I think I would have liked this much better if it had been in B/W. I think color is great for nature and portraits, but I don't believe it helps this type of shot at all.

Like how you placed a person in the picture. I found most of the pictures uninteresting because they didn't have people in it. Good job.

This is a great photo, should have scored a lot higher. You can feel the desolation and loneliness, even in broad daylight. This apparent contradiction makes it a very interesting photograph. I gave it an 8 and I'm glad 21 other people did.

The photo is fine except that it's boring - no offense. I think it would have had much more potential shot from a more dynamic angle.

The distortion seems to add some speed, or some flow to the photo. Interesting effect.
The photo, like the title says, breathes 'abandoned'. The dark holes of the windows, the closed entries at ground level, ther empty tarmac, the empty sky (no clouds), trees without leafes.... The girl's only companion seems to be her shadow. 8

I like this shot. It seems lacking in something but at the same time it seems to have something special in it that makes me like it. The subject of the photo seems to be the person (although we know it's the building) which is placed pretty close to the center of the image, but the composition is still pretty nice. I really like the colors here, and all the textures.
