Greathouse Cellar, Whim Plantation

A quick post today of three images captured in the cellar of the Greathouse of Whim Plantation, St. Croix, US Virgin Islands. We will visit the Greathouse  and some of the other sights of the plantation in other posts.

Once outside the Greathouse, there was a self-guided tour which allowed for exploration of areas which most tourists would not think about visiting. In this case, the cellar provided some great photographic opportunities.

I have finished this series of images in black and white. The filtered light in the cellar actually made the original colored images have a rich tone which I did not think was appropriate for the subject matter. I have also added a dark sepia tone in Nik Silver Efex Pro as a finishing touch.
