    I had just got my camera and learning how to do things. And I decided what the heck. Lets see what this looks like.

    I plan to. I'm hoping to go out get some shots of some ald abandoned barns we have where i live. Well that's if this rain would ever stop over here. It's driving me nuts.

    1st is good, try the same shot with a deeper depth of field to get a good vanishing point. as for the second one, dont be a mypsace photographer and just turn all of your photos and make them black and white and think they are amazing art.

    and as for the rain, get a plastic bag and a rubber band and get out to the barns. the rain will give the deserted barns an even more cold and desolate aura.

    It looks to me like these are of a scale model.

    Something just doesn't look right to me. Maybe its just the DOF.

    The rain finally stopped. What was up with all this rain in the DFW area recently?

    Anyways, first one looks good, next one was a nice attempt, but didn't work for me.

    Here's a question though, whats up with those railroad ties? Why do they look like they're the size of a toothpick? It seems like theres lots of super small ties, vs standard tie size and spacing.

    I like the first picture a lot. I don't quite get the second.

    What is that object towards the middle of the first photo on the railroad tracks? It looks like a microphone.

    After looking at this again, I am almost convinced that this is of a scale model railroad! That thing in the middle of the tracks looks like a nail that is used in model railroading. The planks of wood look way too small and toothpicky. And the size of the rocks look like boulders compared to the tracks....

    The only thing that looks real are the bushes and trees in the background. But they are out of focus so that doesn't help.

    Yeah, but what'd he use for the rocks for the ties? Kitty litter? In the second picture there is a significant drop in the tracks down the line.

    I have to say, an photo that stirs controversy is a good one.
