    After some kind words from Canon101 I felt inspired to post up a link to my photo site. If there any other amateur photographers here I would love to see your work if you want to share.

    Did you make your own site or have someone design it for you? Maybe using a platform like Smugmug or Wix?

    I am currently using Wix as my design platform. It's really simple to use but eventually I will probably look for something with a little more flexibility.

    Love your work Rob. Have been trying to get a moon shot like that for a while, but I think my lenses are not big enough :(.
    I'm truly amateur so I don't have a site. I do have some great shot (so humble of me, I know) that I love and I will Try to post them when I'm at home (they are on the home computer)

    Thank you. I'm truly an amateur too and setting up a site kind of became a necessity as I had no mo more wall space to hang any pictures at home and I hated to have all my photos just sitting on a computer unseen. Moonshots in Florida are not that easy, lots of humidity here makes a lot of them look very hazy.

    I actually have a few terabytes of photos at the office. My best guess would be a couple hundred thousand or more.

    After a lot or recent purging I'm sitting at about a terabyte myself. I shoot raw and use Lightroom to manage them so I'm fairly organized and only keep stuff that I think is worth keeping. That of course does not include most of the family/snapshot type photos that are usually all .jpg and stored separately.

    Same here, RAW edited and converted to Jpeg in Lightroom. Usually keep wedding RAW files for about 2 years and then start to clean them out, family and portrait sessions for about 6 months.

    I export from Lightroom to .jpg for the website but delete the .jpg files after I upload them to my site. I love Lightroom, not sure I could live without it.

    Thank you all so much for the kind words. I will be posting a few more from my recent trip to Tennessee over the next couple of days.
