This shot was taken out by Fielding, UT. I have visited this old building many times. It appears in various shots in my portfolio, as well as on my office wall at work in a 12x36 panorama. I am drawn to it. I shot this on a stormy day in October. I arrived at the location about an hour before sunset with my son and started setting up to shoot. I had two opportunities to get some dramatically lit shots. This shot was taken literally seconds before the sun crested over the horizon. I fell lucky to have been there at that time.

The starkness of this image is very appealing. Great play of light and shadows.

A lovely dramatic sky to adorn the remnants of crumbling stone. Top 30 is still good! Nice work.

effective...but I wonder if the mountain cutting into the building is distracting the viewer.

Lovely colors and great clouds. I would have liked to have seen the horizon and building more strait by rotating the canvas a few degrees in photoshop and then cropping.

Lovely complimentary colors. I might crop a tad more on the right so that the delapidated building isn't quite so centered. Other than that - a gorgeous vista!! Love the perspective and the golden light.
