    Not clear what this is without the title. Not enough context to help the viewer understand the scene.

    very interesting subject matter and excellent composition. This is about as 'gritty' as it gets.

    I really like the gritty atmosphere of your picture, conveys an ominous dark feeling to me. I really like your shot

    Love the viewpoint you have selected with the far corridor showing through the ladder. Lots of depth and a very descriptive image.

    A scene that likely could evoke many somber stories. Well-composed; like the color interplay of the bluish panel with the red rusted ironwork.

    Wonderfully composed with just the right amount of "grunge"!

    Very "nice". Interesting old feeling, nice colors. In my favorites.

    What a marvelous rendition of "Desolation Row". You have managed to capture the despair that went on inside these walls. Great job. High in my TT.

    Beautifully composed and taken - the detail is tremendous. The atmosphere you have created is absolutely desperate. At first glance, I thought the upended cart was a body - so the entire effect was chilling.

    I am jealous of this one. I love these photos of derelict buildings. In one photo you have done so well with the light so that all the photo is well exposed. Minute detail all over. The composition is excellent with the lines and the vanishing point. Well done. In my top 5.

    Interesting that their are two eye lines going in different directions -- up the stairs and down the hallway. In my favs.

    I love the perspective, textures, subtle color and the embedded emotional history of this place. Great shot.

    well framed and a sense of foreboding as to what happened here

    I instantly liked this one. The textures and the grotty, neglected surfaces. Creative composition looking though the stairs, with the light in the background all contribute to make this a terrific photograph.

    I like this a lot, so desolate and dilapidated yet so beautiful. In my TT.
