It came up in a recent thread that someone thought we were somehow affiliated with Nikon here, with the implication that at least the moderators must be getting paid to paint a rosy picture of Nikon. I don't think you have to be around long before that's pretty obviously not the case.
What's your motivation for being here? I love the discussions here and am always looking for ways to improve as a photographer. I recently saw a TED talk by Dan Pink that I thought was great. While he was talking, I couldn't help but think of all the great people I've met on NRF. Thanks for all you do, everyone!
