    Hi Joel - welcome back to the forum!

    Interesting review... I'm fascinated by this stuff although most of it is way over my head (mechanical engineer, barely passed my mandatory electrical course 30+ years ago). I'd like to know where...

    I think you've nailed it there. I'm running with 32 GB of RAM, and when LR is chugging away I've seen the resource monitor go up as high as 16 GB usage. So when your system starts to top out at 8...

    Nice entries! In spite of the PG-rating of Brant's picture, I'm still giving it the nod. I like the composition, the direct look from the osprey, and the post-processing including the vignetting...
