    Our son graduated from Marshall University today with a BA in Finance and a double minor in Accounting and International Affairs. He has a good future ahead of him. He has been an intern with the huge firm that handles all of the state's Workers' Comp claims, and recently was promoted to a better position and made permanent. He worked full time and went to school full time much of the past four years. Proud Daddy, I am. A7 + Vivitar (Kiron) 70-150 f/3.8.

    Congratulations! My brother graduated from Marshall with a Business degree back in the day and had a good career, retiring a couple of years ago.

    Congrats.

    Image does seem a bit soft though.

    Thanks guys. With all due respect, Dave, why do people feel the need to point out when an image is "soft"? I knew when I posted it that it wasn't tack sharp, but I posted it because it meant something to me. Twice in two days someone has taken the time to tell me an image was less than ideal.

    Congrats Tony! You must be proud ;)

    Don't really understand the above comment tbh...
    This is a photography forum afterall and technically speaking, the photo is indeed a little out of focus - I'm sure Dave didn't mean anything bad ;)
