Construction site in Sacramento. Couldn't get very close because of safety fences and shot this over the top of the fence not looking in the viewfinder. Shot with a yellow filter to increase contrast.

nice again! Great repetition of form and a nice dramatic sky to top it off.

Your contrast is amazing. Love all the lines and the patterns. This is such a surreal, dramatic image. Very cool.

Cool shot. Looks like it could have been the cover of a Floyd album. Very esoteric.

Wow what fantastically moody shot! You got a great eye, seeing something ordinary and otherwise not 'worth' shooting and making it into something really spectacular! Great stuff. I'd give it a 10!

I love the Fellini like mood of this-
excellent tone,spatiality and unfinished forms allows the veiwer to imagine.

v/g horizontal wide view - interesting repetition of skeletal, unfinished structures at this construction site, & engaging dramatic tonality.

Ooh! I like! Not sure why you'd put up just two walls on several buildings at once, but this makes it look surreal. Love the darkness & contrast. None of the building starts look like they could withstand a mild breeze. The one in the foreground looks like it shouldn't even be standing at all.

I agree, this is a wonderfully forboding and dramtic shot. The tonal range is wonderful and adds to the interest of the overall composition. Great job with the b/w conversion too. It has such great debth.

Nice job processing this to make it look so barren and desolate - gives real feeling to the picture.

Fantastic job for not being able to see through the viewfinder. The contrast is great. I love the detail of the tracks in the dirt and all the geometric shapes through out.

I love the mix of geometric and natural. Wonderful sky!!!
