[simpits-chat] OT, but curious

Hey Guys,

A really OT thing for ya here, but I'm looking for some general feedback on 
something and I figure hey, they may not be entirely sane, and I wouldn't 
trust them with any of my valuables, but the simpits guys generally speak 
their mind without any reservations! ;) And if there's one thing they love, 
it's giving feedback!

So anyway, here's the deal. I've been into photography for a while now, 
although I've never had the time to put into it that I'd like. Well we've 
got an art festival coming up here at Tech, and I'm submitting some of my 
pictures. And then today I was poking around on the Sherman tank site again 
(I'm sorry, that thing is just TOO cool) and I see he's selling plans 
through a site called Lulu.com. It's a service that lets authors and 
photographers sell their work, and best of all it's free, Lulu takes some of 
the profit (not too much, actually) when you sell something, but other than 
that there's no cost. So if you don't sell anything, its a bummer, but 
you're not out anything. And seeing as you're not paying for 10,000 copies 
up front and everything is print-on-demand, its really nice for little guys 
like me.

Anyway, long story short, I've set up some of my pictures at 
http://www.lulu.com/BrianSikkema, I think I've got 11 up there right now, 
and I'm wondering what y'all think. And no, the picture of the striking guy 
in the tux isn't for sale! (And if you think that's something, you should 
see the girl that got cropped out of the photo! Yowza!! I wanted to leave 
her in, but hey, it's my bio, not hers ;). So anyway, if you could drop by 
and tell me how much I suck, I'd appreciate it. I mean, I can bash myself 
just fine, but its so much more fun with ammo borrowed from friends! ;)
