Great black and white, conversion and processing, right out of an horror movie. Congrats on 8th place.

Nice photographic house you've picked here. Your view point is good and the black and white really suits. Congrats on your top ten finish.

Thanks for all the comments guys and gals. This is a little gem I found outside the Washington, DC area. The thought of creatively lighting it at night sounds interesting, but I'd be afraid to go back here at night. ;-) It wasn't posted, but I'm sure it's private property and in the DC area, anything suspicious really brings the cops out in force.

Love the processing looks so spooky!

Nicely composed and interesting location. I imagine this building has lots of potential for night and specially lit photos. 9.

nice B&W, though a tad too fake looking

Nice composition, for me though it has a weird processed feel to it - there appear to be splodges of light all over the boarding, almost arbitrarily, and having nothing to do with the feel of light in the rest of the scene, with the result that the image feels more like an illustration than a photograph.
