I'm Markus and all I can say is I'm so glad I found this place. I live in Melbourne and have been doing the photography thing for about 15 years but only in the last year or so started taking it more seriously (including shooting b+w). I found this site after reading about it in "Black and White Photography" magazine. It sure makes a welcome change from all the other online photography sites where everyone seems more concerned about whether their Nikon is better than a Canon and so-on. I hope to be here for a while and improve my photography too.
