Cannons

By leontari
America's oldest masonry fort, the Castillo de San Marcos ("Castle of St. Marks") has overlooked the waterfront of historic St. Augustine, Florida, for more than three hundred years. Actually the tenth in a series of forts built to protect St. Augustine (the previous nine being constructed of wood), work on the Castillo was begun in October of 1672.
V2: Hotshot furnace used to heat cannonballs to shoot at wooden enemy ships. (only to see where are the cannons placed)
Thank you all of you, for you warm comments and votes on my last upload.
Thanks for looking

V1 is good. The defender's view, cramped, under siege, but relatively safe.
I'd be inclined to crop a bit off the left, up to the edge of the ironwork, to enhance the enclosed, claustrophobic feel - but that's just how I see it.

Well seen and quite well exposed showing the brickwork through to the other side. I'd be inclined as Moira, to crop to the left, but I would also crop at the bottom. The brickwork in the front is just a bit too bright and takes the eye away from the details inside the furnace.

Thanks for the informative commentary.

Than you Moira for your advice, but I wouldn't like to enhance the claustrophobic feel. So I will try something between yours and Anne advice. Crop a bit off the left and at the bottom
Thank you again
