All Along The Watchtower b&w

A different Watchtower overlooking the bombing range on the Wash, in the background a sunken battleship can be seen which is used for targeting. Sorry MS couldn't provide a different perspective of the sepia image as I cropped the image whilst shooting, thought this might be of interest though Smile

Perfect, gaz. Way prefer this. Great proportions, exposure with just enough detail in front, reflection nice, detail in foreground good and spooky wreck on horizon. How good is that? EDIT: forgot to mention glow behind tower...perfect

Many thanks Bruce, love the King Gaz Smile The actual image is of a watchtower on the "Wash" range of water off the coast of East Anglia on the east coast of England. The watchtower is from RAF Wainfleet which overseas the bombing range which is used by RAF and USAF fighter jets. Out in the background you can see a sunken battleship which is bombed and shot at all around the clock. The day after we were there 2 RAF Typhoons were in a dogfight with 2 USAF F16's now that would have been a sight. We saw the Typhoons take off from RAF Conningsby of which I uploaded a couple of pix. Hope I haven't bored you, get me talking about jet fighters and bombers I would be on here hours Wink Btw the retainer was on lunch break Smile

Its good. A bit too dark for me, and maybe too much area with nothing in. Still just my angle on things.

Cheers Barry, unfortunately was shot at the sun, basically silhouetting the watchtower, but agree it is a bit too dark. Appreciate your comments Smile
