As there doesn't seem to be a way to change names here, I'm moving to a new profile, coincident with getting more serious about my photography. This name is irrelevant and has been perceived negatively by some and I need to discard it.
It will take some time to move everything over as I'm taking the opportunity to reprocess many of the photos and color correct, etc. When I'm done, I may delete the duplicates here so that there isn't more than one of them floating around the site, but I feel bad about the comments, favorites, etc. on the current ones, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do.
I only ever had two watchers here, and I very much respect their opinions and work. If they care to move with me, my new profile is up at gentleworks.deviantart.com/
