    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Sorrow.

    Another image from our trip to San Antonio, Texas. This one was inside Louis Tussaud's Waxworks inside Ripley's Believe It or Not building. I was really impressed by the detail on the wax figures displayed there. Unfortunately, not all of my shots are that good since the walkway are too small and the lighting is so poor. This was lit by one spotlight and it caused my first shot to totally have that awful orange cast. To make up for it, I increased my ISO to 400 and then activated the built-in flash on my Nikon D70 and applied a -1.3 EV flash compensation so I can get a more realistic skin tone from the shot. It'd be nice if I have an SB-600 or SB-800 to help me out but I'm still saving for one. Thank you very much for viewing. There are some more wax figure shots coming so stay tuned.

    Sorrow.

    Interesting shot, but I see this as a perfect candidate for b/w conversion and maybe soft focus. It is pretty unsettling as it is

    I'm keeping the b&w conversion in suspense. Don't worry Steve, I will definitely post it.

    Yes, it's Mary - Mary. Just teasing you. I think this is Mary Magdalene.
