Tom, welcome to NPN! So glad you made the leap. I think you will find this to be a very nice platform to learn, meet other photographers, and to display your photos, as well as enjoy seeing some great photos that others have taken. As Ed said, we can learn just as much commenting (because it makes you think before you type) on others as you can receiving comments on your own. Another thing that helps me here, is I keep checking the settings and any other info provided, of images or styles of shots that peak my interest. Enjoy NPN!
