Default Question about the Nikon forum

Hi everyone - I am relatively new to the Nikon forum as I moved to a D80 last January from a Pentax DL. I hung out in the Pentax forum and posted there. I have only posted here a couple times and have a question?

In the Pentax forum it is fairly common for the community there to post pictures they have taken and I notice that no pictures seem to appear here. Is there a reason for this or have I just happen to hit a slow picture period?

In a way I kind of miss seeing the pictures taken by various Nikon owners. Maybe they are posting them somewhere else on the forum. I know they have a special area for pictures, so is it not advisable to post them in this part of the forum? I hope I didn't offend anyone by asking if this has been discussed before - Bruce

Hey Bruce. I think you'll find a number of Nikon shooters post photos in the genre specific forums - wildlife, people, landscapes, etc. In general the concept is - if you've got a great portrait photo, why not share with everyone? why limit it to just people shooting a dslr of a specific brand? Same thing regarding seeking advice - an Oly shooter can still provide valid input on a landscape photo. Doesn't matter they shoot with a digicam or a dslr of a different brand.

I know the Pentax shooters here have a pretty good social aspect to the pentax forum - but I think you'll find similar aspects in the photo forums from the people that visit them frequently. So I would encourage you to share your photos with those people who appreciate the type of photo it is, regardless of what brand camera helped you make the photo.

Thank you John - That clears it up for me. I have posted on the picture forums before and will continue to do so. It just takes awhile to get use to the new feel of a different forum. I sold all my Pentax gear, so have only Nikon now. The D80 is a terrific camera for me and what I like to do - Bruce

This is mostly a gear forum. Pictures occasionally get posted when asking a specific question, or to demonstrate a point. That is not to say that pics aren't welcome, I just wouldn't expect much feedback. There are plenty of specific forums just for picture sharing, and that is really the best place to share and get feedback.
