    It's nice to see a different take on the theme. I like the composition and the splash of colour, but find the pp a bit overdone.

    the double splash of yellow captures the eye

    An overwhelming sense of desolation enhanced by the amazing sky.

    Thumbnail looked amazing. Opening the image revealed a little to much saturation and artifacts (lines in the sky) I do not mind the glow around the trees, I actually like it. Composition is spot on. Also do not mind the distortion. In my TT

    I've only ever seen this from the trunk of a car :-) The grittiness of this shot works well. Well composed and right on theme.

    great subject, and I like the composition. The colour range is also impressive - but I'm not sure about the clouds though - are those sharpening artifacts? It is a shame as they detract from a really strong image.

    Reminds me of my childhood. Great building but the sky looks a bit odd(like it was painted). Maybe it was oversharpened.

    Great interpretation of the theme, but it's all a little too dark. Maybe a lower ISO would help.

    great job on post processing! the clouds look like waves from underneath the waves in the ocean,
definitely one of my top ten..... but not number one.....! ;)

    The sense of desolation and decay is complete here. One of my top favorites.

    A high fav. The bright yellow really pops against the dark background.

    Great colours! I like their contrast with the dark sky. The photo may be a little grainy, but it almost suits the run-down, neglected subject.

    I love this composition! The extremely saturated color and dramatic sky are very effective and probably needed, otherwise the image would appear too dark. It could still be brighter and perhaps show a little more shadow detail, however.

In order to get that dramatic sky, you've introduced too many artifacts. It' a fine line, but you've crossed it in my mind. This keeps it from being at the top of my favorites, although it's still one of my favorites.

    Great finding and composition. A bit too much contrast for my taste - but still my #1.

    Nice composition, might be more dramatic if you got lower down. I don't like the processing, colours seem quite unnatural.

    Very much like your choice of subject. Your processing adds interest, but the sky is a bit over-done and unnatural looking.
