This building has always been of interest to me. It just a small modular section of a motel sitting by the side of the road. Just to it's side is an A-frame building of the sort found at lakeside resorts. It all looks very out of place. More pics to be posted in the outtakes thread.

Post challenge notes:
Well, this one sucked and I knew it because I was not satisfied with it myself. It was an experiment though,a and I think I learned something from its dismal showing.

Here's some outtakes, I think some of these would have scored higher (Though still not great):
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/637129.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/637129.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/637130.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/637130.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/637133.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/637133.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This one is the same image, but without the intentional skew:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/637132.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/80000-84999/83313/120/637132.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Reminds me of where we spent our honeymoon 30 years ago! Great title.

Angle really doesn't add anything to this image to me.

funny title. It goes well with the angle.

I like the PoV, but the colors are a bit oversaturated.

Love the caption, color, shooting angle, not really sure about the tilt,

I see some interest in the image, but not close up enough, just too much foreground taking away from the more interesting stuff. Personal preference perhaps, but I am not really comfortable with the skewed angle of the image.
