Taken in Flint, MI where there are many boarded up homes and business - sad if you ask me.

I know it's not exactly "in the process" of closing, it's technically already closed, but I couldn't resist.

Definitely tells the story. A bit too over-exposed, though.

Great angle. And I'm a fan of the sepia tones.

OK no doubt you will get some people saying that this is not something in the act of closing but rather something that is closed. Hopefully people wont be too picky on this because I think it meets the challenge well and that the duotone works very well with the image adding a sense of age and decay

Barrel distortion is serious in this shot. And the composition could be much better.

Color here is great and makes the shot so much more interesting.

The tilt of the image and lack of detail in the highlights mars this image for me.

I wish the focus had been a little sharper on this. Great shot!

Nice idea. The highlights are a little bright. There is a lot of information to take in, perhaps a tighter crop would make this photo a little simpler.

Looks like the closing was some time ago...

This looks like it's "closed" rather than "closing"
