Another great shot Jon! Not your norm, but I really like it. Where did you go for this one?

Hopefully we can get together and go shoot again. I hate the fact I was pressed for time last time. I'm already getting excited about going to shoot the Aspens in Sept. Do you ever go shoot any waterfalls? I would really like to go shoot some waterfalls this winter with ice and snow all around them. Let me know if are up for that or have any suggestions.

Thanks Tyler. This was taken at the Argo Mine and Mill in Idaho Springs.

I was driving up skiing on New Years Day and was thinking the same thing. Let's plan it.

Nice shot. Do you have any of the mill that turned out interesting? The image above looks like it was a pain to figure out the horizon line. :D

Be sure to reserve some time to drag me along on one of your photo safaris too. Just a little over two months and I will become a member of the retired community. I'm sure I'll be headed your way some day to take photos.

I do, but I still need to finish processing them. Here's one of the outside to give you an idea of the place. It's not one of my favorites, but it is handy at the moment. I'll try to finish some more tonight.

Any time you want to venture out this way Gene....

Nice. Really impressive that you were able to handhold it, doesn't look too bright in there.

Interesting images of the mill and its equipment. The first and third shot looks like they may be oversharpened (having done that many times myself) and the second looks like there's some motion blur, especially on the ladder on the right.

Out of curiosity, did you desaturate these some?

Wish there was an old factory in my area to do these types of images.

Here's the third on revised with less sharpening. I agree with you that it looks better. First one I don't see it, but maybe it's me. Most of these are very noisy, but with the wood, rust and dirt I left it for the most part. However, it did make me look at sharpening as that just made the noise worse. Maybe that's partly what you're seeing?

I noticed the ladder too, but figured it couldn't be motion blur as the rest of the shot was still. If you notice the ladder is quite a ways behind the rest of the equipment so I'm going with DOF (even though it does appear as MB).

The only adjustment to color which was done to most of them was pulling out a little yellow which was more a WB correction than a desaturation.

I agree that there's really a lot of detail in a couple of the interior images, with the wood grain and rust etc on the metal. I'm guessing at a larger image size these look much better than they do at the size posted here. To be honest, I didn't think the images were noisy, just that the fine details were very prominent.

Thanks for posting the additional shots. What a great place to photograph.

Thanks all. It's on my list to go back to for sure. This trip was more tourist than photographer and though I made the best of the situation, circumstances made it very limiting. A tripod and time would go a long way toward getting some fantastic shots.
