    That Trinity Cathedral shot with the dog out front is astonishing. Great find.

    Leo Tolstoy's picture is how I imagine RFS.

    Which embarrassing for me, seeing as rumor has it RFS is longer off the tee than me, and hits all of his irons farther.

    They are absolutely stunning. It was interesting to read how he created this photos and how now, with our computer capabilities, they've been able to be brought to life.

    I thought they were painted until I read about how he did it. I have never heard of that before. Amazing.

    As is the Saint Nil Stolbenskii Monastery viewed from across the lake. These pictures are incredible.

    Good stuff! The photos were so crisp and the colors were so bright. Very unlike the blurry, grainy images we're used to seeing from that era.

    I confess that I spent even more time watching the panel discussion with the Emmy-nominated comedians that was linked on that page.
