    "I have been a member of NPN since about October 2003. Without a doubt I feel it has been the best investment in photography I have made. Through reading the articles and posted topics I have learned how to best utilize my equipment. I have learned how to evaluate what is the best equipment for my needs and have learned how to use PhotoShop to best advantage.

    "By posting my own images and receiving constructive critiques I have learned how to improve my images. My friends and family are amazed at the improvement in my photography.

    "In short, I tell everyone I can that by participating in NPN I have essentially been taking a graduate course in photography. I highly recommend it to everyone interested in high level nature photography."

    Dr. Edward V. Cordes, NPN 1106
