Dealership that closed when GM scaled back the number of dealerships.

I see this every day on my way home for work. I've been waiting for the right challenge. Serious fog out today, but I think it helped the background a little.

That fog certainly helped add the "mists of time" essence.

Very urban and decayed!
B&w seems washed out to me.
Flat angle.

Great journalism piece. Tells a current story of today's failed economy. The "no credit check" sign is a great contrast with the Chevrolet name above. I think it would help if you backed up a bit catching the corner of the building in the frame.

maybe the customers should have gotten a credit check on the dealership =)

"so, what type of warranty does this car come with"
"1 year, 5 years... same to me... we're closing up tomorrow"

hahahah Nice find!.... now, what i find really interesting in this shot is the fog in the background.,.. I would have made that a larger feature of the feature... step back and get more fog/trees in the shot to give it a more decayed look... great work! (8 from me)
