Fine and evocative images. As Harald had noted in response to your previous post, they almost look like they've been finely drafted in pencil, or lithographs.
Is there a Florida Historical Society that might be interested in displaying your images, or publishing them?
Thanks for sharing.

Again, a marvelous set, Roger!
My personal favorite is #2 - which really seems to have fallen out of time - one wonders what October that has been on the sign. The PP is stunning!

TVMFS!

Yeah number 2 is great. Love how it's supposed to reopen in October, don't know whether to quietly chuckle or hold back a tear. I think the scratches on the first image work very well, too, they're placed perfectly in the sky. A very fine set!
I detest bugs, especially spiders.

Thanks Rodger for the really stunning #2! What a deep story told in such a perfect simplicity... I imagine it printed out at the wall of some very serious exhibition, wheather historic or photographic.

It could get even greater if you try a tiny crop from the left (7pix at the current resolution is just enough) to get rid of some unnecessary details just at the border.

I already cropped a bit off the left but did not want to cut into the roof line of the shed in the background. However, that white piece of "fence" is a bit of a distraction so I see what you mean. Another option, if that "fence" is what you are concerned with, is for me to darken it via burning. I will give that a try.

Nope, not that much... Everything is OK! Just 7 pixels off from the left side of the full 1055pix width. For me it somehow makes a worthwhile difference.
