Jacques, I'm walking my way though the intricacies of the forum functions and when I replied to your comment I thought it was directed to me. No doubt my reply to you did not make much sense.
I went to your gallery and spent a significant amount of time viewing your pictures. I was really impressed. As a novice my opinion should not mean much but, I know what I like and realize quality when I see it. I met a professional photographer this past Christmas who passed on some advice to me i.e. even though learning the technicalities of taking pictures is very important it is secondary to composing a picture. Seeing your pictures really re-enforces his advice. I'm 68 years old and can only hope I can produce a few like yours.
