Wow, what a sky! Beautiful photo... my favorite.
04/19/2005 02:11:06 PM
Wonderful composition and boy oh boy what that sky does for it!
Reds a bit too saturated, but took nothing away because of it.
After looking back on this, I feel the reds are right on for the shot and kicking it up to a 10 now. One of my favorites, and into my favorites!
04/18/2005 06:38:41 PM
Lovely composition and color. Hope this does well :)
04/18/2005 03:38:34 PM
This is just beautiful!
04/18/2005 12:30:04 PM
Excellent composition, glad the sky cooperated for you. High rating.
04/18/2005 11:45:28 AM
nice pix.
04/18/2005 11:12:33 AM
Beautiful photograph.
04/18/2005 07:53:54 AM
As this is a basic challenge, and therfore no dodging and burning, youhave manged to capture an amazing shy here. Great shot
04/17/2005 09:38:20 PM
Beautiful color and texture. I like the big sky. My favorite of this challenge.
04/17/2005 05:34:58 PM
u prob even have remarks about not sure if its abandoned (pfft)
like a miniature painting..im a sucker for this
i love these unusual proportions too
the double frame..hmm..not so sure about that
04/17/2005 03:52:41 PM
I like the negative space composition. Great image.
04/17/2005 07:44:41 AM
I think perhaps the impact of this photo would be greater if you had concentrated on just one of the huts. That said, its still a nice image.
04/16/2005 08:58:08 PM
I went few days ago to this house to photograph like you and many others, but I didn't post mine. Yours is just great, well composed and beautiful. Good luck!
04/16/2005 08:07:32 PM
Very nice picture. But building looks too secondary in this picture. 7
04/16/2005 03:24:50 PM
The sky and buiding combination here has such impact. It couldn't be bettered.
04/15/2005 10:09:00 PM
Beautiful colours, detail and composition. Shame there are two buildings..re:alone..great shot.
04/15/2005 09:44:59 PM
Beautiful sky and water colors (as well as the buildings.) But, there is no sense of "abandoned" for me.
04/15/2005 07:08:18 PM
Amazing sky. The reds are a bit oversaturated but still contrast well vs the blue.
04/15/2005 04:18:48 PM
dramatic approach I would reduce the sky by half IMO
04/15/2005 03:47:44 PM
Nice picture. I'd have liked to see a closer shot of the buildings though.
04/15/2005 07:08:26 AM
great setting
04/15/2005 06:43:42 AM
04/15/2005 06:43:16 AM
Very special, just love this photo
04/15/2005 03:30:51 AM
Very nice picture ... but I would have prefered a closer approach so I could see the textures and details of the abandoned buildings ...
04/14/2005 11:36:01 PM
Very nice. I like the fact that you took this photo from a distance.
04/14/2005 11:32:40 PM
I find this looks a bit over processed.
04/14/2005 11:22:17 PM
I love the sky and the colors on this one. Good job.
04/14/2005 09:06:22 PM

04/14/2005 05:36:20 PM
Beautiful sky. Nice lighting & color. Great use of negative space.
04/14/2005 04:48:02 PM
Sense of isolation is over whelming here. Nice handling of all the elements, sky, ground and buildings to tell the story....6

04/14/2005 04:47:24 PM
Love the colors, a 10 all the way
04/14/2005 04:23:19 PM
Beautiful sky... The buildings almost look like toys.
04/14/2005 02:52:55 PM
Wow! What a great sky. I love the deep saturation in this and the way the red buildings stand out between the brown and the blue. One of my favorite in the challenge!
04/14/2005 09:57:26 AM
Had to comment, I think you took a wonderful shot. I like the fact that you drew color from the sky to make up for the barren ground... I found that a obstical in this challenge...but my skys weren't like like yours to draw inspiration from!
04/14/2005 09:56:28 AM
mjog flott mynd kannski aðeins of mikið af rauðum lit
þú færð 9 frá mér
04/14/2005 03:03:51 AM
good sky...to far to see texture and color the buildings.5
04/14/2005 01:29:30 AM
04/13/2005 10:58:36 PM
Incredible sky - incredible color. Great shot.
04/13/2005 10:08:44 PM
that sky is incredible, and the contrast with the red..... marvelous
04/13/2005 09:55:10 PM
over processed for my taste.doesn't look like photo
04/13/2005 08:42:40 PM
Good color. Wonderful cloud texture. Nice lighting. Wish the buildings were closer/larger so I could see more detail.
04/13/2005 06:25:40 PM
simple and beautiful. can't think of any constructive crit so. 8, may bump later.
04/13/2005 05:13:23 PM
Beautiful sky. 9
04/13/2005 04:08:52 PM
There's a nice balance of colours in this one. I love the blues and reds in this one. Composition wise, I am not too sure, but there's something rather magical about this shot.
04/13/2005 01:25:27 PM
That sky is fantastic...I think that huge sky lends to that feeling of solitude.
04/13/2005 01:09:57 PM
The best of the bunch, so far.
04/13/2005 12:09:19 PM
Very nice shot.
04/13/2005 11:42:04 AM
Wow ! Great use of negative space. I like it a lot !
04/13/2005 09:39:00 AM
Great color and picture, very great looking sky and the color contrast of the buildings and the sky really attract your eye to the buildings
04/13/2005 09:31:33 AM
Great sky!
04/13/2005 09:24:52 AM
Wow, is this a gorgeous shot! You did a great job of capturing a huge landscape while keeping the houses as the point of focus. Really nicely done!
04/13/2005 05:57:17 AM
Hehe, haven't I seen these houses somewhere before? ;-)

Anyway, I feel this picture would have benefitted from some noise reduction and I find the red color of the houses to be bit too saturated for my taste. I think a bit of shadow/highlight might have benefitted the image.

Composition is nice.

Amazing sky.

The focus of this picture doesn't really seem to be the abandoned buildings. They are so small you can barely see them.

04/13/2005 03:14:36 AM
Rich and Heida-esque. Very strong & evocative shot. IS it heida? Looks like iceland for sure. There's some oversturation of the reds at work here, but for me it's effective. I hope others feel the same way.

Too cool! I love the simplicity. Must be Iceland or Newfoundland or I have no clue. Great shot anywhere it is! Good luck! 7

Beautiful. The sky is great, and the red colors contrast beautifully against the cool blue colors surrounding. I just love this shot.
