I'm very excited to have found this organization. I can see where I will spend a lot of time here. I'm longing to hone my humble skills as a retoucher.

Hi Barry, it's great to have you join in our efforts!  You will definitely have ample opportunity to hone your skills here.  The forum is a wonderful place to pick up tips and techniques geared to the unique challenges presented with storm damaged photos. 

You will find the atmosphere here is often geared toward fun.  There are however one or two characters who frequently like to stir up a bit of controversy.  Not naming any names but just saying watch out for those from down under.  I think it may have something to do with his skewed view of things.
