Thanks so much for deeming this a favorite of yours.... Unfortunately, not having grown up in the milling business, I have no idea what the top building is used for.

Thanks again

Just wanted you to know that this was my favorite submission this week. I've been dying to know what that little building on the top is used for :)

I like the tinting, and this is a neat interpretation of the "corner" element of the challenge. Nicely done!

Sepia? It works here, just curious....I don't really know what to say, plus or minus, sorry. 7? Swash

that's super cool, you picked exactly the right spot to shoot from.

the sepia tones and the shut doors give me a feeling of abandonment, or being closed down. has the mill indeed been closed?

challenge met -- yes
appeal / composition -- because of the upwards angle this shot feels a little lopsided, although i realize it isn't actually. nice photo, although not the most riveting topic for me personally.
technical -- good
overall -- 6

I am rating this shot lower becuase this scene is not specific to your corner of the world. I can see the same setting here is CA. It is more unique than other submissions so I give you a 7

Wires spoil your photo. Good DOF. JEM

Nice shot. The sepia tone works great for this.
09/23/2002 08:01:00 PM
The sepia tones seem to treat this right. Good job! DPz

This is nice. I would have liked it better though if the main corner was perpendicularwith the photo's bottom border.

The coloring on this gives it an antiquated feeling i think. karmat
09/23/2002 02:43:00 PM
Very nice. reminds me of one of my own...

09/23/2002 01:42:00 PM
Different. I like it. Good luck...score 8 Justine

Why pink? I like it pink but I wondered what the reason is.
