"I disagree sir!"
I've taken some time off from Flickr, not so much because I lost my drive and passion but because I was frustrated with the politics of this site, it feels at times that if you haven't HDR-efied something than what you've got isn't even worth commenting on! I'm over it though and back and slowly but surely making my way through all your fantastic streams!
PS I'm not saying HDR is bad honestly I'm amazed by most of it, I just wish non-HDR stuff got as much attention! And by that I don't even just mean my stuff!
