About the Image(s)

I stumbled across this opportunity one morning when I has heading for the Fish Pier to capture the sun coming up. The Army Base, at least this part of it looks very much the way it did more than 50 years ago when I left for the Marines. I used my Nikon D5300 with a 50mm prime lens. ISO 200, 1/60 at f/4.8. It was handheld.
I like the image very much, but it seems to lose some detail along some of the buildings edges. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your service in the Marines. I am not really seeing a lack of detail. I think going B&W was a good idea. I would crop off the crosswalk at the bottom. To me it does not add to the image and works like a "roadblock" to keep the eye from entering the image.   Posted: 11/12/2020 09:53:27

I wondering your post photo is same as original. Seems to me the original shown the camera shooting point is on right side of street and the center dash line is different. I more
like the posted one in B/W. I agree Tom's comment to crop off the crosswalk at the bottom. If want to keep, I would use the "Transform-Distort" to correct the cross walk lines, because they are not in level. Also I would do some adjustment on building vertical and horizontal lines in right position.   Posted: 11/22/2020 20:37:03

Your image is quite interesting with all the repetitive lines and shapes. I see what you mentioned about loss of detail around the edges - one area that stands out is the roof line on the left before Terminal 1. The lane markers in the streets are different.   Posted: 11/24/2020 16:53:42
