  86. I would love to win either book! Thanks for doing this!!!

  104. Love to have a copy of the books!!! thanks!

  105. I never know if we’re supposed to leave witty, topical comments related to our preferred prize or a simple check-in to enter our name. Since I’m not witty, I’ll opt for the latter and hope that I can get a copy of the Headshot. If mentioning other prizes that I’d be interested in helps, the How Do I Do That in Lightroom book sounds dandy, too.

  106. I am so thankful that there are resources out there like these. Would love to have any one of them. Thank you.

  107. Always looking for another Lightroom book!

  108. Love free stuff Thursday and it is followed by Friday, sweet :)

  116. i never win anything. Could it be the case now ? ;-)

  117. Either of these books would be great additions to my photography collection. I’m a fan of both Scott and Peter!!!

  118. No way. You’re kidding right? A free copy of How Do I Do That in Lightroom if I leave a comment? But what could I say?

    Do I try to be funny, or serious? Such a dilemma!

    I mean I could really do with a copy of this amazing book, but I don’t want to sound too needy!

    I also have to make sure I don’t say too much, as I might exceed the character limit, resulting in me being unable to submit my comment, thereby ending my chances of winning the book.

    Then again, if you don’t ask, you don’t get, right?

    So here goes…

    Please can you choose me to win one of your How Do I Do That in Lightroom ebooks. Thank you.

  148. Anything by Scott is worth reading, worth owning and worth telling people you got for free.
