Here's some I shot Sunday morning, it's not my hometown anymore but consider it as my hometown, lots of friends there and I spend a lot more time there then where I live now, and do a lot of shooting there as well.
Portsmouth NH, Old North Church and Market Square, church was built in 1855 and replaced the meeting house built in 1712. The church members over time included William Whipple, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, John Langdon, a signer of the U.S. Constitution, and Daniel Webster, a U.S. Senator.

This is a portion of the Collinsville section of Canton CT. It got it's name from the Collins Axe Co. which started in 1826 along the Farmington River.
All shot in RAW format, brought into photomatix as a single shot, a little tone mapping done and than some tweaking in Paint Shop Pro Photo 12 (Clarify & Resize and last a touch of USM)
