Thanks for all the comments - from both sides of the fence.
Well worth the trip up Kent - with some great alternative mountain grade roads inland if you want to take it easy and avoid the RVs lumbering along Highway 1.
I was perhaps trying too hard to avoid the historical theme park postcard / record shot view so did not provide a very balance coverage - that's just they way I was seeing that day.
For the cannons I had pre-visualized the large format look - Roger Fenton ?
I like that shot of the cemetery in the mist - something that is very suiting to the location.
As alternatives to the narrow depth of field I did also take some stitched panoramas showing the Fort and Bay.
