Your composition here is quite nice, though it does make me want to see more of the scene if only for the fact that it is so closely cropped, or I'd personally like to see a border here to properly enclose the image. In terms of HDR, I agree with some of the previous comments in that the sky does seem a bit overdone in comparison to the structure. I'm not hugely expereinced with HDR, but perhaps reducing the strength of the processing would have appealed to a more general audience in this case.

Lovely lighting, it reminds me of Mr. Roger's for some reason. Interesting image and creative use of the odd letter Q!

I can see what looks like dodged/burned areas; but I do like the composition of the image, I see a lot of effort put into this which is why I score it more on the high end :) - goodluck! :)

The processing of the depot really stands out to me. The sky looks a bit funny in comparison though. Also, I wonder how this would look with that little bit of tree on the right cropped out completely.

I'm guessing the crop is justified by 'unattractive' features on either side of this Depot. Its a shame we dont get to see all of it!

Interesting shot. Quaint? yes. Rail Station? yes, well, perhaps, at least it was a rail station; coffee shop now? So, I certainly deem the title and photo meet the challenge.

I find the colors very interesting. It reminds me of the odd colors found in the sky while tornadoes are near. The clouds also look familiar, but they don't look real. Were they added?

Eerie photo. Clouds seem to be mismatched to the sunny lighting and the large white area on the right is a bit distracting.

Like the colours and the use made of the clouds. But everything seems over smoothed to me.

The title and image dont really match for me. Something about a grey/stormy day doesnt scream 'quaint' to me. In a challenge where the title is important, I think it is extremely noticable.

The processing on the clouds is a bit obvious here. This probably would have been better left alone.
