EDIT: The title should have been about Yorktown, not the James river.

This is the first of a pair of pictures taken into the sun. The first is on the battlefield at Yorktown, Virginia.

This is a hand-held shot in late afternoon, directly into the sun, and a color-curve enhancement done in The Gimp to bring out the shadows.

I've been experimenting to see how the camera handles pictures with extremes of color and brightness. So far I'm liking the FZ20. Not so good indoors and under flourescent lighting, but does well outside.

Wonderful shot CSH! Nice work!

Before reading your text, I zoomed right in on your photo. My first thought was that it was taken at Gettysburg (sp?). I'm not a Yank, but I have spent some time in the States in past years, and have been to Gettysburg. It's a very beautiful and haunting place. One can almost feel the ghosts of the war dead. I imagine the Yorktown battlefield is very similar ... your photo implies as much.

My father used to take great photos of memorial battlefields up here in Canada. I'll have to check with him to see if he still has them.

Your photo is a keeper! Please post more!

Nice photo, but that thing on the left is distracting. what is it, a stump? A dog taking a dump on the grass?

I have no idea what you are talking about. I don't see anything specific on the left.
