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

This one is great! I can feel the cold.

This monthly challenge will go on.... It'll help our photography talents grow as we seek new ways of photographing the assignments. Once we get more contributers on a monthly basis, I'll start handing out "awards" to the monthly winners.

This tree looks like it struggles to hold on for decades
before it either fell or they took it down from the edge of Green Lake.

I was up in the high peaks region of the Adorondacks last Saturday ( 9/8 ) and was able to get a few pretty good pictures. I figured I'd post them here even though they're not really IN the forest.

hah. Either that or I was in the right place at the right time! And it was an overcast day.

I have no control over contrast whatsoever with my little Olympus. The more bright sky I have in the picture, it dims the foreground. The more forground I have, it tries to auto-contrast and blasts out the sky. So I'm constantly trying to find that balance. And usually fail. :)

Bring a tripod and take both exposures. Then combine them in Photoshop.
