The Bluebonnet is pretty and the state flower, but the Mexican Hats provide as much or more color, and last longer.
City Park has the sculpture garden, adjacent to the N.O. Museum of Art.
Mark, you have a lot of good advice from earlier responses, and I'll provide you some photos taken there that may be of service. Don't know how long you plan to be there, but there is a lot to see. The cemeteries there are unique because the water table prevents underground burials. My favorite is the Metairie Cemetery, it's not far from City Park. A lot to see in the French Quarter, and don't miss going to the Napoleon House for lunch and a muffaletta sandwich. If you hear, or read in the local newspaper, about a jazz funeral, you may find it interesting.
A comment from someone who has experience with Sigma zoom lenses is helpful. Appreciate this information.
I'll give it a workout for a week or more and see how it does. Appreciate your comments.
Yep, going to the manufacturer is the best solution.
Thanks, I'll give it a try. Got enough time to return.
Just received a new Sigma 18-300 lens for my 7D. When zooming, it is a lot stiffer than other zoom lenses I own. How can I determined if I have a problem or if this is normal for this lens? I called B&H and they suggested I use it for a while and see if improves. Need to make the determination within their 30 day return policy.
Jim.... I have LR5 and PSCC so I have 3/4 of the software needed. I'll look up the plug-in you used. I appreciate you sharing with me.
Jim, Beautiful interpretations, both. What software and technique(s) were used to accomplish the sketch version? Very unique image. Is there a tutorial on the UHH website?
My kind of photo; love the tone and texture. Productive insomniac!!!
Very appealing geometry supported by a pleasing blend of tone and texture.
Very nice photos and an interesting location.
Thanks, and glad you enjoyed.
Thanks SB, your information is very helpful in making plans for my trip to Maine. I've visited New England in late September for the changing of the leaves without making advance reservations, which I've been advised is risky. However, It's hard for me to anticipate how long I want to stay in a specific area depending on the environmental scenery, weather conditions, etc. Do you feel it's risky to not plan a route and make motel reservations in advance.
Also, thanks for the connections to your previous postings of Maine and Canada locations. Beautiful photographs of just the kind of subjects I'm interested in.
