These are great! You have successfully captured the "mood" of the place, and a ghost as well...Very Nice!

I agree with the above... but your third photo, too me, is the most fanstastic. I think you should enlarge it and print it. Would look nice hanging up and not forgotten... Also, stick it in your portfolio!

You really are working hard and doing great things with your camera! You certainly spark a lot of interest with your friends in forum. Keep up the good work.

really nice mood you have set here vv. #3 is an exceptional image and part of a very strong set, and i like seeing #1 first as it sets a nice ambiance and stage for the rest of the pics.

my only advice would be to watch the color artifacting on the floor in #4. looks like the hdr mismapped some reds in the rubble which distracts me a bit.

Thanks, all, for your kind comments!

Yes, Hards80, I see the reds in #4. I thought that was the least sharp in the series and thought maybe it’s caused by misalignment in the five images. I used a tripod and remote shutter release but sometimes I hear the lens re-focusing between shots especially in too dark or too bright scenes, which causes misalignment. I probably needed to pin-warp #4 some more in DPHDR.

The “ghost” in #6 was an accidental shot. My daughter walked into the frame and just stood there unaware that I was taking a 30-second exposure.

Three more pics:

#7) I was wondering what was in the rooms in #4 so I took this shot.


#8) The floor has detached itself from the wall due to the weight of the couch, I guess, so we had to walk very carefully.


#9) Another view to show the coffin is unused.

These are as gripping as they are disturbing. You've captured something very real in these pictures.

As a side note, I wonder what the radiation warning on the side of the building is about.
