I like the first shot. It really gives the feel of decay rathar than just dirt. How is 2 in colour?
Thanks for posting,

here is #2 in color, if it was anything but black graffiti I would ahve probably done a little post work and left it color...But here it is just resized for the web.

Without intending to insult anyone from the greater Detroit area, this does look like the Detroit I saw when I visited some years back. I am quite sure that there some beautiful suburbs somewhere not far away, but this is how I remembered it.

Nicely captured, interesting subjects and lighting. Some seem a little flat though, have you applied any levels to these?

Nice, brave too, is that building west of I-75 and just north of I-94 that goes to metro? I just took my son back to the airport, in the first part of Januaray, and past a big factory with graffiti on it like that. I thought myself, it would make some good pictures. Thanks for sharing, on top of the factory I seen, was like a little second floor building, it almost looks like that is where you are standing.

Yes Detroit is on its way back...but its very slow and coming. The title was kind of in light of all the improvments that are being done to make it look like its not a 95.62% rundown city. Things such as improvments just b/c the superbowl is coming here in a month and not b/c the city needs the improvments anyway. Kind a bunch of bandaids insted of fixing things the way they should be fixed.

Also yes all the levels are changed around...Im thinking that a few do however need a big more contrast...Thats for your replies!
