While I appreciate all the wonderful, wonderful artistic photos I see here (and all the great advice), this is pretty much what my subject matter is currently limited to. I think this is pretty hilarious, but it's just a morning in my house. I DID try out RawEssentials to convert, and (until I get my ACR back) I will continue to use it, because it is INFINITELY faster than NC. I will continue to READ DPR (can be a source of good info), but I will never POST there again. People in that place are downright NASTY, and often with no justification. I especially like the people who scoff at me because I own a D2X and am not a "pro", and don't post perfect photos every time. Thanks, everyone here for being nice.
