This is a worker room in an abandonned hospital. This place is really strange and dark, but there are some marks of the old workers on the walls which remembers the fun times.
This photo tries to represent this feeling.

Used 5 shots merged in HDR with qtpfsgui (free).
Merged this with the average exposure to remove the extreme HDR effect.
D&B windows and ballons

I hope you like it ;)

So... I'm an avid user of your scores plug-in, but I had a suggestion, so I looked at the preferences to see if it was already there and implemented. Then I saw that it was fav-ware--I didn't realize that!

This one was easy to fav -- it's such a great photo and it's so intriguing! Nicely done!

Janine: the best thing when you are alone in a 6 stories building with ballons, it's when one ballon explode with no reason. I though my heart stopped beating at this moment.
About getting into the place ... just find an open door :D

This image creates an intriguing contrast between the happy balloons and the despondently empty room, so it's a clear communication, and effective. 9

Love the colour set against the muted room. Great place!

Very impressive shot. I love that kind of shots. The contrast between the old house and the colorful ballouns is very intriguing. For some reasons the balloons are soft focus or might it be because of a bit too much color saturation. But besides this, I love the composition, the light and the idea. Congrats!!

What a cool title. Looks like an old asylum or hospital or school perhaps. I like it. Nicely composed.

I really like the hdr effect on this space, really brings out the textures.
