Challenge: Signs (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF 28-90mm f/4-5.6 II USM (Black)
Location: Sylmar, CA

This is taken in an old hospital that burned down in Sylmar, CA. It looks like a door, but it's where a sink and a mirror used to be.

I had to re-edit this for the basic challenge, so it doesn't look as well as my original edit, but that's okay. I just played around with levels, and then unsharped masked and saved for web. Which also kind of sucked because the colors got really washed out.

Excellent! I really enjoy the composition and using the wall as a frame. The colors are supurb. A very subtle photograph that does not need a title.

I like the sense of texture I get from your image. I wonder how this would look with the door a bit more off centered one way or the other. For me, I like things that aren't "dead" centered.

Nice contrast in colors and textures. I like the simplicity and out of the box style. 6

glorious decomposition, and that does look like a sign in there. 9.

I love the old worn out, beat up stuff like this!!! Maybe having it centered works.... Hmmmm I'll have to think about this.

There's no physical sign, but then the challenge offered no actual details. I accept your interpretation of it (the challenge), and love your photograph. Good job.
