So this is an old shot, but I think it's just a cool run down old building.
Did a little editing & then used a gradient map on it to convert to b&w.

I took this with my Kodak V570 using the panoramic option.

This is really cool. The Kodak didn't do to bad. I like the contrast. I will have to try the Gradient map when converting to B/W. Very nice.

This is quite interesting. The severe contrast between ground and sky accompanied with the panoramic distortion gives this an other worldly feel.

Is this inverted? Definitely looks like it in the FG. It's a wonderful effect particularly for this landscape. Nice touch!

I send a bill payment to Wilkes-Barre every month. I wonder if this is where it ends up.

Processing reminds me of the intro to the old Tales From the Darkside show.

Nice image. I agree with others here, it is kind of errie, and sad to see the vandal damage. Nice work.

Interesting subject - has an errie feel to it. The tones are extreme, but I think the processing suits the image. I like it.

Almost looks like an IR shot. Taken with a very WA lens?

It is an interesting (and sad) photo to see the scar left behind by closed industry. BTW - How DO those top level windows get broken anyway? Target practice? :)
