A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.

excellent! welcome to primes. I spent the day shooting with my 50mm, though it's actually a 100mm on an olympus.

I'm looking to upgrade to a new telephoto for my Olympus 410, and I was thinking of something along the lines of an f/2.8 50-200mm like this one: http://www.amazon.com/Olympus-50-200mm- ... 06&sr=1-20

My question is, are there any places in existence where I could find such a lens for cheaper? I know that the answer is probably no, but I figured I'd ask anyway. Also, does anyone have any recommendations of a better/more appropriate lens? I would be using this at Red Wings games, mostly.

I have that lens and I bought it through Amazon. You can try mine before you purchase yours it you'd like.

And if you do buy from Amazon, please start with the Yellow link at the top of this page (it helps support the operation of this site).

So.....I got a Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens a few weeks ago and finally got a chance to play around with it briefly today. Looks like I'm gonna have me some fun! :heart:

My interest in photography began from experimenting with close-up work, so it made sense for me to make that my first lens purchase. I don't subscribe to the "recommended" order of buying lenses. Big surprise, huh? :mrgreen:

Gorgeous lilac!

I'm jealous, too, because I love macro shots, but I'm not inclined to get a digital SLR - I'm happy enough with my current Canon.

I look forward to seeing more. :)
