Welcome to all 1st posters

Wanted to say Hello & Welcome to all the 1st time posters.
There are so many of you, due to house cleaning, I thought I'd say "Hi" with this post, rather than individually.
Hope you all enjoy the forum and hope to see more posts from you in the future

Thanks. Yes, we're all coming out of the woodwork today!

The reason I first posted today was because I did not want to lose access to the knowledge, wit and expertise of such a fine bunch of people that inhabit Pentax Forums. Initially I lurked because I wasn't confident in my photography skills after seeing some fantastic photos on this site. After that, I guess lurking became a habit!

I hope that Pentax executive lurkers will also check-in. It would be great to start a dialogue with them.

As the proud owner of a K10 and enough add-ons to send my wife into a tail-spin I appreciate the good work that Pentax Forums are doing for the Pentax community. A big pat on the back from me.

As you can see, long time member, first time poster.

You're not the only one who has that reaction. I know just how you feel There are some stunningly accomplished photographers posting to this forum. Funny thing: I've seen a comment from someone who posts beautiful photos that he, too feels/felt nervous about posting his work because of the quality of other posters' photos.

I've posted a few photos here that were really not very good. Nobody got nasty. The comments were positive. I haven't seen any nasty stuff here. So gird your loins and go for it

Sounds like the story of Gollum... Luckily Mithrandir himself is here to help out...

Daz... Great idea. I was feeling overwhelmed at the thought of welcoming each person individually (though I'm sure James will accomplish this - placidly too), so I'm gonna glom on to your post and say Welcome to everyone who came out of the woodwork today. Post up some photos!

Richard.
The lack of nastiness and personal attacks is something I haven't seen here either. That's what makes this such a good site.

Just off to Wikipedia to find out how to gird loins.

Great idea, Daz. Can I piggyback and add my warm wishes to all new members of the family? You're very welcome and we look forward to whatever contributions you feel able to make. They don't have to be in the form of photos, if you don't feel confident right now. As you browse the forum you'll find sections where you can maybe submit a review, recount an experience or simply offer a comment. It's all adding to the knowledge of making photographs. Enjoy.

Thank you

I started playing pentax half a year ago. The performance of my K10D really impressed me. I like it a lot.

Cheers to all of you.

I must say that I've really learned alot from reading all the good posts that people have put on this site. It's not often that you can come to a site like this and see just how many wonderful people there really are out there. I've never seen any rude comments or that person that has to rip appart someones work here. I must say that even a bad picture posted to here have good and creative suggestions rather than a dig. I havent posted to this site before because I'm not a big writer and feel that I'm new enough to the digital scene that I couldn't give good advice. I've been taking pictures with a pentax camera for most of my life and hope that I can start sharing some of my pictures and comments with others. All in all I would just like to say that I really appriciate all of the good advice from all of the people that use this board and hope you all know just how nice it is to be a member of this site.
