    Went to Greenham Common today, which was the site of a US airbase during the Cold War. Its now a 'Site of Special Scientific Interest', meaning its basically a nature reserve. Anyway there are still some feature's of the airbase remaining and this is what i found.

    Critique welcomed.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Great series of an interesting subject. Number 1, 3 and 6 are my favorites. Black and white was a great choice for these, many of them have captured the ominous atmosphere very well.

    #1 comes out pretty strong. I also like the tone in #4. Well done.
