[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Know to be a prison nation this is one of the oldest gaols in Australia. The Old Melbourne gaol housed many notorious criminals some of which had most tragic tails. Row upon row of cells line these walls, with a sickening yellow light shining in from the roof top.

This is a repost. I adjusted the lighting, giving more detail to the shadowed areas, plus a little straightening.

wow, what a great symmetrical shot. Love this vantage point and the light coming in from the top. The people below offer a good sense of scale. Great shot Peter.
So this jail is no longer running as such?

Belle lumière dans ce lieu sinistre!

Bien cadré, belle perspective!!



well done !! nice colors !! TFS

Not the most inviting place...:)

The photo struck my eye because of its lighting. Excellent work.

Nice feeling of symmetry and good perspective as well!


A well known spot, this one. Good capture of the austere and forbidding construction and excellent capture of light.
I have a feeling that it's not quite vertical still, if we follow a line through the floor, the divider between the far windows, and the pitched roof?

Hello Peter

Great job on this image, I like POV and sharpness. TFS


HI Peter...nice shot...great tones and details...nice work.

Hi Peter

Excellent sharpness & superb use of diminishing linear perspective. I like the yellow vs blue colour contrast. Good framing, repetition, & pov. Tfs!

Wow Peter, great POV you had !!
This image is very good in many ways. The light, the perspective, the lines, the colors, the sharpness, the pov, the subject and the note are all good.
Very good job done.

Hi Peter
Wonderful capture and perspective
Great symmetry and light

Beautiful shot Pete, very proportioned and balanced. The lighting is spot on, and the people below give a good sense of scale. The light from the windows in the distance seem like 'the light at the end of the tunnel', quite relevant for this photo. Well done.


Hello Peter,

The gradual effect works wonders in this one. Light seems to be your favourite toything. Good one.
