    My husband and I took a trip to the Old Penitentiary in our area on Wednesday. The day was rainy and dreary, but I thought it fit the mood of the old jail, so I shot pictures anyway. When I converted them to black and white I really liked them. There's quite a few here, so I'll post it in two threads so the load time isn't so bad.. I just wanted to share. Any thoughts or critiques are welcome! :)

    To the right here is the rose garden where half of the executions took place.

    Let me be harsh: I really don't like the lean on the first shot. Rotate and crop and that will fix it.

    Let me be frank: damn! fantastic series. Fix the first and maybe the last has a similar lean... this is a winning series, I tells ya! Great work ... (and the crowd goes wild....)

    I really like the 1st one, its got a sort of emptiness which allong with the b&w make it quite interesting.
