For an untrained “enthusiast” the ability to put my images out there and get feedback can be a little daunting. Not that I don’t have thick skin but it’s nice to get comments from other photographers.
I now feel more creatively empowered than any time in my life. It’s a wonderful combination of great tools and technology that I really relate to. And the feedback from the online community of photographers is such an amazing resource to be able to learn from.
In the end this feedback and exchange of ideas can only improve all photography.
