|The forgotten hospital (11) by Silvia Stella|
Great use of light contrast and space in this image. The eyes get drawn straight to the window, and then
explore outward. Once they reach the edges, which are dark, the eyes return to the window.
|The Gathering by Ron Pinkerton|
Another great example of light contrast--also subtle color contrast. I like the repeated circles.
|Untitled by Fp4shooter|
I really like the desolate, harsh feeling of this image. It's understandable why this trailer was abandoned.
|Geometry homework done. A+ by Szydlak likes Abandoned Places|
This is a simple photograph of a complex design. What stands out to me is the color contrast.
|the hall of dreams by potosi6088m|
This photograph has great atmosphere and excellent light contrast. I like the simplicity of a single
chair in a large empty room.
|School For Girls 4 by Charles Bodi|
Clouds can transform a good scene into a great one. Very nice lighting.
|The Windmills of Your Mind... by FanFan Babii or just plain Buffan|
I like the perspective of this image--the low angle with the purple flowers in the foreground. The trees do a good job of forcing the viewer's attention towards the structure.
