  1. Jaimie Sue Manning

    Hi Guys, here in Perth Australia the weather here is miserable! What’s the weather like were you are?

  2. Sri

    Lovely morning here to sift through photos to edit. Happy shooting to all :)

  3. Drew Wohlford

    Thank you very much for the opportunity

  4. Yonatan Halperin

  5. Sue

    looking forward to winning!

  6. Summer Crook

    Hi everyone! Very late, or very early here in AL, depending on how you look at it! Love SLR Lounge btw. Always enjoy you guys and learn a ton, thanks so much! I especially love “Tuesdays with Laurie”!


    HI Guys, SHANG LING SEE here, It’s a very hazy day in Georgetown, Penang. Feeling dizzy.

  8. Adelle Lumalang

    If you really wanna know, weather here in the Middle East, Abu Dhabi UAE particularly, is at its peak with mercury rising as high as 55 degree Celsius, like right about now it reads 38C but feels like 55C, (100.4F/131F) how crazy hot is that? With that said, we cant shoot outdoors ;( so it’d be awesome to get a new awesome software to play with to keep me amused while staying indoors. Cheers!

  9. Elvera

    Hi there, Love the weather over here. Elvera.

  10. Matthew Chin

    HELLO! Its night now and its still hot here. I have 4 fans on now! Ah, summer in Jamaica. Is is possible for my computer to overheat? I still have some photos to edit and I don’t want anything to slow me down. Is it possible to leave a comment too long? I tend to ramble a lot. I always try not to. Is this thought random enough? Is this even a thought??? WHAT IF I DON’T WIN??? Can thoughts be this long??? I NEED ANSWERS. Anyways, thanks for the giveaway! Hopefully I don’t lose. Losing is generally something people don’t want to do. I should stop typing and get back to the editing. See ya!

  11. David Nutter

    Thanks for this great opportunity! As for the weather here in New York State, we finally got at least a little reprieve from the horrid temps and humidity!

  12. Ran

    Such a good day to create photo albums :)

  13. Tony Tomlinson

    Sun, sun and more sun. Big up to SLR Lounge. Keep up the good work

  14. Ronald Smith

    Random thought? Hmm, well, I could easily get in trouble for that, so I’ll be cautious, lol. Anyway, my random thought to share here is that it’s amazing the coincidence that this popped up in my feed, because my wife is working toward her own photography business, and this software would help her out amazingly well. Thanks for this epic opportunity, and may God bless all who enter with an even chance to win!

  15. Giancarlo Bruno

  32. Melissa Connors

    Hi! This summer is going by way too fast! Can’t believe July is just about over. I waited so long for summer as winter last year seamed endless. Our last huge snow storm was May 12th, Mother’s Day and we received almost a foot of snow. I swore I would never complain about heat in summer again and I haven’t. I love summer!

  92. Sachin

    It’s going to be a hot day here in Bakersfield. The dogs are licking themselves silly. I am contending with what should I start working on .. for my day job. I have so many things to deal with, but I can’t seem to prioritize. So I decided to take a break and look at SLRLounge.
    And I got my new sandals and mid-height backpacking boots. My old Tevas broke after about years of taking me on daily dog walks, an occasional sprint behind a runaway pup, lounging around campsites in the sierras, beaches of Thailand, Yosemite. I will miss those Tevas. I am wearing my new ones right now. In the house… just to see how they feel. I don’t like them as much. Perhaps I am holding them up to a really high standard: My old Tevas were bought for less then 1/2 their original price in the REI used gear sale.
    My hiking boots are to replace my older ones that I gave away on the way back from Peru a couple of years ago. Since then I’ve been using my trailrunners as backpacking boots too. Yeah.. I know. That’s just silly. But I don’t like to gather too much stuff.
    Does software count as “stuff” ? I am not sure… It doesn’t take up much physical space. But it does take up mental space. Well… we will see. If this will help me create something useful and interesting, why not?
    Have I been rambling? I guess so… I am a fast typer. Oh.. that reminds me, I need to clip my finger nails. They’ve grown long enough to bother me while typing.

  93. Tim

    Penguins are cool.

  94. Abby

    Hello! Talking about the weather is like scrapping a knee, it hurts! Is insanely hot here in Puerto Rico!… In the other hand the weather is great for a nice “PiƱa Colada” :)

  95. Mathias

    WoW… love fotofusion for years… looking forward to have the version 5 soon ;-)

  96. Omar Donez

  97. Priscilla

    Hi!(: how is everyone going? Today in my country is sunny!

  98. Richard Bremer

    Man, I love the smell of melting speedlights in the morning. But they really need more output (or Priolite heads need to become 50% cheaper).

  99. Josie

    Josie … this rain is not fun!

  100. YI R

    I’m in IL. So nice today, this week is the best week in summer. all around 75F degree. Time to take some photo outside.

    SLR Lounge is an AWESOME website, full of great ideas.

  111. gabriel

    if a photographer with no front teeth tells his clients to smile, what do you think they would do?

  112. Jimmy Arcade

    Jimmy Arcade – I wonder how much post processing has taken the place of using studio backdrops… And yet, I just purchased a couple of backdrops from a yard sale that a retired photographer was running. I suppose my question will be answered, in part, when I see how much I use the backdrops.


    Hello from hot Jakarta! SLR Lounge is the best!!

  114. Dennis Boyd

    Starting the morning off sitting on the deck overlooking the water reading the news and facebook.
