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.

    • What exactly will you be using it for? Driving around the country with the top down, hunting the back woods, fording small creeks?   Do you have a particular budget to stick to?
    • at times the prop will stop on mine, usually when I move it to turn, need to tear into it sometime, I have use fishelectronics for misc. parts
    • I might have to get out and test drive a few and figure out what I like and don't like. Definitly not buying new so Ill narrow it down a bit and then wait for that cherry to show up.
    • Good job on getting it done with a limited amount of time left to hunt.
    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
