weathered another storm       ©2016 elliott
Panasonic DMC-FT5       20th place, 26 points
1/639s, f3.3, ISO 160, 28mm, Landscape, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: straighten, convert to bw, boost shadows a bit       Extra Info: this is a coastal submarine watch tower from ww2 era. it got an update to its foundation and supports maybe 15 years ago (which probably helped it weather this last storm matthew). we lost a lot of dune and most of the wooden walkovers and pavillions during the storm. (very little damage to my home nearby).

    Great shot, nice write up of its history. My only minor complaint is that I think I'd liked to have seen it cropped so that it wasn't so centered. Still an awesome shot.

    The history is interesting enough to put it in my TT. The photo could do with a little more contrast.

    Nice choice of local history. Improvements I'd suggest would include shifting the camera a bit toward the right and waiting for better light on the structure. Glad you weathered the storm at least reasonably OK.
