Thanks for you valued critique and input.
You have a lovely mandarin yourself. Please do not be alarmed by your English. You are doing quite find and so far I've understood every thing you said. No problem.
The one good thing about it all is the fact that you keep on trying and you're not shying away from it just because of a small challenge.
The second good thing is that not only are you improving your photography at TN, but you have a wonderful opportunity to improve on your English as well.
I am an Afrikaans speaking South African, so English is my second language as well. I also make many mistakes with spelling, but especially with grammar. Sometimes I forget, but I use old Bill Gates to help me with my English. Everything I type I copy and paste to Microsoft Word. There I can use the spell checker to quickly review my passage and once I am sure all looks fine I will copy and paste back to TN. Hope that can be of some assistance.
