This was taken with my old p&s. I have more shots on film, but it's not developed yet so not sure if they came out any better than this one did. (This was just before I got my new DSLR and I haven't used the film camera since.)

This is the fence behind all the ritzy places in Newport,Rhode Islandthat abut the cliff walk. This path used to be a narrow, sometimes dirt path that went right off the side of the cliff in some spots. It was quite a surprise for us to find this nice path and the fancy fence this summer when we visited.

Beautiful..they have really made some changes to the cliff walk...I think it was out of necessity for the safety of those who used it, but it really lost some charm.

Nice view. It's too bad you didn't have a clear blue sky to complement the walls and fences. Something you might want to try is to mask out the sky and drop in a graduated blue sky. We don't condone that for posting in the forum but you might be surprised at what you can do with it.

Thanks, vsch1 and Cal. Yes, it has lost some of the charm and I do miss it. But, I do much prefer the wider walkway being safer. Especially now with my vertigo. I would never have been able to walk it now with the old path.

Yes, Cal. We did pick a horrible day to go. But, we'd put off the trip so many times decided to go anyway. I will try to replace the sky as you suggested. It would probably improve the photo immensely.
