I just renewed my membership! I still can't believe a whole year has past since I joined this site. I joined the site about two weeks after getting my first camera and have loved every second of it. I blame and want to thank ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' toddhead for introducing me to this community. Todd has been a great friend to me. Not because he gave me a softbox and a great deal on my 70/200 mm. He's been a great friend because he is honest with me. When my shot sucks, he tells me so! I just don't listen.

I've come a long way IMHO.

My First:

A few of "what was I thinking?":

My only ribbon: (so far) (though I am extremely proud of the ribbons I have received from other DPCers)

This site would be very boring without the interesting personalities that roam the threads with advice and comments. Here are a few individuals who have been very helpful to me (directly and indirectly) and I'd like to publicly thank. In no particular order.

Congratulations Jeff on your first year here I hope your around for many more. It was fun to go Head-to-Head with you in the challenge last month.

All the best to you and yours.

MAX!

I've quietly admired your work for some time. Your images of your children are classic, and you manage to work them into some interesting thematic material. Happy anniversary!

Looking through your portfolio... I see I've given exactly nine 10's out in challenges, and this was one of them. Excellent.

Congratulations, and thanks! You have a natural talent that is fun and refreshing. Just think of what the next year will bring.... Wow!

I'd actually forgotten you were newer than myself on the site. I've gotten used to seeing you as one of the regulars, and you nailed a ribbon relatively early on.

Thanks for the tip of the hat.
02/01/2009 12:51:17 AM · #8
Oh wow, you've only been here for a year? I thought you'd been here longer than that lol. Look forward to seeing what you will be doing in the next year :)

Jeff,
Best wishes from an old friend, and from me.

Thanks! I gave each of my sons a K-Bar for my retirement. The girls got a teddy bear and a kiss!

Hey... just saw this thread. You're so sweet.

I wish you all the best in your second year of DPC. Hopefully your pictures won't suck as much.

Hope you have a great second year here, Jeff and I hope you'll be around for many to come. Thanks, as always, for the encouragement.

Awww! That's so sweet! Thank you! ...only a year, it seems so much longer...in a good way of course! LOL! ...Naturally we're expecting greater things from you this year, now that you are retired, and have all that spare time on your hands. LOLOL!! ...and Thank you for your inspiration, and encouragement.

If I were you, I'd worry about that Toddhead guy thinking you're sweet....

How's retirement??

Congrats on your first year! I was surprised and happy to see my name on the list of those that have helped you! I don't know how I helped, but I'm glad I could!!
02/03/2009 12:05:26 PM · #17
Congrats and your a wonderful guy and a really nice partner for the h2h! ;=)

Hey, thanks for the props! ;-)
You've improved in such a short time -- keep up the good work.
02/08/2009 01:02:58 AM · #19
I don't know how I earned a recognition, but I'm grateful for your gratitude! Congrats on making it through a whole year, Jeff, and looking forward to many more!
02/08/2009 05:28:02 AM · #20
Creating alongside you is such a pleasure - I can't believe you've only been here a year - you seen to have given much more - GRIN!

Looking forward to growing alongside you during the coming year and sharing more 'chicken dinners!'
02/08/2009 07:58:52 AM · #21
Oh, dear. I have an "interesting personality" ;-) I seem to be in very good company, though.

Congrats on Year One!
