My first thought is that it was odd to see this type of graffiti on what appears to be a rural building, so it is an interesting and intriguing subject choice, I think. The picture is obviously off-center, so you have met the challenge, but it has a balanced feeling with the telephone poles and lines leading the eye to the other side of the frame.

The focus works well here, though I think I would like to see a little mroe detail in the building, but that is just a personal preference and I am not sure that it is possible.

I like the coloring, but if the sky wasn't so bland, I think it would be a neat shot in color, especially if the graffiti is in color. Technically, this is an excellent shot, I think, and is exposed well, etc.

Nice work, and best to you if future challenges.

If you have any comments or questions, please contact me.

Nice toning! The sky is quite grainy, but I think it adds to the mood in this case. - 8

I like this shot. Sky is dead with clouds like so often here in Oregon. Hate that but not a thing ya can do. This is a good shot, interesting to the eye with lots to look at. It's got lonely feel.

Nice tones. Where is this? it looks familiar. I would have cropped off the right side to get rid of the dark trees.
