Hi all,

It's Darren here from sunny old Bedfordshire. YouTube brought me here thanks to many helpful tips from Gordon's videos, namely how to enhance the subject in a photo and the benefits of using polarising filters. I hope I can learn a lot from you guys and share my experiences too. I appreciate good photography but I only consider myself an amateur.

Since October last year, I've been the proud owner of a Canon EOS 550D w/ 18-55mm kit lens (my first DSLR) after 3½ years with an Olympus SP-510UZ.

Nice to meet you all.

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys. I really like the atmosphere here. Friendly and civil discussion take place over rudely voicing dogma here and sadly, that's a rarity on the internet.

Welcome on-board Darren, and great choice of username - watchmen was my favourite graphic novel when it came out. I was also lucky enough to meet Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons who signed my first edition novel and separate issues! Ahem, sorry, off topic - back to business!

Hi Rorschach,

Please accept my warm welcome to the forum as well.

Much like you, many of us arrive here and stay here because of the civility that Gordon has established.

Here we like to run our karmas over others' dogmas..lol

Cheers :-)
