Yes, most of the camps along this stretch of water were knocked off their pilings by Katrina and turned into toothpicks.

a well composed shot and one of the beter I have looked at with a scenic view. The photo looks a little OoF but I bet thats due to the resize for this challenge. Altho I am not fond of the shot I find it fits the chalenge well, its pleasing to the eye, has color (which is rare for this challenge), and is wel composed. Well done and cgood luck with this challenge. <8>

This photo is beautiful. It is a great image and would have been great with out the beautiful sunset even but you captured it perfectly. A nice perspective from some of the other entries.

Beautiful composition and color. Like the title. Bumping it up to 8.

The colors in this picture are lovely and soothing. Rather than portraying a desperate and decaying building, it gives the sense that this one is just "sleepy" :-)

Oh wow! This is awesome! What a mood it conveys. Abandoned and run-down, yet beautiful as well! Excellent job!

Good choice for title. I like that the colors in the sky are reflected in the water. Nice lighting, good angle, interesting choice of subject.
