Hi guys, First let me say what an awesome forum you
have here, I've bee loitering for about a week now
trying to gather the courage to join your elete
band of photographers, but every time I looked in
the gallerys I took cold feet.
Anyway I finally gathered the courage and here I am.
I currently own a Fugi Finepix S7000 That I love taking
pics of my tropical fish with, I also like portraits,
landscapes and taking pics of my flowers.
Although IMO my pics are not bad, they can be improved
on a lot, especially my macro images, so I have come to
you guys looking for help.
I am also thinking of upgrading to a dslr with a macro
lense, although which one I have no idea so i'll be
seeking help on the forum as well on that issue,
if thats ok?
Ok enough rambling from me, congrats again on
your wonderful site, I hope to meet some of you
on the boards.
Regards Michael

Welcome to EPZ Michael, you've 'plunged' into the forum, how's about uploading an image too!! There's a great deal of knowledge here and you'll get help if you ask.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys, much appreciated.
Do I upload a picture for critique?
or do I just upload to the main Gallery? thanks.
Hello Michael and welcome to the forum. I'm newish as well and the site is fantastic.
Plenty of inspiration from other photographers on here and loads of topics to help you out and learn from.
Enjoy your stay.

That depends entirely on what you want conaquavict.

If you want people to 'critique' ie.suggest how this could be better, then upload to the CG.

In the main gallery, people also give advice, but they can also vote for your image.. there are NO votes in the critique gallery ...it's really for advice only. so your call... you can upload one image a day to the main gallery but only one image a week to the Critique Gallery.
