or what is left of it, only heard about this place this week and it is only 10 miles from where i live. it was used as a training site for the Australian Flying Corp during WW1 24 of who died here during training. they are buried in military graves in the local cemetery and are always remembered on Anzac day. i saw some pictures from 11 months ago and a lot of equipment was still here so the vultures have been around.

You've explored around and revealed it well ... No 2 is my favourite with its good exposure control and the flash of light in the top. This might have been a candidate for some upwards pointing fill -flash, just to reveal a little more inside.

thanks for comments, not a lover of flash Nigel , i metered for outside and just lifted shadows in pp. may have to revise my feelings on flash as i intend to do a project 52 using Village church interiors as a subject but must admit i will use exposure bracketing (HDR) even then before i reach for the flash.

I like these - it looks like an interesting place
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.
