Last day... so I went out to find something that was abandoned.

Settled on this.

I hope you like it.

It's definitely abandoned.

My title was complicated at first, 'cause I wanted to say something specific:

Everyone has a "Before" whatever... It's the "After" that Counts.

But, then... those titles never do well, do they?

And I think my simple one still conveys my message.

May I just say that... I HATE having to come up with a title and that leaving it blank should be an option... I mean this is a photography contest, right... not a literary contest?

I may not? Okay.

Nevermind then. :D

Nicely found and captured. I love the way you have handled the colors -- lovely muted blues, greens and red. You have made it sing while showing restraint by not pushing it too far.

I get what you are saying about titles. I agree an option to leave it blank would be nice. Part of me thinks a good image should be able to stand on its own. Yet for some strong images a good title can add context or strengthen an emotional connection. I do envy some folks here that seem to be able to generate creative, thought provoking titles with ease. At times, the best I can musters is "The ________".

The glass for me makes this picture. I mean I love the picture, it is old and weathered and definitely abandoned, but that glass, is it lead glass? was it stained at one point, does weather and neglect do this, was it PS? Really well done to lead teh eye to it Or at least my eye.
