    these are pics from a recent expedition to an abandoned Cold War Nike missle base that is about 10 minutes from my house. IIRC, this place was built qickly during the Cuban missile Crisis to shoot down Russian ICBM's, and was there after used to intercept Communist messages in and out of Cuba. Alot of people go and play paintball and airsoft there, as is evident in the pics, but alot of cool tags on the walls, and just in interesting place over all...during the day at least. At night it's kinda creepy.

    *pics slightly modded in PS...mostly levels, color, contrast...some overlays and other stuff too. Film was Fuji 200 ISO...camera setup in sig

    nice details of the drawings made by the natives there ;)

    the perspectives are mostly straight forward and not very interesting, though. They do not really have a foreground and a background, but are flat-ish. Also most of the images look a bit overexposed, but that might be an effect you tried to achieve?

    what i would really be interested in, would be something showing also some overview of the area, the structures. but that is only personal interest ;)

    Yes, more dramatic angles would have helped out the images. Very nice color on your captures.
    JMHO. :)
