Thanks for the kind comments.
Mike Sivcevic: Adobe is screwing Australian customers yet again. LR5 costs $149 on the US site and $186 on Australian site. Same product, same server, same credit card gateway, 25% difference.
They've constantly been screwing us up, most notably with the CS6 that is about twice the price here comparing to the US pricing. It is cheaper to board the plane, fly from Australia to USA, buy a boxed copy in store and fly back.
Greedy corporate morons!
To Eddirp. Good of Adobe to make allowance for the minimum wage. Presumably they sell it for $1 a copy in India.
Mostly Lurking: There are no rules in composition, only the good and bad.
This is simply untrue. No-one is saying these rules apply in every case, but they are a good starting point, particularly for beginners.
