I like the wide angle but I am not too big on the fish eye look.

interesting pix. use of fish eye ok, but towers bowing kind of distracting. blacks good, whites need work.

Doesn't scream abandoned, but will assume that it is.
The curvature is a bit of an uneasy feeling for me on this one.
Good tone used.

Looks beautiful, but it doesn't look abandoned to me.

i really like everything about this picture except the fact that it was taken with a fisheye/wideangle lens. the fisheye effect doesn't seem fitting to me for this type of picture.

I doesn't appear to be abandoned, not saying that it's not.

Good contrast but I'm a little distracted by the wide angle effect.

Very nice contrast, but I'm personally not fond of the curvature.

I'm sorry, but this just doesn't look abandoned - what a beautiful structure! :-/

Very dramatic, but don't care for the curvature and most importantly - it may be abandoned, but it sure does not appear to be.

I don't personally like the fisheye effect in this.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/15/2005 10:55:56 PM
I don't think the fisheye works well for this. I like the building though and you did a good job balancing the light trim with the darker brick.

Very nice photograph in b&w. Like the unusual perspective. Excellent focus. This building looks like it just too new, to be called abandoned. You did too good a job with this photograph for me to visualize it as abandoned. Perhaps a little closer shot of the windows, if they boarded up. Great photogrpah!

The look of this building seems too splendid to be abandoned, nice photo nevertheless....

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 10:19:15 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 08:05:46 PM

  Photographer found comment helpful.

Interesting church. I'm not sure if I like the round effect to this picture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Gasp! Is that beautiful building abandoned????? Who would leave such an architectural masterpiece abandoned. Your picture is just gorgeous! I LOVE the cepia tones!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 02:21:07 PM
I like the subject of the picture, but the distortion is just too much for me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 01:13:29 PM
Very moody pic. Good clarity of detail. Like the contrast. Fisheye lens?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great shot. Good luck. 7.

I don't know if you used a fish eye on this or it was just your lens you can correct this with transform perspective in photoshop if that was not the case.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 10:44:12 AM
Nice picture, but it doesn't look very abandoned - is it really?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/13/2005 07:11:09 AM
I like how you printed this image although I think is a tiny bit dark. The distortion of the building works against the image. (opinion)

A beautiful building, nice shot and you certainly get a plus for using a fisheye lens!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is a very nice shot, but I am sorry, nothing about it says 'abandoned' to me -- looks in better shape than most active churches around here.

04/13/2005 12:26:07 AM
Nice WA effect here -- def works with the towers!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I have a hard time believing this is abandoned from this shot
