" I just wanted to say THANK YOU for the excellent presentation you made last night at the SANP meeting. I truly enjoyed it and came away wanting much more. I have never heard a presentation on composition delivered in the format that you used and for me it came across in a clear and concise manner. Your structured, systematic approach to taking a picture is outstanding. Your photo examples and the questions you asked about each of them really helped drive home the two points you emphasized all night-Design elements and Composition strategies. I have a few books on composition and they don't even come close  to presenting the subject the way you did last night. " -Jim J.
