Hatch Pro offers some support with the developers - be aware they are not on U.S. time, so responses are sometimes delayed.
I've found three issues with this theme:
1 - Static front page doesn't permit use of the large header image that is characteristic of the theme design (this is only usable when you utilize the blog as your front page);
2 - Limiting the number of front page images in the lower third doesn't seem to work with sticky posts;
3 - Modifying the theme is quite complex.
My two cents.
