    off topic, I need a few ideas

    are you missing one obvious item? photography lessons? you could also do basic pc and internet courses for the older generation, help them get online and keep in touch with their relatives

    Susie the model

    nice shot would be nicer with a little more light on the eye on the right as you look at the shot but that may be because I'm a doggie person and think the eyes are important

    yep the crop and tone down works for me like that a lot

    i like the effect but (you knew there would be one lol) for me theres too much space at the top of the image and the yellow and red look too bright for the ageing effect that has been added, Overall a nice image but for me those things niggle.

    A thank you and a bit more besides...

    I suppose the forum comes across as a clique because some people have been here a long time and find a lot of time to post on here. I on the other hand have been here a long time and have no time to post most of the time due to work, diy, other business interests, planning a US trip etc etc etc. I have work on online sites and forums for over 20 years and sites that have a small dedicated group of users always look like a clique to the newbie and I don't think there is anyway to stop that. However this site has the lowest argument rate of any site I have ever belonged to and users do try their best to make newbies feel welcome. As has been said more tips about how you got an image might be good, There was a tutorial section at one point where people could do a this is how I did it post and others could chip in with other ways of doing it, I must check if that is still here. Mostly I think that winter is the quiet time for photography as the days are short and its too cold to go out for long or just too wet. i'll see if I can pop in a bit more
