    This image is just to big....I got the rez down to 75 and cut the size in half and it still is huge!! Click on image for bigger size then when the new window opens click on it again.(unless your browser opens it right the first time.)

    Here is story from Roadside America.

    Now I know why I don't live in Dublin Ohio....TAXES.

    ummm I have to think because I had to do it in stages because of my laptop's memory...12 jpgs with my D300 and Photoshop cs3's Photomerge.

    I had to do a little cloning in the telephone wires. I must have tilted my hand a little. I was in my car because I was on a driveway and I didn't have my tripod so I had to handhold it. I was just amazed that I didn't have any issues with parallax problems.

    Thanks George.

    I finished doing the pics of that site and I put this one up to show the size.:

    Subscribe to see EXIF info for this image (if available)

    D300 full frame, cropped only to get it to a 4x6 and then reduced to 100ppi.
    My lens was at about 180 (out of 300) I mainly used this to mark the end of the series. According to one of the websites, they are 6 ft tall.....It's amazing, Google concrete corn ears and the first five are about this site.
  6. Interesting. I'll never look at lawn ornaments and corn the same way again.

    God Bless,

    Thanks. Nah, When they are ready to be harvested, they roast them and then use one of the butter sculptures from the state fair to smother it and then sell it for a dollar a kernel.
