    I assume we can upload any existing images, since we didn't have a subject until now?

      So - question... If we have an image that we took last spring, but just learned some new techniques for presentation, and want to include that in the critique, is that ok? Or do the images all have to be taken in this 2 month period?

    • Guy H.

      It is all about the new! I have many pictures that I have been re-processing based on a new technique I just learned or better software now available. We are all trying to keep up with the "state of the art". Your approach is perfectly acceptable.

    I cannot find it.

      Hi Rachael, for future reference we meet in an old house at the very end of the path. There's an open barn to the left of it, and the house to the right.

      It is referred to as "the Young House". It is in about the middle of the South side of the property.

    It was a very brief presentation

    I was looking forward to this very much, I even mixed up my weeks and tried to go last week. (Nobody was there.) However, I've got bronchitis, and it looks like I had better stay home unless the steroids I just started take effect REALLY fast.

    February 11, 2014

    • Guy H.

      Let's hope the steroids work!

      February 11, 2014

    • JEN c.

      We missed you. Hope you feel better fast

    I was looking forward to tonight's meeting, but with the weather not being so great I decided not to get out. I live in Little Elm and it would have been a rough drive. Sorry for the late change. I will look forward to the March meeting.

  • Rachael B.

    I look forward to it.

    Won't be able to come. Out of town, was planning to come back on Tues, but delaying that because of the bad weather. Will miss reviewing my "Best of 2013" pictures. Was also very interested in focus stacking that is scheduled to be discussed. :-(

    • Guy H.

      A strange winter this year. We have a lot of focus stacking to talk about. I hope we can fit it all in.

  • Larry H.

    Won't be able to come. 93 year old mom pasted away and got to go to Kansas City for funeral.

    February 9, 2014

    • Priscilla

      I'm sorry for your loss, Larry.

      February 10, 2014

    • Anita O.

      My condolences, also, Larry!

    Work keeps me from joining tomorrow and I really wanted to listen in on the Focus Stacking.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
