The Huntington Library in Pasadena (Part 4)

 Wednesday, March 23, 2011

I've been posting macro shots all week from my visit to the Huntington Library but I did manage to get just a couple shots with my 50mm before switching to the  macro lens.  Just a couple though, unfortunately.  But this is part of the Huntington Library NOT in macro! Click herehere, and here to see my macro shots!

(by the way there were about 30 people in this picture that I managed to photoshop out, I'll have to post a "how to" on that later!)

And just for fun, one of my favorite macro shots in black and white (and with some texture)!!  This shot took my forever to get because the darn thing kept MOVING! So hard to focus on something that won't sit still! Click here to see the original in color.

Hello! I love it! All of them. I am interested to see your way to remove the people from the shot. I know a few ways to do it but I always like to see something different or new. :)
