LOVE LOVE LOVE it. It's funny, because I keep coming up with criticism, like "it's too dark" or "it's too busy" but then I realize that it is probably those factors that makes the picture so captivating. Nice work. :)

Hiya! that was my kind of thinking too, I was worried that it is very busy, and there are lots of shadows, but I think it kind of gets away with it...just!

Many thanks for your comments, was worried I may have lost the knack

I like this. It reminds me of a scene from Great Expectations.

Very cool shot. I love the muted saturation. And what a cool room with the blooming vine taking over. Nice.

What an amazing looking place to be abandoned, both figuratively and literally. To have created this image in your mind's eye alone is impressive but to have gone ahead and captured it, even more so.

oh gosh im overwhelmed, thankyou so much for all your lovely comments, I am my worst critic and find it extremely difficult to produce an image I am happy with....this comes close :-)

The building is actually a derelic asylum, an extremely spooky place, empty wards, operating theaters, ballrooms, endless hallways, churches....alas it is to be no more now as its being knocked down for houses to be built...there was so much more I wanted to do there, It would have made a perfect location for some nude shots

Many Thanks again for your lovely comments, they mean so much to me thankyou :-)

Can you share the PP technique? Is it saturation and contrast, or tons more work than that?
