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.
