My main objective in posting the question was to seek advise from the experienced guys on CS on how they decided on when they were ready. There are new photographers starting off a little too early and producing unsatisfactory pictures. Some deem themselves "professional" when their pictures suggest otherwise. Wanted to get some advises and keep myself away from such mistakes. There are no right and wrong answers, just good answers for reference. One can still agree or disagree. Thanks all whom have posted.
