Default Remnant of Life Under Communism

Just arrived back at home here in central Finland from a visit to Latvia. Was so surprised to see that many apartments have not changed all that much from when Latvia was under communist occupation 22 years ago. I think this staircase sort of says it all.

Wow, that really illustrates the descent into the depths of gloom and despair.

What does the original, unedited photo look like?

Thanks for your kind comments.

Here is the original... remember it is taken with a mobile phone. The original was very, very green, like green everything. I used Topaz to create the effect that I did.

The effect makes a dull image into something quite interesting, nice job, I like it
