Something about this shot just amazes me. Then again, I've always loved all things old west and ghost townish. :) Congrats!

I thought and thought about the title, and hoped that noone would find it offensive.

I decided to keep the title because it is a picture of what some consider a proud history, and as such the title is appropriate to the picture. It's a title for this picture, not a statement about what happened in history.

Nice B&W. There are a few areas I would have liked to see a bit sharper, however it is very good overall and should score quite high.

I really like the wagon. I find the cabin a little distracting--I think you should have shown more of it or none.

Great B & W tones in this photo. Looks fantastic. Well done!

nice shot - like the black and white, hope it does well :)

Your title is needed to get the message across. I like the photo. If the wagon was the concept, less of the cabin would not hurt, close crop.

Great old west shot. I love the buckboard. The perspective, looking up and out is nice for the building and sky around it.
