This is one of about 450 photos taken in Bandar Aceh, unfortunately i only have a computer for about one hour and have no photoshop :(

I submitted this as its has been 11 months since the tsunami and I wanted to remind everyone that theres still a lot of devestation and help needed there.

wow. such a sad story. like the composition of the house, would be interested in seeing the horizon line off-center. the washed out colors seem to work with the photo subject. nice capture!

This photo has such amazing potential for scoring high. Normally, I would love pictures of clouds and mountains and hills, but (IMO) the photo of the dilapidated house/structure would have been more dramatic especially with different lighting. I hope that doesn't sound harsh...just trying to be constructive :)

Nice shot. The sky is a bit over bright. You might have been able to correct in PS but when shooting it is a good idea to meter on the sky or brightest spot in the picture. It is easier to lighten up shadows than reduce highlights as once they are blown you can't recover them. The focus is also a bit soft. A good sharp focus on the destroyed building would have really make this picture have more punch.
