Post your outtakes from the Abandoned Buildings II challenge here.

I think some of these may have scored a bit better, I'd be interested in some feedback on them.

This one is the same image I entered, but without the skew:

This shot probably would have worked better with a wideangle lens.

Maybe people would have recognized this as a building?
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/208/120/636584.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/0-4999/208/120/636584.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

It's the same building as my entry:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/803/120/632748.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/803/120/632748.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I'm thinking I should have gone with a fuller shot of the building, but I preferred the textures of the one I used, although I did like the lighting and framing of this one.

My wife said to use this one... maybe I should have listened to her ;)
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/88479/120/632113.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/88479/120/632113.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This one could have done better too
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/88479/120/632104.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/85000-89999/88479/120/632104.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

As for the guy who complained about the levels :rollseyes: None of the levels were adjusted (I tried fiddling with it a few times but nothing turned out better than the original)

I prematurely posted this during the challenge and got slapped on the hand (still learning). I'm not sure it would have done well anyway. The lighting wasn't cooperating and to get a decent angle, I would have had to stand in the middle of a busy street. So I went yellow.

I wish I had time to go out and shoot for this however it wasn't in the cards.

There's nice old barns and sheds like this all over the countryside near where I live:

Old building are one of my favorite subjects to shoot. Oh well... maybe next time or in a free study I guess.

Here are 3 of mine. I think 1 or 2 of them might of scored higher than my entry, but I don't like them as much.

There's some really great shots in this challenge, I think. And some good outtakes on this thread. Abundant old mining sites in my area, just chock full of colorful old buildings. Wanted to enter this one, but was already into another challenge. Wish I would have, in retrospect. This old building just really appealed to me. Oh, well. Had fun shooting it. (I'm new to this, so it's all still very much a learning curve. I'm learning a lot here, many thanks to the comments and forums!) Peace, Love, and Happiness, The Old Coyote

Here are two other shots from the same building.

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/56502/120/638620.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/56502/120/638620.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Probably would have done better than this (well, not too difficult with 239 out of 250):

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/803/120/632505.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/0-999/803/120/632505.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

To me it was a bit of a surprise that the commenters found the branches distracting. Good to see the viewpoints of others; I can see what they mean.

I actually liked the branches. They added to the abandonded feeling nicely. Sort of a foreground bokeh (almost).

Thanks for your comment. Actually that's how I looked at it too.

But looking at it again after the comments I could also see their point. Without the middle branch across the picture it might have been better. Basically all it would take is to bend the knees a bit so that the branches are more surrounding the windows, the middle one then being at the top. Next time ...
