I think the sky overpowers the building in this picture, espcially since it is so much lighter.

Would this have looked better in color? I think a blue sky might have helped, even if the building (not your photo) is unattractive.

The idea of the crop is interesting. I feel that maybe a little too much sky is included here. My eye tends to drift to the top of this picture and misses the building.

Great building though....

seriously, i took a picture just like this with a building that looked like that at ft.ord but decided not to submit it and good thing too cuz this one looks so much better.

A little too centered for my liking and just a little too much sky. My attention keeps getting drawn upward into the sky.

The house is very dark and slightly out of focus. Also, the straight on, centered shot makes it look very one dimensional. The sky is very nice but there may be a little too much of it.

like the composition and b/w

too much sky and not enough building. The building being shadowed does not seem like the main focus of the image. A beautiful sky and a great building.

There is too much sky in this photo, in my opinion, I would have focused more on the house and less on the sky. The focus also seems a little soft.

To bad it is overexposed .. ir

The sky has a good effect here but the lighting is a tad lacking...

The abandoned house is quite picturesque. It would have been nice to have mostly the house in the picture and not so much sky.
