Time for Retirement.
11 months ago

Time to convince me otherwise?  I have been a part of this forum for nearly two years and generally contributed through:

Images in Bootstrap Scapes, Monochrome, C&C and Weekly DSLR

Images in my own threads

and

Competitions.

Lately (past few months) I have found very few (2 or less mostly less) answering any posts I make where images are involved and that's proving hard to swallow.  On top of that I have had 1 image make top five in competitions and it's got me to thinking I am wasting my time shooting images for others to see and is giving me serious doubts I am cut out for this art.

I know the buzz here is on new gear around the corner, which doesn't concern me as I will never buy new gear so I don't enter into those debates.  My focus is on the photographic image, mine and others, and accordingly that has driven my desire.  That drive is waning.

Hopefully this thread will rekindle my desire but I have a very good feeling it won't make me change my mind.
