    Hi

    Have spent a while looking for a good forum where people talk about photography. I have been popping in here for the last few days and it seems to be a nice ole place, with you all helping each other out with all things photography.

    I'm a newbie bought myself a fuji s7000 to celebrate quitting smoking :).

    I have had lots of fun with the camera taking some nice pics along the way too. Saving up for my next camera now as the restrictions of the fuji become apparent the more I get into this photography lark.

    Anyway enough ramblings, just thought I would say hi and introduce myself :)

    Theres a link below to a few of my pics, your comments are most welcome

    Cheers

    Simon

    Welcome Simon:)

    A good bunch of people here, it's a small forum and in a way that's a good thing. Feel free to upload images here for sharing. We also have a critique section if you'd like any advice or opinions on your shots feel free to post there.

    Mixed bunch here, all kinds of camera users and NO snobs.

    Enter the comp, there's plenty of time. We have a different theme every month and this months theme is "Strange"


    Once again welcome, and thanks for joining us

    Sean

    Some nice pictures on your web pages. Some look like they could do with the levels tweaking a bit.

    I liked 'teasel' . The large version is spoilt a bit though because you can see sharpening artifacts all around the outline.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Except for those with L lenses and those with Nikon DSLRs :D

    Welcome to the forum. Had a look at your site, I think the one called Sywell Tower is my favourite, I quite like the symetry of the composition. Some other promising shots there too.
