I have no idea what this is, but it most certainly does give me the creeps! I think that only the master photographers can capture an emotion or feeling like that, and portray it so vividly to the viewer that they can partake in that emotion. And you certainly have captured an awesome (creepy!) feeling! If a beginner like ME manages that, it's by sheer accident! :) Amazing shot!

I have to say that, in general, there isn't much that holds my interest in this photograph. It could be that I'm looking to ascribe some meaning to what I'm seeing, and that any abstract quality is destroyed by some recognizable shapes, or what, for me, amounts to a lack of structure in the composition. There's a kind of weight to the right edge of the photograph, leaving the rest of it floating in the ether; that may actually be a good thing to some viewers, as it gives a disorienting, weightless impression overall that satisifies some. Generally I very much enjoy the use of negative space in low-key images like this. The different shapes made by the intersecting lines are pleasing. There could be some lighting or post-processing issues to deal with that might result in a higher impact.

shiny, crisp high contrast with large dark shapes and glowing highlights... bold, solid composition. I gave it a 7

I love this. The light, the cobwebs and the fact that this is what most people would simply walk by and not notice.
