This photo was taken at 6:57pm while between buildings in Downtown Durham. The sun had set behind another building, putting the whole area into shade.
To take the shot, I squatted down in front of this old abandoned tobacco warehouse. My intent was to focus on the chain hanging from the metal lid while adding perspective to how things look from down below.

Like the original angle, overall color and texture. The bottom right corner from where the steps lead out just seems a bit overpowering and your intent on the chain didn't come out. If I hadn't read your comments, I wouldn't have really picked it up.

(BTW, appreciate your feedback on my entry).

I like the unusual angle. I also like the detail, colors, texture, ... and yes the perspective. Among my top picks this challenge.
