[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Later in my Excurions we went to Monaco. Wow, now this is a beautiful place where I would love to spend my life. Monaco was amazing, I love everything about it from the old stone building and mountain wall to the beachs and clear water to the canons and interesting history. While shopping in the dazzeling shops and gelaterias (a favorite pass time while walking), I came across this town square and little fortress like building. Unfortunitly my guide wasn't with me to tell me the history, but when I touched the walls of this fortress like building and these mesmerizing ancient canons I felt like I was in the old ages. These gorgious canons overlooked a beautiful view of its self, there were winding paths through gardens all the way down to a dock and beach. Monaco was breath taking!

Hi Zach...nice picture, good contrast and choice of B&W. You could try doing it in sepia also, it would give it an old feeling.
Thanks for sharing and for your great notes.

Very often, it is simply the final crop that makes or breaks a composition.
BW a good choice but a simple selection of what counts here can transform this?
Later today, much later today, a workshop alternative will appear. You judge then?
I mean - I could well be wrong. Has been known ;)

Hi Zach- I like the subjects for this photo and the choice of BW- nice angle to capture both the stack of cannon balls and the cannon-the WS from Kit is a good example how a crop can really focus your attention and make the image even more powerful- nice work on this one and a good accompanying note- keep up the good work!
Best wishes
