    I have subscibed today and im very excited to have found this site. Im a begginer from Chicago Il and hope to learn from all the great photographers on this site. I have joined other sites and soon found myself unhappy with all the digital images that are posted and altered by computers in photoshop to look like drawings or cartoons " HDR IMAGES ". I have a strong passion for photography, Film Photography that is ! Im a begginer with a 35mm Canon camera and have alot to learn so please dont trash me to bad when i post a photo. Forget the last comment and trash me if you want because that will be the only way for me to learn. I Know how to develope 35mm black and white film but im still learning how to take a good photo. Hello again to everyone, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone at APUG.

    Hi Jim

    My good old Burke & James 8x10 is from Chicago, so I have some connections also with Chicago Symphony Orchestra, from the past but has never made it to Chicago yet, but this has to be changed not to for away!
    Warmy welcome from Switzerland, cheers Armin
