I love this picture. The converging vertical lines are great and black and white works perfectly.

must have been a strong old house a one time

Nice Idea, good shot

... but it doesn't seem having a lot left! :)
04/19/2004 03:34:08 PM
cool perspective
04/19/2004 12:23:57 PM
Nice idea, amazing sky.
04/18/2004 05:03:31 AM
Very nice B&W. I absolutely love that sky.
04/17/2004 08:31:40 PM
What a compelling image! I'm at a loss for words, but nice shot. 7.
04/16/2004 07:00:14 PM
to me it looks like it doesn't have much strength left!
04/16/2004 05:40:19 PM
But, how much longer? It's a very good picture. The black and white make it more
dramatic than colour would. The clouds have a strange structure. Almost as if painted.

Here is a shot I wish I took and had in my portfolio of photos.

What a great picture...no flaws at all...10
04/16/2004 05:32:46 AM
Blimey! Does the house really look like that, or did you use some funky lens? Either way, jobsagoodun! The B&W totally suits the subject matter, the sky is suitably dramatic, composition and focus all in check... very interesting and arresting image - if there's any justice in the world this will be at least a top 10 finisher. go you! 10

Very nice exposure and lighting / contrast here. I see this more as weakness than strength, but I can see the connection.
04/15/2004 04:13:14 PM
This is a really interesting photo - and you've captured just the right kind of sky to go along with the house. The color balance is great. I like how the image makes you wonder if the house is in a state of "weakness" instead of a state of "strength," and how you can't really tell. This gets my top vote for the week, along with one other photo.

Awesome abandoned house. Great shot!
04/15/2004 01:52:26 PM
heh! Cool shot ... this one might even look good in color too with a deep blue sky. Well done! -9
04/15/2004 01:13:30 PM
.... I just love this photo. Nice!
04/15/2004 12:05:33 PM
Doesn't look very strong anymore... but an awesome picture nonetheless.
04/15/2004 11:49:16 AM
Wow! Look at the shapes and angles within this image. A fantastic black and white, excellent composition, one of my very faves for this challenge. Good luck
04/15/2004 11:04:23 AM
This picture is absolutely awesome! Like old horror movie or something hehe :) Where did you find that house man, hope I can see more pictures of this hpuse after the challenge, and in color too, Good job - 10
04/15/2004 09:54:11 AM
Fantastic 10
04/15/2004 07:33:59 AM
Surrealistic capture. Great look in B&W
04/15/2004 01:43:55 AM
Oh but it's weird and wonderful. :) I like this strange weather beaten place. Love the sky too. Congrats.
04/15/2004 12:41:14 AM
Your strenght is falling apart,but nice fisheye photo,7.
04/15/2004 12:22:49 AM
very cool photo - seems more like ghost of strength past . . .
04/14/2004 09:50:26 PM
Nice. The B&W choice is very good in this picture.
04/14/2004 08:31:08 PM
Fantastic shot! Great subject, perfect conditions, right on! 10
04/14/2004 06:38:24 PM
I love the overall feel of this. Works well in B&W.
04/14/2004 05:32:41 PM
Unusual building, nice composition, moody sky works well
04/14/2004 05:15:44 PM
this wide angle image makes it look even more sideways!!!!
04/14/2004 04:58:07 PM
More like strength of gravity. Good one. 8
04/14/2004 01:58:18 PM
That's a really nice photo! It's sort of saying the opposite of strength, by my interpretation, but I understand your point.
04/14/2004 01:49:22 PM
looks like it would collapse with the slightest gust of wind. i like the perspective and nice b+w tonal range. great shot overall, i'm just not feeling strength from it.
04/14/2004 01:02:17 PM
I see a ribbon. This is my favorite!!!
04/14/2004 12:22:26 PM
Nice shot. There seems to be little 'strength' left in this old home...
04/14/2004 06:40:51 AM
04/14/2004 02:18:58 AM
Superb lighting and composition. What a marvelous idea. My only wish would be to see a little more in the foreground, to make it seem like it was falling into the sky.
04/14/2004 12:53:27 AM
i like the idea and I could tell the story.....nice composition....I like the way the clouds forms...nice capture...9
