Last of this monochrome set from Tynemouth Castle & Priory. Unlike the previous four it is an actual fisheye shot; the rest were taken on a superwide zoom.

If you enlarge the satellite photograph the gun emplacement is clearly visible just above the cliffs at the extreme east. On the non-epz version the gun itself is clear too. Unfortunately somebody has planted the Tynemouth Castle marker on the medieval Priory ruins (look at the shadow!) The castle keep & gatehouse form the structure to the left of the Y-junction of the paths. The building resembling an open umbrella is a redundant coastguard station, just to the right in my photo.

Rising from the ruins of the past and thrusting pugnaciously into the present.
Stunningly effective treatment, almost post-apocalyptic.
Threat personified.

Duck you suckers.

The quality and angle here are both superb Bill.
Marvellous monochrome with tons of tones and showing the gun to best advantage.

The top line is from a spaghetti western from some time back.

Like this even more than the first version. The barrel looks almost as if it's projecting from the ruin in the background. Very effective vignetting, too.

Regards.

It's easy for Dougie to say that................
A well chosen lens together with good processing.

Certainly puts a dramatic perspective on things with a fisheye lens Bill.
Could work well on rust I think.
A shot here where barrel distortion is not a bad thing !!

Another super image, Bill, think I prefer this of the two, and the 'warmer' toning Wink Looking at the map, it seems to be a great place to visit Smile

Powerful, intimidating and dramatic. Excellent POV, use of extreme wide angle and conversion/ processing.

This is a cracker, Bill. It gives the impression of being taken during the war. Excellent!
