This page was getting lost :wall: , we are all missing out here, there must be plenty of you out there that have some photographs taken at Sunset dam :hmz:
The standard of photography is extremely high on the forums , we have some brilliant photographers with us here on the forums and there is not a single one of them that would insult our efforts, all we get is encouragement and compliments, so lets see your photographs. :D

I will say this, none of you keep your photographs on your computers because they are terrible, to you they are special and hold wonderful memories.
I, as would many others here like to see your photographs. Not everyone is able to own the best cameras and bazooka lenses, but here on the forums it does not matter, the encouragement from your fellow mites is wonderful and always sincere.

Like this for example , everything is wrong maybe (not for me ) , it was the first photograph I tried to get with a bird in flight because of what I had seen on the forums- you have to start somewhere :D :D
