Default Many Thanks Fellow Pentaxians

Hi all! I first joined this forum back in 2010. One of the first photos, if not THE first photo, is the photo below, though I have revamped this photo with Topaz Simplify... The original photo, well you could see the detail of every tiny birch leave... and I was so green myself to Digital Photography... the original also suffered from oversharpening, etc., etc. ... ANYWAY!!! I still enjoy using my Pentax K7, and I enjoy Steve's DIGICAM's Pentax Forum. I just wanted to say THANKS for all the advice and encouragement I have received from you all. I still have much to learn, but everything I learn is just a lot of fun.

All the best.

Ned in Finland

I couldn't agree more, what a wonderful place to visit, not just for the help but also to see other parts of the world from the perspective of people who enjoy the same hobby and equipment.

My first thought was that I was going to read that you were moving on, getting rid of your K7. It was very refreshing to see that wasn't the case! I would miss you, I've always loved your photos.

And I do remember this one very well. I like the effect you achieved with Simplify, it adds to this particular shot. I'm not always a fan of some of the more extreme processing things, but they can be really useful sometimes. This shot lends itself particularly well to this method. Wonderful job!

Hi Harriet. Thanks for your words. No, certainly not moving on... reading your comments, it didn't come to my mind at the moment, but I can see how one might think that. Sorry to cause any alarm. But is just the opposite. I am having a lot of fun with my K7... and being in this forum has really meant a lot. I don't have anyone to speak to in English about Photography, so my thankful for this group means more and is not something I ever want to take for granted. Just have learned a lot and enjoy. Thanks again for our kind words indeed. Ned

I also misunderstood the title of this thread and thought you were planning to move on. I agree completely with your sentiments. I have learned a tremendous amount from the people here.

I too have found this site and the Pentax group in particular to be a great source of information and help. It is also nice to be able to 'travel' to many places around the world when looking at the photos that are posted.

Regards
