A flood destroyed the town of Thistle, Utah in 1983. It doesn't show well in this photo, but this house is about three feet deep in water and mud.

BW seems to give more of a desolate feel.

The lines parallel to the ground seem to be tilted, thus causing me to think that maybe the camera was turned. I think this could have been addressed by rotating the image about .5-1 degree clockwise. Other than that, good subject and I like this in B&W. Did you try it in sepia or duo-tones? - 7

This is my favorite of the "old house" shots. I like your choice of titles. I think I might like it a bit better in sepia, but this is my favorite of your shots so far! 9

This picture needs more contrast to be expresive, now it too plain.

Abandoned buildings do not desolation make

the echo of the mountain and the roofline are interesting

I like how the triangle formed by the peak of the roof being almost identical in shape to the mountain on the right side of the shot gives the illusion of the house blending right into the surrounding landscape.

IMO, it would be more interesting to have more detail of the house.. maybe an old object, or a subject around the house, etc.. something that make us feel "alone"..
This landscape seems to be in N.L. Mexico.. =)

I think this is a top shot. Definately desolation here. Maybe try a different angle. I would like to see what this looks like not in B&W. I think it still wouldve worked.
