    ummmmmm hello .. we're living right across the street from the oldest Mansion/building in Manhattan and my hubby fails to mention it to me :crazy:

    i mean, for pete's sake, our dog has pooped in their yard :lol:

    it's a musuem now (Jumel Terrace) ... i just think its a little odd that we've lived here since april and it didnt occur to him tell me that we're sitting next to a gold mine .. historical monument ... not to mention we like to take pictures...

    our dog has peed and pooped in their yard ...for pete's sake jeeeeeeeeeese!!!!

    i saw 2 bus loads of people going over there this morning .. told the hubby, he says, "oh yeh, thats a musuem across the street, its the oldest builing/mansion in Manhattan." ... i said, "we've been living over here all this time and u didnt tell me that." :scratch:

    so, we're going over now :D

    it was a beautiful mansion but not entirely suitable for "picture taking" (at least not for me anyway) ... i didnt get much, and the lighting in there was awful :? ... so i trashed almost all the pics i got, the hubby trashed all of his, except one or two :lol: ... but since u guys are gonna want to see something, i'll toss u a bone :p

    not exactly what u would call some of my best work :lol: .. they had some of the sections closed off, so i couldnt get closer ... for you "interior" shooters, i would love some tips on shooting indoors (in a setting like this) with minimal light :D

    saw this in the basement kitchen, near a window

    this was one of the living rooms

    another living room, they had several in different colors .. i stiched this one to make it wider

    I think the first and last are very good. The B&W was a great choice in the first and it really feels like I am looking at old used stuff. Something that could tell stories if it talked.

    The last picture is also great, I do not get a warped sense though and think it is stitched very well. The room itself appears almost mysterious to me and therefore very interesting.

    i forgot to mention George Washington the first President of the United States stayed there for a short time, one of the places he commanded his army during the Revolutionary War. . i got a sense of how they lived, the house is very big with a lot of rooms. :D

    also, Napoleon's bed resides in the house, the wife who lived there tried to lure him to the U.S :D

    Dew these are excellent. My type of shots :thumbsup:

    The first one is outstanding. Did you also try this one with a small reflector or two? That rope would pop out with added depth and texture. Also the buckets texture would be brought out slightly lighter.

    2nd one. This is my favorite i think. What are you saying the lighting sucked? Indoor window lighting is an outstanding lightsource. I like the falloff window light with the chair legs casting soft shadows. I love the black and white choice... this room looks so silver.

    #3... .This would be my favorite except my head keeps twitching while I'm looking at it. I really love the lighting and mood again on this one. Even more so than the last one. Also really dig the colors in this one. Almost looks like a colored black and white :)


    Whats the light reading like on these? What time of the day?

    we went about noon, there was an over-cast in the sky .. i used an external flash attachement with a "soft box" covering for a fill-in (except the first one) ... the ones that i didnt use a fill-in came out too dark.

    its hard for me to judge these types of photos, cause its not something that i would normally shoot (interior, landscapes, etc.) ... so all the while, the hubby and i kept saying, "we're not exactly interior people." :lol:

    u know, its hard to judge something u have no experience with :? ... so i went around finding little objects and such that i found interesting (like the bucket for example) :D
