This image was taken on Fort Ord in Monterey Bay, California.

I know a couple other people from my school that will probably be entering this challenge because we live around SO MANY abandoned buildings! When I saw this challenge pop up here, I litarally laughed out loud.

I'm really please with the lighting during this shot. It was an overcast day but the sun peaked out for a moment before setting and thats when I captured this.

Stunning light and colors. I don't think it's over the top at all. That's your style, and you wear it well.

Looks a bit over processed, but that aside, I really like this composition. The one door being open and the broken- down steps add much to the appeal. AlsoI love that you can see the grain in the boarded-up windows...nice detail.

Some of the colors here look a bit oversaturated, but all in all, I like this shot.

Colors seem too strong - even the tree looks painted. (although, the colors of the trunk are kind of cool!)

The color in the tree really makes this shot, good work

the color is way to harsh and removes details that are critical to the image

I don't care for the lighting, and it seems slightly out of focus. But what totally is amazing is it almost looks like there is a skeleton in the grains of the tree trunk. That alone is fantastic.

the building is cool, but the tree has a 'figure" in it that looks scarier
