their photos?
Thanks and regards, Patrick
