I recently returned from a trip to Gettysburg where I obtained some new (improved) monument photographs. I have been slowly updating and adding the new photographs to the website. This was my third trip to Gettysburg in 2012 (I also made trips in February and March). All three trips featured predominantly good weather which made for a lot of monument shooting and re-shooting.
On the photos featured on the site, I made two recent changes. First, I started using the ImageMagick plugin for rendering the images — ImageMagick is faster and provides better quality than the internal GD system used by WordPress (galleries on-site will continue to be run with Nextgen Gallery). Second, I made a change to the photo sizes for the main photograph of each monument, increasing the pixel size from 500 on the longest side to 650 pixels on the longest side. I hope you enjoy the larger and better rendered photos.
Finally, WordPress recently upgraded versions and it seems to have broken the plugin that runs my contact form. (It also temporarily broke many of the thumbnails I use on the Archives pages here, but fortunately I was able to fix those.) I will try to get a new contact form up on the site within the next week or two. Until then, you can always email me directly by using the address jgoellnitz *@* gmail.com.
