gaman að sjá myndir af æskuslóðum.. Grænaborg á Vatnsleysuströnd eftir að krakkarnir kveiktu í húsinu.. ekki nema nokkur ár síðan þetta fór í eyði samt ,)

flott mynd, útsýnið yfir snæfellsjökul með sólsetri getur verið frábært frá þessum stað.

I really like this photo, too bad it didn't rank higher than I thought it would. I like the contrast between a ruin of a house and a beautiful sun set.

Great location you've found there. And sunset is an excellent choice time you shot it too.

I like the photo, and the sunset and crumbling house. I like the cropping on this, but the photo looks a tad blurry, maybe its just that its getting dark and hard to see the ground.

I like it, a little fuzzy though.

nice picture, needs more foreground details

This photo is very effective. The house looks so desolate that I wonder if even the ghosts haven't abandoned it for more inviting haunts!

I would prefer a shorter title. Perhaps just "Haunted House." The primary emotion I feel when looking at this shot is lonliness. How did a house in such a prime location go to waste? What was it like before? This photo makes me ask a few questions and feel a peaceful meloncholy all at once. I think it fit the challenge well.

So, where is the end of the world?
08/15/2003 09:32:13 AM
I like this one, and think it's the best of the show.
08/14/2003 04:43:56 PM
I'm afraid the beautiful sunset/rise gives this shot too much "hope" to be truly desolate. It more says isolated.

Nicely balanced composition and I like the way the ruined house is partially silhouetted but also retains some detail.

Love this photo...great depth of color and the contrast between the darkness of the structure itself and the sky is awesome....good work!

The horizon is a bit tilted. A bit sharper also. Did you try BW ?
08/14/2003 02:10:13 AM

Great subject for the challenge. I would have really belived it to be at the end of the world if the other island wasnt in the background.
