This shot is of an old warehouse in my town that also served as a Halloween haunted house before they shut it down for good. Picture was taken as the sun was setting, and I liked the contrast of thesimilar building elements. The diagonal roof and window lines had a good flow to them I thought. I wish I could have done more with the bottom and not cropped the lines so tight, but the roof had a nasty gutter transition. Let me know what you think.

how about going a warm b&w with a soft focus.

artistic shots like this have a wide avenue of appeal.

if you'd like, i can give you a few quick examples with work flow.

Sure. I'm open for suggestions. Show me what you got :)

my first suggestion, though i went for more sepia.

i used heavy shadow and lightened focus on the back building, not to hide it, but to

emphasize the building in the foreground.

i like the way the buildings went from metalic to a more "wood" feel, giving them a more

antique feel, which it just happens to be what i wsa going for here.


hope you like it.

you mentioned athe sun setting, so i made it more aparent.

once again i left the building in the background in shadow, but did not soften focus. i

did not think it necessary, for the color intensity of the building in the foreground is

striking enough to create it's own emphasis.

plus i got rid of a few small distractions. :roll:

the edits look nice and emphasize the diagnal lines of the roofs..

Very nice. All three of them.

If I could only get my hands on that nice window of stained glass though. Would look neat in my house.

Yeah, there were several neat stained glass windows I would have loved to gank. It's a neat old building. As for the edits, I'm not too crazy about the first one. I like the effect you did I just don't know if I like it on this shot. The second image is cool, and would make for a nice abstract print. Appreciate the suggestions, I'm going to try the techniques on a few other shots and see what I get.
