Challenge: Abandoned Buildings II (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-400D Rebel XTi
Location: Ewing NJ
Date: Jan 12, 2008
Galleries: Emotive, Architecture
Date Uploaded: Jan 15, 2008

The Naval Air Warfare Center in central NJ. My husband samples the water there for work. I tagged along.
There are at least 8 abandoned buildings on site. I happened to really like the glimpse of the other door and the sunlight creaping into the spooky site.
Apparently this is also home to the homeless in Ewing NJ. I saw some movement right after I snapped this ... so I skidaddled out of there fast.
I don't expect this one to do well ... but I like it.

size, unsharp, brightness/contrast, levels, crop, save for web.

Real interesting window view. How was the water?

This is a very cool photo, Jeanne! In the thumb, it looks like the silhouette of a man kneeling down and bending over - like he's breaking and entering - and I love that door in the back. Excellent but not well appreciated, unfortunately.

Great eye! Excellent title. I really like this shot and its depth, and your framing of it. How it wound up with just a 5 is baffling to me.

It's cool how the black area actually looks like a figure entering the window.

is it me, or does the outline of the broken window look like some sketchy guy trying to get in...Maybe thats the point, I love it.
