    i was worried by your quote about the challenge taking to the unsavory part of town i am pleased you found this at your work site . have you found out what it is yet??

    Thanks Jade O, I actually tried cloning out the grate, but I didn't like the result, took away some depth from the image, I felt.

And thanks again for offering to be my bodyguard :-)

    Saw your note. Now I understand the stairs. Also saw your outtakes. This is the best view. But the lack of context bothered me quite a bit since I couldn't figure out what I was looking at. It looked so surreal it seemed "faked". Not sure if I could have suggested any better way to present this that what you did here. It is a striking image.

    Mariac, thank you very much for your kind comments. I really appreciate it!

    I love the colors, the textures, the perspective. It evokes something ancient, like a fortress in the desert. My top choice, I am very surprised it did not score better.

    I like the composition, simplicity and the texture and coloration in the cement. My top three.

    the lack of scale makes this a really interesting picture.
lovely colours and tones.

    I've no idea how big this is but it looks huge. A concrete monstrosity that you have captured so well I actually like it :-)

Feb 15, 2015
    Hard to work out the scale of this object. Are those steps on the bottom left? If so, this place is huge!

    slab concrete never seem to look pretty but the colours have managed to give some life. weather the tin roof left hand side was needed?
what was on the other side of the building

    For such a simple structure, this has a lot going for it. Great composition and detail, and the cloudy blue sky provides a beautiful backdrop

    Jade O, I know you won't see this response during the voting period. But the "stairs" to the left is NOT some artifact of post processing. It is a metal grating that acts as a vent to the space below.

    Show ALL post processing? You'll need to explain the "stair" on the lower left. An effective composition but I wonder what this really is?

Feb 14, 2015
    very artistic!

Feb 14, 2015
    Elegant simplicity - an imposing monolithic quality to the design.

Feb 14, 2015
    Theme - 5
Technical - 5 Like the texture and color detail in the concrete
Composition - 5 Like the perspective, overall composition, interesting lines and shape
Originality - 5 Abstract
Overall Impression - 5 Instant favorite. Like the simplicity.

    I like the simplicity of this photo shot from an interesting angle. The roof bottom left tends to draw my eye from the main subject but a very pleasing image overall.

Feb 12, 2015
    I like the simplicity of this picture. Nice clarity and contrasts.
