And I ran into a problem.
When I got to the Lounge section, the bookmarked posts were nowhere to be seen. The list just stopped. All the other forums are there.
I realize DU2 is not a priority for you, but I do like to read my old posts now and then.
I hope you can help. It would mean quite a lot to me, being a sentimental person.
Beware the anger of a patient man is the saying that comes to me now. Bernie has been very patient--40 years worth of patience. Now he's angry and now is his time, and ours.
I've seen the quality of those photos and I want mine to look that good.
But I have doubts. I'm a slow learner and I've never mastered the manual part of my camera, the Nikon D3200. I mostly use the auto/no flash setting on the little dial. And I have gotten some really good photos with that.
But I want more.
Are there any books that any of you would recommend? Or any sources of information on how to shoot in RAW?
Any help you feel like passing along would be great!
Thanks in advance.

1. Who wins the battle for control of the Republican Party?
Once again, the GOP is dividing between white-collar, center-right managerial voters and populist voters drawn from the overlapping circles of working-class whites and evangelical Christians. When those two blocs have diverged before, the managers preference (think John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012) has usually prevailed. But this year, no candidate has consolidated the managerial wing, and the races two front-runners are antiestablishment populists relying mostly on blue-collar (Donald Trump) or evangelical (Ted Cruz) voters. Many party strategists fear that neither candidate could win the general election. The primaries will determine if the GOPs managerial mainstream can unite to seize the nomination, or if the party will leap into the unknown with Trump or Cruz.
2. Can Democrats reassemble the coalition of the ascendant?
Thats the term I coined in 2008 for the groups that underpin the modern Democratic electoral coalition: millennials, people of color, and college-educated, single, and secular whites, especially women. Those groups are growing in the electorate, and if Democrats can turn them out and maintain their recent advantages among them, Republicans could win the presidency only by amassing dauntingly high margins among all other whites. But it remains to be proven whether Democrats can energize those groups as effectively as they did with President Obama on the ballot. Polarizing proposals from the GOP front-runners could help motivate them, but front-runner Hillary Clinton draws surprisingly tepid ratings from some of these constituencies. One related wild card is the continued tension between African-Americans and mostly Democratic big-city mayors over policing practices. This could depress black turnout from its record high when Obama ran.
Sometimes there is a rainbow...
And then there's the sunset, with these orange clouds:
