Hello from Critique Club :)

The drama is right there front of me. I like the way you did this picture right from the start.

Technically, nice exposed, clean, sharp image. F stop right on the money :)

Composition, very well. Some photos like this one need subject on the middle because of the surroundings. You did cover-up some stuff with post process which is good because it brings the old house more to our attention. Here is one little thing that I would do, crop it more and bring the whole building a bit closer. Not much, but just a little bit. First look, I can't see the broken wall, it would be nice to see it closer.

Overall it is a very nicely done challenge photo. I would give 7, 5.8 probably little low, should be around 6.1 in my opinion. This doesn NOT deserve 2s or 3s at all... Damn trolls LOL

I checked your work, you know what you are doing, keep it up. Very good photos, I am sure you will be winning another ribbon soon :)

Good luck,

Nice Tone on this one. I am big fan of vignetting, as long as it looks more natural. Here it looks too uniform and forced. Good luck. No vote just comments

Beautiful tones. That tree really sets off the old building.

I would like this better if the trees acted more like a frame to the shot rather than blocking the building...

This really portrays abandoned including the bared trees! However, I think it may take a creaming because of the lack of focus and detail in the main subject. I could be wrong and hope that I am!
