Don't know, Farmer, because I haven't seen a picture by Terry since I guess about the beginning of time.

Then you haven't been paying attention.  Terry is a frequent poster here, and in his images we see both his skills as a photographer and as a communicator.

My beef, Graeme, is that most people posting on LuLa aren't posting things that gave them an emotional jolt. They're just showing they were there.
This one of my cat  gives me an emotional jolt every time I see it.  In fact, it's posted on my fridge.  I shoot a lot of cat pictures and this one, frankly, I find rather engaging, even if I did shoot it with my phone. So there.

That's because there's absolutely nothing funny about him.

Mark has been working hard on the review.  I'm sure he will respond but we are very close to having it ready.  There is a lot of work that goes into a review and especially one with so many technical aspects. Mark is very thorough and has been working with Epson on some of the aspects of this review making sure we share accurate information.  You'll see the review here as soon as it is ready.

Russ - you're not really providing feedback, you're providing an opinion.  In the rare instances that I've posted photos here, I've been give very good feedback and critique - information that helped me learn.  Not a general "you shouldn't post that here".  I'm always happy to receive feedback, positive or negative, so long as it's constructive.  Even if I don't like what's being said, it has value.

Also, in terms of "being there", isn't the old PJ axiom "F8 and be there"?

When I was a kid in the 70s and 80s, travelling around parts of Australia that to this day few people have been, just "being there" and recording it had, and retains, significant value.  The old slides mostly taken by my dad, but plenty also by my mum and even the odd one by me.  They have value.

"Being there" is a conditio sine qua non* in photography. F/8 is optional. The point is to rise above the mere presence. As one jury member once put it (about my submission): "opportunistic shot - you were there, you clicked." It stung (my ego).

* This is just to irritate Jeff, who thinks that certain voters need a translation from words with Latin roots ;)

Ah.  Hence the increasing popularity of drones.

Personally, I'd put a comma & some quotation marks, just to clarify things

An old adage comes to mind: just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

P.S. Taos pic is good.

Thank you.  I was there, so I shot it ;)
