I'm just amazed by how abandoned places make wonderful images. I got chills down my spine when I first saw the full size photo. I began to wonder what was behind that closet....although, I did close the door for the shot..yet still, I wonder.

Post edit: Shot in RAW.. so, there were many adjustments made.

I would have lightened the closet door slightly to make it pop a bit more - but other than that I love it. Great job.

I find this to be a simple and evocative composition that does show very nice lighting. I like the aged, abandoned look, and the open doorways evoke a sense of adventure. There are questions being asked by that single closed door at the end, and I appreciate the image all the more because of it.

Really cool photo. I wish the top was lighter. I really find myself thinking whats in that old place. Nice job! Can't wait to read your tech info.

Good composition and lighting. The light and dark and general theme and your exposure have made this very effective

Nice job! This image leaves me wonder what's around the corner or in the closet. I hope you score well.

I like the idea. More light on the right before the green panel door would have helped. 7

Beautifully done. I have an intense feeling of having seen this before. There's really not much to criticise at all, I'm sure you've absolutely achieved your imagined shot - other than that I think you might have made more play of the shadow areas - it pays, i think, not to forget the range of points at which your audience set 'black' on their screens.

I like this very much. Light is a key factor and the way it's used really enhances the photo.

I really like this, such a creative way to use the natural light source. Really gives dimension to this image.
