Thanks for all the great ideas Marc!

  1. Hi,

    First of all, thanks. I’m proud to make interesting work. I’m thinking of making a flickr group for real estate photo, to share and discuss on diverse situations. What do you think?

  2. Hi Marc-
    Yes, I think that would be a great idea.

    Hi there !
    Just wanted to report 2 url errors I found:

    first, on :
    the url should be, without the www (It may not seems important as the page is supposed to redirect the reader, but I had javascript deactivated for some reason)

    Same problem with marc’s wide angle camera list on this entry: don’t know how reacts other browsers, but with mine, I had to manualy remove the www in

    Well, that’s about it for now… 😉
    Keep up the good work !
