Found this burnt out building on the way back from north central Illinois and gave it a shot. I was already working on another idea when this one hit me in the 11th hour, so I only had three hours to process.

Definitely happy with the placement, can always wish it did better, but fun none the less.

Thanks for the comments everyone it was a last minute decision to add the doll because i felt is was missing something. As you can tell from the comments it was roughly a 50/50 feeling on the doll :) I'll post it again this week without the doll and see if you feel the same Oliver, ha.

Lovely image. I love the nostalgic whimsy of Raggedy Ann.

I love the pathos that the doll adds to this shot.

Like the image composition but would have preferred more contrast

One of my 2 faves on here, that light is amazing, and so is everything else about this image, all put together in a somewhat comical way, albeit, still giving me a warm feel to it. 10 and a verineat ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/110000-114999/114285/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/110000-114999/114285/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1014169.jpg', '/') + 1) .

Wonderful wreck, but Ann needs a bit of grunging, herself

Love it! Speaks to me on so many levels, all the way down to the frown on the poor dolly's face. The sunbeams highlighting her are a nice touch.

I love how this is framed, I feel like I'm looking through a window. What throws me off is the doll. It would have been a better fit if it was old and tattered and on the floor; instead of new looking and neatly posed.

Oh wow! I love the light! And the addition of Raggedy Ann is wonderful!
