Our model is Emi in 2006. This is the second of three images from this series - one of many I've captured among the old World War II positions in The Marin Headlands above The Golden Gate over the years.

Wonderfully done Stephen. I like the decay at the bottom of the steel doors. I bet that's an interesting place to have a look around.

Perfectly exposed again with excellent tonal range. None of the highlights have lost any detail at all.
