Taken at the Philly GTG today. The tower is atop a hill and is 110 feet high. Great day for the views from up there but it was so windy I could barely breathe! The tower is a reconstruction of an edifice used in the Colonial times and was built in 1930 (with an elevator, though that may have been added later).

Shooting wide was interesting...I always zoom to crop in camera and I almost entered another scenic from the tower that was show at 47mm! This, however was shot at 8mm.

Post: Layer adjustments for levels (50% opacity), brightness/contrast and hue/saturation (both 75% opacity). USM. Resize. USM. After uploading I a hot spot in the middle, so I unsubmitted, clone out the hot spot, and resubmitted this one.

Generally flat and lacking contrast... too much green!

I've seen the view from there -- just a wonderful place. You've done a great job at capturing the pastorial feel of Bucks.
