    Good. Now could someone enlighten me about "shoot ins"?
    Are rank amateurs allowed?
    I see an SI "committee".
    Who, what are they?
    many thanks again.

    we're running on a budget here.

    For example, we'll shake our fingers at you if you suggest that there should
    be a FAQ or a Moderator.

    The "committee" references are a joke. Alan Browne is currently the
    one who does the heavy lifting in deciding on the mandate, receiving
    submissions, and posting them to the PBase website. Since his efforts
    are largely unappreciated, we've allowed him to assume the title of
    "Committee". (We offered "Supreme Commander", but he opted for
    "Committee" in a rare - very rare for him - stroke of modesty.

    Most, if not all, of the submitters are amateurs. I don't know of any
    that earn a living selling their images. One earns income taking
    photographs for the city in which he lives, but not from the type of
    photographs seen in the Shoot-In.

    Some of the photographs submitted have been rather rank, though.

    If you choose to participate, you are welcome to do so. Just open the
    "Rulz" page and follow the rules.
    http://www.pbase.com/shootin/rulzpage Watch it, though, since Alan
    sometimes gets a wild hair and changes a rule. He posts current
    changes as messages in the newsgroup.

    It's intended to be that. Ignore the nay sayers and enjoy. Don't worry
    about equipment. I have posted images taken with my iPhone.
