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

September Photo Challenge - The Woods

Postby Matt » Fri Aug 31, 2007 8:59 pm

The purpose of these challenges are to encourage us to get out and get the best shot of an assigned subject. It's a great way to enhance your photography skills.
Even if you think you take crappy pictures, please join in. Those of you just reading the forum and not posting, this is your chance to join in and show off

Post shots of pertaining to "The Woods." It doesn't have to be of a forest... just anything closely related to the subject... and post as many photos as you'd like- we'd love to see them all.

The only other rule... it has to be taken in upstate NY. Be creative. There are no other rules... and maybe I'll pick a winner each month.

I tried to make this tree look creepy, but I guess and old photo look will have to do untill I can figure out a better way.

That 2nd shot makes it look like there's a full moon shining overhead and slightly behind the tree. Definitely creepy!

That's exactly what it is!. :) I've been going here since I was a kid. Those are my cousins Lexie, Gabrielle and Hayley climbing around, "supervised" by my wife Julie in a few shots! Some of those boulders are bigger than houses.
