April Fools Day was not a joke for us - 18 Month Anniversary!
It has been 18 months since this group started on April Fools Day. Since that time we have become one of the most active groups on fStoppers. This is due to the contributions of many new and experienced photographers. Our type of work is not the main focus of fStoppers, but we have found a home here. And, quite of few of our members have had a Photo of the Day and many Editor's Picks. Well done group!
The main reason that this group thrives is that the members participate in the discussions. I encourage those of you who are new to comment on the work of the other members. You don't have to be an expert to provide feedback. Your opinions and suggestions are welcome regardless of the level of experience behind them.
I also encourage you to participate in the dialog as this is the way you learn. Analyzing images and coming up with suggestions is an important skill that will help advance your own work as well as that of the team.
Lastly, I encourage you to participate in dialog because it keeps the pace of the group moving. If you post and wait for comments on your work without commenting on others' posts, the group pace slows. Also, those providing feedback to you would appreciate feedback from you as well.
As we pass this 18 months landmark, let's keep this great group healthy and helpful! by continuing to post our experiments and success AND contributing our thoughts and knowledge as well.
Thanks again to all of you who have made this group a success!
