Glad to be here!

This is my first post in this forum. I've lurked here in the past, and am greatly impressed with the general friendliness and helpful nature of the folks who post here.

I'm a landscape/outdoor photographer with a pretty extensive body of work that you can check out at my website, if you're interested.

My main gear concerns always come back to getting the best resolution of detail and sharpness (that will hold up in 24x30" prints) with the kind of user friendliness and ergonomics that Pentax equipment has always seemed to provide for me (and I have used many other brands in the past).

I'm no snob when it comes to gear that gets the job done.

I'm excited to see the most recent offerings from Pentax and I am hoping they follow through on what seems to be a renewed commitment to quality professional-level bodies and optics.

I'd also like to thank your frequent poster here, Benjikan, as his advice and particularly his unselfish sharing of PS post-processing techniques has been of great help to me. Thanks, Benjamin. I'm hoping I can return the favor sometime.

Glad to be here, and I hope you'll welcome me.

GeoffreyS! Welcome, as a new member myself... you in a good place.

Your work is truly inspiring. I particularly love your Rock and Sand series. You use line like a choreographer. Beautiful movement in all of your work.

Really glad to have you hear and looking forward to seeing more.
