Twelve photos per member, per event seems like a really reasonable number to me as well.

YES, please just get along.

I understand Dan Burns point of view as a member he has every right to express it. If we all jump on the Massimo ban wagon then this is not a social group.

As a new member I would like to thank Massimo for a well written and respectful request for dialogue.  I'm not sure what Sue's thoughts are behind her request for just 12 pictures per member, per event, but I hope that we can all wait for her response.

Next, I also hope that emails back and forth with sniping disguised as "polite discourse" stop.  I have left other meet-ups when situations like this devolved into further nastier exchanges between just a few people, but which occurred in the public forum. 

Each person has a right to their opinion and I'm guessing that Massimo didn't write his email as a request for others to give him advice on how to become a better photographer.  That wasn't the point at all.  Massimo simply asked for clarification.  I think that should be respected.

Everyone has their own style of learning.  What might be a "beginner's" shot for one person, might be a step-up for someone else.  While perusing national magazines may be something that one person finds educational, it may not work for the next person.  An opinion is an opinion, but peppering that opinion with judgement and unsolicited advice is not the way to further polite conversation.

Yes, yes, this is my request for everyone to please just get along.  In the end, no one regrets the unpleasant things they did not say~

Sue, please weigh in so that we can put this behind us and move on to the next planned event~

Kathy
