Welcome, Len!

It's not about the gadgets, it's what you do with them that counts! One of the nice things about this place is it's not about endlessly talking about gear, the focus is clearly on the pictures. No one cares whether it was taken on a top of the range ultra modern digital camera, or an old Brownie, as long as the images are compelling...

And if you're not sure about something, do feel free to ask and the more experienced here will surely help you out.
