    Welcome to the forum racort. The only thing I see recognizable in the first one is an anvil, the rest looks like clutter, and in the second, one old cannon. So, for me, the photos are a bit of a let down compared to the wonderfully dramatic title. They could use a boost in contrast also, very limited range of tones.

    Can't stop thinking about your signature line, seems like you are saying that an autistic person is not capable of being artistic......? :raisedbrow:

    Try clicking on the images to see a larger view, it seems to look somewhat better. These pictures were taken at a restored Fort along the Missouri River from the 1850's. The first is of the blacksmith shop, I am old enough to remember blacksmith shops very similar to this back in late 40's, early 50's in the area I grew up in. The Canon is a 2 1/2 inch which would shot either a ball or most likely grape shot. The blacksmith would cast the shot for this gun.

    As for my sig, no, I am not saying an autistic person can't be artistic, it's just a line I borrowed from elsewhere on the net, sorry if you seem to have found it offensive, not meant to be.
