Indeed!  The mansion is quite "run over" these days.  I had no idea there was a mausoleum out in the woods in a tract of land just off the mansion property...  It's pretty interesting, thanks for posting!   :)

Only in Howey-in-the-hills, FL

You run across the strangest things in the woods!

Landscape / Re: Post Your Best Landscapes

I don't know about "best"--how about least worst?   ???

Honestly, I seem to really struggle with landscape photos (I spent a week in Yellowstone and didn't come away with a single one that I thought was any good)--but this one seemed almost not bad, so I thought I'd share and get feedback.
I'm digging it!  I think you should post some more of your almost not bad Yellowstone images!  ;D

Thanks Gary, the landscapes are awesome!  About that Eagle image though... I know it's a 1Dx but it could have been quite a bit sharper no?n ::)  LoL! 

Just jesting Sir, Amazing and most excellent image Gary, thanks for sharing!  :P

Update on Sigma 35mm. I took it in locally and they saw I was AFMA to +10 and they actually put it at about +15 internally so my camera is spot on and I am at 0 in camera. That makes this lens that much sweeter. Glad I took it in. If you buy a Sigma and it seems off send it in is my advise.

thats what my siggy 85 1.4 was like sent it in to sigma and a week later it came back spot on
glad its working for you now
it will be interesting to see how much tweeking we can do when the sigma usb docks come out

The hungry heron and the cardinal (who does have feet) ;D
Nice feet on the Cardinal!  Good image of him with his bounty!  The feet turn out to mostly be a "must have", unless you're doing a head study or a 3/4 portrait of a bird.. I lost a local photo contest about 10 years ago, one of the judges told me that the only reason I lost was I didn't have the bird's feet in the photo... Crappiest part about that was, I cropped them out of the original!  Occasionally it'll still happen, not too often though!  I learned that lesson quickly!  ;)

I had a little bit of fun with a crystal ball in Madison Square Park over the weekend.

Looks like the spot they used for one of the early scenes from "Interview with the Vampire" didn't find Tom Cruise in the area did you ??

Good find & good Image as well.
Gary, EML, Thank you both!  I did a B&W rendition that I liked equally as well, perhaps better... gives it a nice creepy feel!

EML, Tom Cruise had already left the building!  LOL!  There are I noticed, two other souls buried in the Mausoleum.  I spied them looking through the glass on the doors..

I will offer two pieces of wisdom to the 'photographers' out there in the form of advice and a bit of reality:
1) It does not matter who you are or who you think you are, you are not even a fraction as capable as the camera you already hold in your hand..

Strange but unless my camera is being held in my hands, it's totally incapable.. it's worthless...  It is at least as incapable without my hands and my eye as I am without it... Except of course I could pick up a paint brush or a pencil or a crayon and make a rendition of what I'm looking at, my camera can't do anything at all without me... Or without my HOP... It can't even wake itself up in the morning...

So indeed, it doesn't really matter who I am or who I think I am, my camera isn't even a fraction of as capable as I am unless it's in my hands and pressed closely to my Human Optical Processor ready to do my bidding at my beck and call... with the criteria I determine is needed or required... 

Sounds an awful lot like those people that say to many of us quite often, "That's a great picture, you must have a good camera"   I respond yes, I do indeed, however I took good pictures before I had a good camera as well!  It's useless without me behind it.  It just sits there motionless waiting for me to tell it what to do... Without my constant looking and adjusting and pressing of buttons, it just sits there like a lazy dog in my bag...

It has it all indeed, it's not however capable of doing anything other than collecting dust without me...

All the best!  :)

I love this image...
It's great to hear feedback like that! It gives another reason to create works that are even better  :)
My pleasure!  I admire your work with your 35mm and your 85mm.  Inspired me to pull out my 85mm and work on some creative improvements!  Thank you! :)
