Love the processing -- you took a hard cold scene and made it soft and warm. I especially like the luminosity in the sky. And I like the fading around the edges.

I thought you were using this for warm? Standout as far as old architecture and form.

Funky processing works well here; looks like something out of a historical monograph. 8

Nice processing. It looks like an old tintype or whatever they were called. I like the cloud brightness over the building.

I really don't know how to rate this one. This seldom happens to me. It's a beautiful modern creation of an old, sepia toned, photo. But in a modern challenge it's a tremendously over-processed image. I like it, but I can't fairly vote on it so I will leave this comment and refrain.

I like the nostalgic feeling this shot has but the light vignette takes away from it here IMHO.

Wonderfully nostalgic! The fade out is very symbolic of the sharp decline in the industry and all the lost jobs. Nicely done! 9

My only suggestion here, remove the power lines on the right hand side and you've got a perfect "antique" shot! LOVE IT!!!!!!!

Interesting use of white vignetting and I really like the duo tone colors here. -BB

I like the olde worlde feel you have given this shot and think the sepia works nicely. I find the subject a little boring and feel the building is too central in the frame. I am also distracted by the blown out area in the sky. I think having something intersting right in the foreground of your image so that you appear to be shooting across them and up to the building, maybe those pieces of wood on the left, might have made this a bit more interesting.

This is just my humble opinion.

Fading into eternity? Interesting effect.
