    these are just a few pictures i took in oakwood cemetery in huntsville, tx over the past couple of weeks. one of them is using the zoom effect i also posted about in the "how to" forum last week. i didn't touch them up at all because i don't have decent software here to use anyway, but they've lost a little in the translation (the color isn't quite right and they're a bit less sharp here than in person). oh well. you'll get the general idea.

    comments/criticism welcome, as always. enjoy. :)

    (the face of the statue on this following one is much clearer in person, as it ought to be using this effect.)

    and this last one actually has nothing to do with the cemetery or the other photos except that it happened to be on the same roll of film and i'd like to share it but there's no need for a whole new thread just for that so... here. :)

    I really like the second photo also. You have an artist's eye, I think.

    funny you should mention that. :p i'm taking a design class in the art department at my university because it's required for my degree (BA in photo) and during one of my critiques the other day my art professor told me i should be studying design. apparently he's gotten the idea from the work i've done in there so far this semester that it comes naturally to me.

    so maybe it's not just a coincidence that my best grade in a photo class thus far was in my photo design class. :wink: something to think about for graduate school i suppose.

    and thanks. i really like the second one too. i've got a copy of it that's 8x10, but i have yet to frame it. i definitely plan to though.

    Nice shots,

    While i like the first three, i do rekon B&W would add a much more dramatic effect (perhaps even infrared film). Just a thought.
