Through the arch

By ColleenA
Still on Port Arthur’s penal colony. This is a view from the ruins of the convict hospital looking towards Smith O’Briens cottage. The first version is a view from a window of the hospital looking towards the Mental asylum.
The other versions are a full view of what’s left of the hospital and of the Asylum.
Many thanks for your votes comments and user awards all much appreciated

Thank you they’re all my favourites, I went with the lead as it has shadows in it.

Looks a lovely spot for a penal colony! Nicely done Colleen - I do like the 'clean and crispness' of your images.

A fine set of detailed shots further documenting this historic penal site, and a site which appears to be in beautiful spot. Quite different I'd guess to the conditions at the time.
From a purely compositional viewpoint, V 3 is also a favourite for me, but each shot tells a story.

An interesting look back in time - again sad to think of people put into 'Mental asylums'
who would be treated differently nowadays.
