The darkness creates a wonderfully powerful brooding feeling...

I love the somber feel to this, but I have to agree that it could be a little brighter.

Lovely photo Bob. The color treatment is terrific, and the road really gives a terrific sense of depth.

Bob, I wondered if this was yours during voting, as I think I've seen that building in one of your shots before. No matter, I think it was vastly underrated. I was one of your 7's. Beautiful moodiness and b/w conversion.

I remember this church from another shot of yours. I still like the power line. In this shot it sort of feels like it is a kite string, and that the church would blow away if it weren't restrained. And it looks like a good hard blow is imminent. I love the perspective of the road vanishing in the distance.

Serious suck spirit, Bob. Stormy weather. Excellent atmosphere.

Too bad this scored low - I would have expected higher for this one. I love the road leading past the church and into the horizon. Looks like such a lonely and desolate place.

That thing is so cool. I'm digging your composition here. And I like how it's tethered like a dog without an owner.

A few small quibbles with this, but I like it so much, power line and all.

Nice darkness to this. Moody and austere.

You should look at the art of Edward Hopper (or perhaps you already did)...he has many similar images. Very nice light balance

This reminds of a photo on here called simple faith. I like the compostion and the dreary clouds play to the mood of the old church

too much tristesse, IMO

Could clone out the wire.

A little too dark. Needs more detail in shadows.

Wonderful shot, nice eerie feeling. I may have cloned out the power lines though.
