Somewhat of a challenging subject because the best side of the building faces north and is in the shade. Was in Cooperstown for a Relay for Life last week and only had one shot to photograph this time. Remember climbing to the top and looking out the round windows. Thought that was sooo cool back then. Still a little frustrated that the images look better on my home computer than I can get them to look through photobucket.

Playing around with levels could dramatically improve this shot. I believe that's all it needs.

If you would like to give it a shot, be my guest. I messed around with it a little bit and this is better, but not good. It looks much better on my computer at home before I sent it to Photobucket.

I spent only a few seconds just to give you an idea. Someone really into Photoshop could do much more, I'm sure.

Yep, better already. Seemed like whenever I did a couple of things they would cancel each other out and I couldn't see much difference. I don't have Photoshop. I have Jasc Paint Shop. Like I said earlier, I can get decent looking images on my computer, but when I send them to Photobucket they seem to lose quality.

Maybe you should give Flickr a try. I have no idea what would cause your uploading problem. Actually, I don't have photoshop either. I have it's cheaper cousin - Photoshop Elements.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
