    Although I'd normally castigate you for posting a FS ad here, where FS
    ads are not allowed, I make an exception in this case.

    This is quite simply the BEST photo composition book I've ever seen,
    and made a HUGE difference in the quality of my photos. No matter what
    your skill level, this book can help you make better photos.

    I'm sorry for breaking the rules. I was not aware that FS posts are
