New Market Maryland, off of Route 70, east of Frederick, is a quaint, old-fashioned town which has made its name locally as a great place to spend the day antiquing. I came across this lovely setting behind one of the shops.

Image taken with the Nikon D300 and the 18-200mm vr Nikon lens on July 19, 2009. Shutter speed 1/200, aperture f7.1, iso 500. Post processing included hdr from a single hand-held image in Photomatix Pro, Orton in Photoshop, some play in DAP, then back to Photoshop for some finishing touches.
