Would like to see the colour version of this too...... not sure that b&w really adds anything to it..... I do like the shot though.... Good Luck, Todd. 8.

A picture of dereliction. Everything is barren and bleak, but somehow not unfriendly

Compositionally I would have preferred if you got closer to the bus and cropped out about an inch off the left side. I think the bus should be more prominent and it would help to raise the bus's roof above the level of the distant mountains. I do like the scene and the tones you've captured.

Nice desert scene and well executed in black and whiite. If it was mine, I'd probably try for a bit more foreground, but I also like your treatment. Good luck!

I really like this picture.
It would look awesome if I could see it in a bigger size.
My favorite one so far.
I've just gone back and changed from a nine to a ten!

This blows me away! This is my type of photograph. Great job with the B&W treatment and I love the subject matter and composition. Excellent!

Great idea, great photo. Personally, I would have left the color in this. By the way the bus's condition looks, it was probably a really faint yellow, which would have been awesome.
