edit after voting deadline:

this was a confirm of the following theory: "photography is 60% skill+20% light+20% LUCKY"!!

we arrived at this abandoned country house at 80km from where we live, it was cold, dark and damn scary!! it was also halloween day, so for all the trip we continued to get my girlfriend scared.. it wasn't hard! :D
..this is a very impressive location: ideal for some horror like "the blair witch project", the light was great and the clouds perfect..

i thanks every body for the comments and the congratulation.. i'm very happy for my first ribbon!! i still can't belive that this shot have been over 7.00 for almost all time.. :D

A little more focus on the house to show off what I'm sure are excellent textures would have been great. Still a strong shot.
11/07/2008 07:25:29 PM
Very cool. Looks like something the Adams Family would live in. Nice work.
11/07/2008 05:03:41 PM
Lovely shot. Looks moody and brooding. 8

Nice HDR, I think it's really cool how you included the distant lights in the background. It's like a contradiction here's is this seemingly abandoned manor and yet just a few miles a way there is some sort of current civilization
11/06/2008 06:18:09 PM
Excellent! Creepy and totally cool.
11/04/2008 09:47:10 PM
Very spooky looking with the editing. Nice job! I'm just kind of wondering who comes to trim the hedges? *smile* They look like they've been upkept fairly recently.
11/04/2008 05:59:36 PM
spooky and very nicely done
11/04/2008 05:19:49 PM

amazing colors and tones in this one! haunting looking building, and that perspective helps to enhance that feeling very well!
11/03/2008 04:01:25 PM
Makes me want to look for ghosts in the scrubs...
11/03/2008 02:30:04 PM
Ooh, this screams, "haunted!" :) I like the lights from the city in the back and love, well, everything else about this pic. Well done!
11/03/2008 01:29:31 PM
That is a very cool building. I love the way you got the clouds in there too.

I believe this could be a ribboner. Awesome shot, great processing.
