Not a terribly artsy title, is it? But I thoroughly enjoyed seeing this place, or what's left of it, and all the stairways leading to dark and empty places. It's an old battery out at Fort Washington. The fort dates back to 1809 in various incarnations, but it's been a park since 1946, with a whole slew of buildings of various ages and states of preservation. And cannons, which are fired by reenactors in the summer. A place worth exploring.

PP - slight crop, tonemapped in qtpfsgui (pregamma 0.697, mantiuk method, contrast mapping 0.1, saturation factor 1.029, detail factor 1), merged with original in luminousity mode at 10% transparency, white balance, increased contrast, dodged/burnt some details, resized, sharpened, added more noise.

Beautiful photo, too subtle perhaps to grab the contemporary art kudos, but I love it.

this is a REALLY cool location, although i'm not sure if its 'fine art'.

love the textures (although feels somewhat oversharpened)
