Built in 1882 and still functioning as a City Hall in the "Town To Tough to Die."

Good Luck All

Very nice Norm, a lot of history threw those doors, I would like to see the crop at the bottom more level it is just a little distracting.

Thanks Norm, I cropped a different image. The problem is that building is on sloping ground, as is much the town of Tombstone.

I agree about cropping out the scene left and right, going vertical, but not that tight to the bottom. Needs a little room. Might look really nice in B&W too.

Travis and Norm,

Sorry but I can't incorporate both of your suggestions.. I don't have enough at the bottom to work with. I may return to Tombstone and retake the shot.

I agree about the crop. You might also consider a slightly wider aperture. I've read that, with digital sensors at least, an aperture over 9.0 or so can actually reduce sharpness.

If you do revisit the scene, maybe go at a time when the sun isn't casting shadows on the building too?

Well, I found another image that I have cropped to address various concerns but this is my last submission. Thanks for all the suggestions.
