You've done a great job of controlling balance in this shot. The building would have really "overweighted" the right part of the image but your decision to include the RR tracks balances it nicely. The sky adds interested both in texture and color as well as accentuating the (other wise too) subdued color of the rest of the shot. Really well done.

Great perspective. I really like the clouds in the sky, and the way you worked in the railroad to the lower left.

Bleak. Forlorn. Good composition. The blue sky works great to provide some cheer in contrast.

Great shot. Gorgeous skies, the railway lines leading the eye, and the large tiered building with plenty of smashed windows for interest and to convey abandonment. Excellent stuff and great job on the pp.

Superb. Nothing I would change, save perhaps who could take credit for it!
