During two weekends in May, an abandoned building was open to the public with site specific artwork displayed in it. The art gallery of sorts was called the Bain Project. It was really interest because it almost seems like people just went to see the old building more so than the artwork. We went on a Saturday and I thought that we were going to be some of the only people there. I was wrong...it was packed. It was just interesting to see how many people would take time out of their Saturday to go to an abandoned building.

This is the best 'grunge' pic I've seen so far, really encapsulates the topic, could tones and textures.

This is a really great composition! It’s seedy and run-down which make for an awesome “grunge” appeal.
I like the colors and the more-natural, less-processed appearance of the shot. I would, however, like to see a little more detail in the shadows of the hot and cold taps.
There are quite a handful of diagonal lines in this image. It is difficult to keep diagonal lines free from degradation. Some are showing a little more bitmap in areas. (Not horrible, but noticeable). Sometimes the diagonal lines can be improved in the way you apply the sharpen tools with the resize. It helps a great deal to avoid over-cropping the image as well.
