    I got back from a conference at West Point yesterday. These are the unedited shots.

    Quix - The cannon shot is my favorite.

    We went apple picking today and here are some shots.

    Quix, I know that area of West Point. You actually see it and the Vanderbilt mansion when traveling on the Albany to NYC amtrac train. And we have lots of fall colors going on right now.

    Ewok I'm confused what you're trying to show here. These videos are not about the photography and this is a photography thread. Perhaps it would be better to create a model building thread or something to showcase these?

    This might be the prettiest tree I've ever seen. I stumbled across it while driving around town so the kiddo would sleep.

    So, I am not allowed to post slideshows of my model railroad? Just because I choose to post photographs of a particular subject in a particular way, I am suddenly persona non grata? That seems very arbitrary, and very unfair. And technically, videography is a form of photography.

    This is why I'm asking what you're showcasing, if you're showcasing the video and not the model railroad then I'd say that's fine, but it appears that you're just showing the model and not really in it for discussion of the photography or artistic aspect of the thread.

    I also see videography and photography as two different things. I don't think I'd like it if some of the film students started posting their videos in here either.

    Well, I don' t see too many other people in it for the artistic discussion either. A lot of the more recent posts seem be people literally just posting pictures and not actually discussing anything, which would suggest that this thread has wandered off course.

    In answer to the first part of your post, yes I am documenting the evolution of my model railroad, but I am also interested photography, which is not an interest that I get to indulge that often, so I am using my model railroad to experiment with my camera and to try different things. Its a convergence of two things that I enjoy.

    Ewok - pretty much the fact that one can like a post has taken away from the discussions that used to occur in this thread, however there have been discussions as recently as the last page. It might not be a technique or a camera specific discussion, but for me just seeing the types of photos that others like and are willing to post about is enough for me to learn something from the thread.

    Perhaps you can try posting some photos instead of the videos? They just don't seem to be going over well and I was trying to be helpful.

    I would never use video myself, and want nothing to do with it for my own purposes. I see video as being its own thing. You also didn't say anything in your posts to go along with the video. There wasn't any video here in the past and I don't think there should be now.

    Well, I don' t see too many other people in it for the artistic discussion either. A lot of the more recent posts seem be people literally just posting pictures and not actually discussing anything, which would suggest that this thread has wandered off course.

    Probably because it's the "Post your photography" thread. A cursory scan through the thread up through now would reveal that no one had posted any video until you did. If you're going to go way off the beaten path, bringing up the idea in a post beforehand is a good idea. When people talk about photography, "still photography" is still implied in most cases. Videography is its own thing.

    Sorry, this is not my photography, but I thought folks might like these. I won't make this a habit or anything, just thought you might enjoy these.

    Beautiful, Montie - where did you find them?

    And horsey, I love that tree shot. It makes me miss Fall back up north a lot.

    I found them at spacebattles.com where they have a "cool pictures" thread. They range from funny to video game fan art awesome. Those above jumped out at me as "I must throw them in that jcc photo thread".

    Yeah I've kind of gone crazy with fall shots this year because it is the first time I'm somewhere with pretty trees and fall in like 7 years. I'm trying not to post them all in the thread though I think I have another I'm going to have to post.

    It's what the thread is for! I know I'm going to keep posting pics from my recent trip until even I'm sick of them...

    #3 is my favorite of the bunch.

    A little something for Halloween (fun with front and rear flash):

    Wow that photo looks creepy!

    I tried to go see Obama speak, intending to make a political post montage, but was foiled in my attempts so I only have these two.
