This definitely gets an insta-fave for being well organized, informational, and very helpful! Thank you ever so much for posting such a lovely resource. <3 As someone who does photography as a hobby (Don't check my gallery; I don't post many pictures there, especially not my good ones), I am always looking for ways to improve.
