Whether just playing around with their cameras or repeatedly making trips back to the photo subject to check the lighting, these Tri-State-area residents captured some striking images.

The Herald-Mail is always looking for the best recent photos from the Tri-State area. Lots of amazing things happen in the area that others don't get to see. This is an opportunity to share those sights.

On the weekly Gallery page, we do not have space for family portraits, posed scenes or news photos that are published elsewhere in the newspaper, but we will make room for amateur photographers to share their talent.

 





George M. Constable, 69, of Hagerstown, said he's walked up Franklin Street lots of times, but one day glanced over and saw the view of the courtyard at University System of Maryland at Hagerstown and thought it would make a good picture. He returned several times to check the lighting during different parts of the day and took the photo around 10 a.m. Sept. 21 with his digital Nikon D-80.

Kevin Flohr, 51, who lives north of Waynesboro, Pa., was playing around with the telephoto lens for his Sony digital camera this summer when he photographed this red-headed finch on a bird feeder at his family's vacation place along the Potomac River.

Stacey Hose, 27, of Hagerstown, was leaving her in-laws' place in Maugansville in mid-June when she noticed the sunset just outside town. "This is certainly one of the most impressive sunsets I've ever seen," Hose wrote in an e-mail. She used a Sony Alpha 100 Digital SLR camera.

Chris Constable, George Constable's wife, shot this scene at Antietam National Battlefield on Oct. 5 with a Nikon D-200. "I just like the way the cannons looked with the sunrise, the silhouette," said Chris Constable, 54, of Hagerstown.

Michael Straley, 44, of Greencastle, Pa., is not a professional photographer, but he was looking for a photo to go with a story for Saint James School's alumni magazine when he arrived at the school one morning this summer and saw the fog. Straley, the school's director for communications and husband of Herald-Mail employee Robin Straley, said fog and unusual quiet at Bai Yuka, a spring-fed body of water wandering through the school campus, gave the scene an eerie quality. Straley captured the scene with a digital Canon EOS.
