    Website Launch and a Big Thanks

    I am proud to say that I just launched my website at markbensonreeder.com. I am no where near the photographer or have the expertise of most of you on this forum but one things for sure, I have had many of you help me out immensely with great MF advice and solutions. Namely, Ed Cooley, Graham, Gerald, David Duffin, Guy, Vincent Goetz, Narikin, Donald Lavay and Ben Horne to name a few. Thanks again. Now to business, ALPA FPS and HR50mm ordered and on the way! Can't wait to try it out and share.

    I'll speak as a spokesman for GetDPI. This is exactly what this forum was intended at its early beginnings . A place to learn and a place to grow. Everyone you mentioned started somewhere on this path of life with photography. I can assure you everyone of us is thankful that you appreciate our efforts to help. No matter how much experience one of us may have , it's really our duty to give back to the industry.

    Your post touched me and thanks for it.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Very nice site design and beautiful images - I like your interpretation of the canyon - much better than the Peter Lik version

    Nice job with the site and imagery!

    I'm particularly taken by your House in the Clouds shot. Very nicely done. It's also one of the scenes that if you don't shoot it today you'll often find that the building has gone or collapsed the next time you go back.

    Congratulations on your website - really nicely done. Easy to navigate, and I like the "pull-ups" with info for each shot. You have some really nice shots there, the close-up of the waterfall with the rushing water in the foreground is absolutely stunning. As well as the House in the Clouds as mentioned by Graham, just superb.

    Cheers, -Peter

    Congratulations on your website! Very beautiful photos and layout. Also congratulations on your purchase of the FPS and 50HR! That is my favorite walk around combo. You didn't mention whether or not you purchased an FPS tilt adapter or not. If you haven't, I'd highly recommend that purchase as well

    Thanks Paul, Ed, Graham, Peter, Shortpballer, Don, Johnny, Simon and Guy for the compliments. I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. I had no clue I would get that type of reply. Shortpballer, I ordered the tilt adapter as well. I'm sure I will be asking you some questions here in the future.

    I will be around, so let me know if you have any questions! And when you get your new gear, make sure to post some pictures in the "show off your technical camera thread"

    It is great to see members of this forum actually benefiting rather than talking about d800's

    Good Luck with your endeavors. I wish you great success!

    Best Regards,
    Eric

    Hello Mark, nice site

    To help you, just create a .htaccess file with wordpad and put it at the root of your server.

    In this file copy past this :

    AddType x-mapp-php5 .php .php3 .php4 .htm .html .js
    <FilesMatch "\.(ico|pdf|flv|jpg|jpeg|png|gif|js|css|swf)$" >
    Header set Cache-Control "public, max-age=290304000"
    Header append Vary: Accept-Encoding
    </FilesMatch>

    <FilesMatch "\.(xml|txt)$">
    Header set Cache-Control "max-age=172800, public, must-revalidate"
    Header append Vary: Accept-Encoding
    </FilesMatch>
    With this, it allow the server to compress your pictures. Then they load far more quickly.
    Kind regards - Hulyss - hulyssbowman.com

    beautiful site. I don't know how I missed this last October but it is a great job. I wish my site looked half as nice. The images are spectacular!

    Thanks for the tip, I found out however this isn't compatible with my web host.
