This is an old building just off a major highway, surrounded by a fence and barbed wire - had to shoot through the fence so I couldn't get the whole building. Desat, crop, increase contrast, USM, re-size.

I like this one. I always feel like I need to get the whole subject in the shot but I always like ones where its cut off. I like the black and white and the contrast. I would have voted a around a 6 or 7.

Picked out one of your least commented on photos to try my critique on, so - Think the subject is good, composition comes across as just a LITTLE hard on the eyes, not terrible, but not optimum. To me the first thing I noticed about the actual photo was you cut of the end, making it almost like an incomplete story. I did not vote on this challenge, but had I, truthfully would be in the majority of others, either 4 or 5, depending on MY mood, and that does make a difference with everyone, unfortunatly! Also, not a critique but an opinion, I prefer color almost every time, as I find do most of the dcp'ers, but you have to be true to yourself first, so I try NOT to downgrade images done in sepia, b and w or other mono or duo tones.

Well seen.
Image is a bit harsh contrast-wise and in my opinion kinda' hurts this shot, especially where the detail is lost. A lot of stories to be told under that roof.
