Ah, now, I'm just a down-home kind of guy. I don't know the first thing about stone-masonry, only wood.

Besides, I'd think the Pisa Convention and Visitor's Bureau would be slow to grant approval...


(Now that I look at it, your last leaning building shot contains a lot of like-leaning elements -- leaning trees, leaning grass, leaning building -- all leaning in the same direction. Your original is a great shot, almost as though the world is pouring off to the right.)

Hi,

What excellent photos.

I would love to asire to take clear photos, such as those.

I too have a DX7590. May I ask what settings you used and if you used an added lens or just the standard one?

I have some photos of my own of a fire that occured 100 yards from my house.

Although I used standard setting at they were at night, with no tri pod!

Please could you give me some pointers?

Thanks Dan..the owners must have been proud.It's sad to see these great old buildings just waiting for the elements to bring them down.To me they are a testament to the pioneers and their desire to farm the land.It always awes me when I think how they erected these buildings way back when..with only horses..and how they went into to the field,picked and hauled the stones back to the site and then built the buildings.So much hard work!

Hi Darloal and welcome to the group!Thanks for your kind words..:-)..I really didn't do anything special..setting wise..I'm fairly guilty of leaving the dial on Auto and just snapping the shutter..lol. No other lens were involved..just zoomed in a little and cropped the picture abit in the Infraview program.I try not to use the digital zoom and if I do I make sure the camera is supported against something.The tripod comes out when I am using the add on Tcon lens or if it's very lowlight.But usually I am pretty lazy..:-).Don't be afraid to ask any questions here as this is one of the best forums I have ever joined..everyone is very nice and extremely helpful.I have learned so much from the friendly folk here..So start shooting and start posting..looking forward to seeing them!

Nice shots, Kashka. I agree with you about the Pioneers who built these barns. It took a lot of guts to hack out a living back then. These old buildings are a testament to them.
