@ Tora Ziyal: Oooh! I love ruins like that! Nice capture!

Here are a couple of photos from today's snow day (and one from a concert I went to last week).

Do you live in New Hyde Park? or is this Queens, maybe? Sorry just wondering...

Yep, it's Queens. Those are the North Shower Towers in the distance.

Sakrysta, my condolences.

Tuesday, we hiked to the ghost town in a state park. This is the ruins of an old church.

Where is this? I've seen ruins of old mills along the Potomac north of DC.

^ Patapsco Valley State Park. So, along the Patapsco, not the Potomac.

*googles*

Not in any areas of Maryland I'm familiar with, though I've been close by several times.

The photos of the ruins I mentioned are somewhere. I'm not sure where

We use to live in Great Neck before moving to Syracuse. My wife worked at LIJ Hospital.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I'm closer to Lake Success than Great Neck - but the missus grew up in Little Neck. I can actually walk to (and see) LIJ from where I live.

Moving to Syracuse, though ... how has the lake effect snow been? I used to drive past Syracuse (from Albany to Rochester and back again) on a weekly basis. And in the winter, it seemed like it was forever snowing there. In the spring, summer, and fall, though, Central NY is very scenic.

Nice shot. I noticed you shot at 1\800 and ISO 160. I guess you have your camera set to auto ISO? Which lens did you use?

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Thanks!

And yes, I've found myself tending to use the Tv setting on the camera, setting my shutter speed myself and letting the camera choose both the ISO and aperture - especially if I am out shooting moving subjects (people, birds, animals, planes, etc.). That way I'm less worried about exposure and more able to focus on framing and capturing the subject at the right moment. My new 70D really does well with that, with its focusing system and faster frames-per-second. This shot, though, was with the old T2i (it was about 10 degrees outside and I didn't want to expose the new camera to the more extreme conditions). Its buffer fills up after just a couple of shots, so I was fortunate to get one that captured the action. I used a Canon 18-135mm (non-STM) lens. I really like its versatility.

Nice. I find the buffer on my T3i fills up fast too, especially when shooting in RAW.

It's the one in Ann Arbor, but I can't remember the name of it offhand. Cool shot Ruaidhri!

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Now that's a cool panoramic shot of the stadium. That you got the entire scene in just one image is pretty impressive....a lot of pictures like that are composites of several photos edited together, so congrats!
