I really like the dramatic sky. I would have preferred a slightly different crop, removing more of the foreground, and including more of the sky.

07/13/2008 12:56:46 PM
I'd like to see this in colour

very dramatic PP, well done on the b&w conversion!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/12/2008 06:25:05 PM
Gave you a 7, technically a great image (focus and exposure are right on), the distance to the house causes the weathering to be less obvious and I have never cared for the distortion caused by a wide angle lens.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/11/2008 07:48:03 PM
Wideangle view... check. Swoopy clouds... check. Old run down building... check.

This should do well.

very nice composition. I like the way that the school is trying to fade into the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice shot and levels.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/09/2008 01:57:00 AM
(This might just be the kiss of death...) I think this is the 'blue'. Let's see how close I get. I really like this- the clouds, the building, the composition. Great photo. I gave this a 10
