Jim, is that a challenge for me to find more stuff in WNY to highlight with my camera? I thought I was inspiring the WNY folks with my photos of the local sights that folks don't really think about. It's all good, just gotta find the good in things and there is a lot of history and geography in this region that interests me. I'm sure you'll find it all on your own.

As for this thread, a lot of great photos from everyone. Mark, great idea and I welcome another thread like this. Just give me time to get out and get some new material.

What a collection of photos! It's been a few days since I've visited this thread, and far too many photos to comment on all of them. There are a few, though, from the last few days that stand out for me. Stockdotta's dandelion jumps out with its lighting....Bob's pair of butterflies is amazing, as his his B&W photo of the mansion flanked by two street lights....fldspringer's spaniel leaping at a bird has always been one of my favorite dog shots on this forum, as is Rodney's luminescent role. Pure Evo, wasn't that presentation at the Polynesian Culture a blast to shoot? I did it a couple of summers ago and my fire dancer shots are among my favorites. You did a really nice job of capturing the fire, not an easy feat.

Yeah, it was great, and thanks! About 2000 of the 7000+ photos I took in Hawaii were of the PCC's island presentations, luau and show (two 16GB cards ) Among them, I got a ton of great fire shots. So much color and beauty there! And most of the fire shots were done with simple presets on the D90 and the package lens, I was so impressed!

I'm going to start another thread in "Other Photos" called "Fire", and I'd love to see some of your shots!

Oh, I knew I would regret my remark if you read it Mike. I have to hand it to Mike, he really gets out and brings out the best in Buffalo and WNY. I did post a series in the Pentax forum of the Parkside neighborhood, Darwin Martin House, Richardson complex, etc. and some from Forest Lawn Cemetery. Yes there is a lot to offer, and thanks to Mike's threads, I must formally retract my statement. Hope to run into you one of these weekends, if I don't recognize your kids, I'll know you behind the Pentax.

It's ok Jim, I'm just giving you a hard time. I'll have to check out your thread since I haven't had a chance yet.

Daniel, for a pretty new shooter you have nothing at all to be concerned about. You've got some lovely shots here with some hard lighting situations and done very well.

Daniel, I can only agree with Mark, and I think the first pic qualifies as a "difftcult lighting" photo, and you have nailed it. Nice pics, overall. Is that your dog?
