In all the time that camera has been...

Sean, I would agree that the screener did not like the plume being cut off. In steam shots, the conventional approach is to fully show the plume. Do...

Great photo!

Notice how an image must be reality-based for you to relate to it?

Is it not possible to simply say "Wow, I like that, I don't care how it was made!"
