    Wonderful tip about combining two different focus points in one photo. In a landscape photo would it be possible to combine three focus points, foreground, middle ground, and background.

    Well my first comment was about the Droplets (RC) and i still think that was a very cool tip.

    Pero definitivamente deben comenzar a meter algunas palabras en SPANISH por que muchas personas de otros paises los ven y tienden hablar SPANISH.

    Pete i like the rino head… very cool

    Isolating effects was a new tip for me and i will use that for sure… :)

    Kelby… you’re the best. Me da gusto ver tus videotutoriales y aprender de ellos.

    Saludos desde Minneapolis MN
