This is an old, abandonded theatre in Lisbon, Portugal. Editing: crop, levels adjust.

(By mere chance, I had taken a similar picture on May 1st, before registering on the site. As a newbie, I asked for some comments on my pics. Someone noticed that photo and told me the pic had just missed this challenge by a few days :) I decided to return to the same place and I shot the same subject on a different angle.)

the light seems harsh and your title doesn't meet the challenge

I really like this image. I'm sure others have pointed out that the title was supposed to be consecutive letters, so I won't hold it against you as you obviously had the right idea going.

Ack. Very nice photo, but I just can't score it high because the title doesn't follow the challenge rules. This is too bad, because with the right title, this would have scored very well.

Hmmm, I see where your coming from for this challenge - taking a photo of consecutive alphabet letters whereas the challenge was to use a consecutive three word title. For me, there are a couple of distracting elements from your main focus, but I do like the bright colors and daylight.

wonderful cityscape shot - love the decay and the use of the three letters in sequence - i will not mark down for the fact the title is not consistent with challenge

Ah, an Abandoned Building Complex! Or is it rather Amusement Before Cinema? Nevermind, like the shot though it's DNMC.

Ok...you obviously misunderstood the challenge... So I won't DNMC as you shot this with other parameters in your mind. I think maybe cropping the bottom portion a bit might add impact. I really like that the first three letters of the alphabet are intact to further accentuate the demise of letters on the roof. Good eye and cool composition!

This isn't a 3 word title with consecutive letters.
:(

Hope everyone isn't DNMCing you. I see what you were doing. Great entry

i really really like the shot but the title isn't fitting the challenge. :(

I see why you submitted this but I dont even think it is that gerat of a shot. The wires and shadows are extremely distracting
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm thinking you missed the "three words starting with consecutive letters" title rule... You'll most likely get voted down for that.
But, this image is really good. I like the composition very much... all of those whites... with the punch of blue... and the lines across it all creating even more interest. Well done.

Good idea for the photograph. But I think that a closer read of the challenge instructions is in order. I think that with different lighting a changed shooting position this could be a outstanding photograph.

Sorry, DNMC

DNMC - specifically stated that the title be three words. Nice pic though.
