Great subject. I would have tried a different crop. The chimney is almost cutting the picture in half.

I would love to see a shot of this scene done in the summertime with the contrasts in colors of the delapidated shack and the forest hues!

Nice photo. I would have liked to see the colors, but then again in the forrest area they might have been pretty dull. Good job.

good photo, nice detail and angle, i like how the leaves and other things are covering the broken building, makes a great feeling of being abandon
