    The remnants of a WWII outpost, all the wooden structures on the Island have been burnt by vandals. I am planning to reshoot this and three other military sites in IR as soon as I get a chance, what do you think.

    Thanks Jon, You are right about the second shot being a bit blown out, I used the shadow/highlight tool on it just a little to try and help it, Im not that happy with that shot but it is the only one I have of that building for some reason :scratch:

    The last shott is of a friend of mine checking out what used to be one of the two main gun positions on the island. In the background are the remains of two lookout posts and a celtic cross erected as a memorial to the people that died on the island when it was used to quarantine incoming ships in the 1800s.

    Like John said, they're all great. Especially the stairway! I think these were prolly pretty hard to shoot, being they're just there on their own, and you did a great job! The bw fits nicely :thumbup:

    Great shots, the black and white works really well on them. The buildings have great texture. 1,2 and 4 are my faves.
