Re: EXB 717 5.24 megapixels

Custer South Dakota

Locals call this "Frozen Balls Falls" It is on a stream that comes down the Mountain in Catskills Ny and feeds Rondout Reservoir (A NYC Water Supply). After 911 access is not permitted!

Therer are 5 Reservoirs in the catskill mountains and all are connected by underground pipes. Then they run all the way to NYC with an underground tunnel. In NYC water will go up 6 stories from gravity feed. That is why the water tastes so good in NYC.

Sundown NY In the Catskill Mountains..also feeds rondout Reservoir

I lived in Brooklyn and Manhattan, Brooklyn water is better!

Famous Pizza place opened a rest. upstate, couldn't get the taste right, trucked Brooklyn water in, Pizza heaven again.

The tunnels are leaking, a new tunnel is being built, huge project

Thanks, I was wondering when that new tunnel would be finished. 1970-2020...when it's finished it will be outdated

Now I wonder why Brooklyn water would be better? All comes down the tunnel from catskills. I've fished several of those reservoirs in my time.

Do film shots qualify? Scanned they are technically digital.

I think so, what have you got for us? It is the sensor that needs to be below 6mp.

I bet you were quite pleased with this way back when you shot it, still a contender today.

Re: I mainly used my Sony H1

Awesome work, however, you inadvertently put a ringer in, the top shot says Nikon coolpix P80 which is 10mp. What is amazing, and highlights the subject, is how well all your H1 5 mp shots contend with it.

Winners to be announced Tomorrow

Thanks to all, submissions and exhibitions. I will peruse and have fun picking winners tomorrow. We did not get any didactic arguments, just images, I am happy about that.

I could have fun picking now, but, I have been in Irish pubs for several hours, celebrating the return to me of my repaired and beloved left channel mono tube amp. So happy it will be back in the system tomorrow prior to foot surgery next Friday. Goodbye to amazing but disparaged transistor sound.

Trust me, I will switch from McIntosh 300 watt per channel to Fisher 30 watt per channel, and the tubes will be more involving. They win every time in blind listening. LPs beat CDs, Reel to Reel tapes beat LPs every time. Analog gets overtones right, that is my opinion after 40 years involvement with quality sound.

I posted 21 of the 76 posts, perhaps another would be ashamed, but I had fun keeping the post alive.
