I know that others have done this particular image. Thatís why I had to go see the place myself. eastern penitentiary is a fascinating place!! This was seven years ago, now, but I never entered this iconic shot in a challenge. Since itís an old photo, I couldnít try a different angle, etc., but I did my best to try to give the processing the attention it deserved.

I know itís a trite shot for those who have experienced it before. But I still remember the magic the first time I saw it captured by someone else on dpc. All I can hope is that my shot brought the same excitement to someone else. And while I wish I had played around with more angles at the time, Iím still glad to have the shot. And I think I may just have to include it in my next art show. (iíve tried three, so far)

Thanks for the comments!
