Old Locks vs New Locks

I went out this morning to shoot some images for the "lock" challenge. Being near the Erie canal I knew of a few old lock ruins that were close PLUS they are close to the current active canal. When I got back and processed the images I actually liked the non cropped images of the old canal better than the new one canal.

These old canals are over a 100 years old and the doors have long since been scrapped or fallen off so all that is left is the old granite sides. I caved to conventional wisdom and entered the "new" lock door instead of the beautiful old carved rock sides.

The color uncropped image is nice with fall leaves but the challenge rules were B & W and 1600 X 1600.
