I just want to say "Hi!" to the folks here, and thanks for the permission granted by the mods.

A little about me: I'm into photography as a hobby, and I do my best to create as many dramatic and pleasing images as I can get. I'm purely an amateur, and learning is still a work in process, but I'd like to think that I am getting better at least.

My gear: a Nikon D40, an 18-55 kit lens and a 55-200, a couple of lens filters, tripod and a remote switch for bulb mode. Also, I use my phone camera for the quick snapshots.
