This is actually two photographs. The core is the ruins of a grist mill I visited this morning in Buchanan on Purgatory Creek. The view in the windows was just so yucky I thought it ruined the otherwise interesting shot, so I improvised. :-)

I cut out the windows and copied & pasted the view from one of my other shots in the holes. I like the result.

Like this a whole lot better than the day version, would probably look good as a cover of a vampire book or something in that genre. All I think is missing would be a sinister character in the lower right corner and voila! Good job on the PP, looks very nice and no way to really know this was two photos.

Great shot Jimmy!!! The colors are spectacular. Very creative job with the window. Only nitpick is the edge of the window (particularly lower window, right side) seems a little soft. Maybe a little heavy with the feathering on your selection.

Wow Jimmy this is beautiful. I love the textures of the walls and the old vs new the upper walls have with the lower walls. And the moon and clouds?!?! Wow! Great photo.

The bricks look way too bright compared to the moon in the background for me, even if it is supposed to be a long exposure- because then the moon would be blown out. I think if you burned a lot, (especially around the edges) and added the slight blue cast to the building, you could make your trick-trickery a bit less obvious. Otherwise a good look!

Good improv. You could have fooled me, but then I'm a sucker for anything with a moon in it.
