Lordje is correct in his assessment of your photographic skills. I've been remiss in not commenting on this last image. It really is very well done.

(if somebody is out there) I think that every morning. Part of my ritual is to check biz emails, the friends and family, then my forums. Football (that's Soccer ) and my 2 main photography ones.

Don't know what's happening to this forum. Steven seems to be almost single handedly keeping the oly board alive.

I gave up posting on the "Post your pics" boards, it seems to have gotten into a clique mode. Last time I posted it was ignored (Lots of hits, no comments...Was it that bad..) except somebody took my title and put their own pics up.

I spend more time on my other forum these days. It's not camera centric and has a pretty friendly attitude.

Shame.
Thank you Ken and sorry for the late reply, I gave this shot a little of color to try something different and I think I really like the results. The color of the water remind me the Caribbean and the city and sky make a great contrast.

Yoi are right about the Oly forum it is alive thanks to Stevenm his great post bring some viewers over there.

I made a commitment for this Summer to start using more my Nikon gear so I'll be posting more often here.

Since you took the time to ask the question, it deserves an answer, at least my view of the situation.
For me, I've stopped looking at most of the photo forums I used to visit and post on. Only exception is Steve's Digicams. This is the place where I first cut my teeth on digital photography and have tried to be keep an eye on what long time forum members are up to.

I find that there are too many internet options that compete for the time I have. Also, social media site's like Facebook has cut deeply into everyone's time-mine included. I try to look at Facebook each morning so I can find out what my kids and grand kids are doing.

As for posting pics, even though I like to look at the ones my friends post, I generally don't comment, reason being, we've been doing this a long time.
You & I know the photo we've posted is a good one. How many times can one post a response like good great or wonderful job without it sounding gratuitous or phony.

I will say that I continue to visit sites like Thom Hogan's or Michael Reichmann's (Luminous Landscape) to read how-to articles on specific styles
of photography as well as the latest and greatest on gear that interest me.

Zig
I totally agree with Zig, I started using Facebook to keep communication with my family and now it is one of my main photo galleries but I like to post my pictures also here to share with you guys.

My morning visit is my to my two emails and answering the ones I don't delete.. Then Facebook. Kids and grandkids in China and New Zealand.

Then the football (sawker ) forum. My team Liverpool had a great season but missed 1st place by a couple of points.

Then Steve's just to see what's going on. I look in now and then at Luminous Landscapes. I can see how you would like this one and it's commercial aspects. One I've been posting in lately is another Photo forum.

Unless we control it time runs away.

Hi Zig: just my 2 cents of opinion. Always enjoy your comments. I am a former Nikon user, but I don't usually visit the Nikon forum, but just happen to be scanning today and caught your post.

However, I would like to differ somewhat with you. I, for one, am always grateful for comments or feedback, no matter how brief. It is kinda like passing a friend on the sidewalk and at least saying "Hello" as you pass by. Just an acknowledgement can be important. It removes any questions about if the photo was actually seen by others, and that it was at least worthy of a comment or criticism. After all, that is one of the functions of any interactive photo forum. There are plenty of picture sites where one can just look at photos, but comments are not solicited. Anyway, as I said, just my 2 cents worth.

A shot from my "humble" D3100... inside a very wet and dark forest (Big Wesh Trail race in Llandegla).
Shot at iso 3200 with my 50mm prime...
I had a carrier bag over my head and the camera- attached with cable ties to the lens hood...
