Ground Level of Fort Massachusetts

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Ground Level of  Fort Massachusetts
Ground Level of Fort Massachusetts
Fort Massachusetts is located on West Ship Island which is located 22 miles off the coast of Gulfport, Miss. This is something new for me with this type of picture as I don't get a chance to do them where I am at.

Well, Frank, for a "novice", you've pulled this b&w image off to perfection! It's outstanding in every way, especially with the light, textures, and repeating arches. Fantastic work!
WINNER, my friend!
Have a relaxing Tuesday!

You've done a fantastic job on capturing this scene Frank! I love the way the lines lead the eye all the way to the back of the scene. Great shot for your conversion to B&W.

Well done!
