The abandoned Swift meatpacking plant in Ft. Worth. The guard towers are not original. They were built just a few years ago when the facility was used as a set for the TV series "Prison Break".

This shot was taken from almost exactly the same spot as a previous entry of mine, but looking out the window instead of at the floor:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1267/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_908636.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/1000-1999/1267/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_908636.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

No idea how it will do. It's fairly busy, but I think I managed to maintain all the important detail.

Anticipated critiques:
-About the only thing I can think of is that someone might find the tower too centered.

Post-challenge notes:
Can't argue with a top 10! I'm happy.

A very good one! One of my favourites. I like the colours and how you placed the external elements in the image.

Creepy shot - nothing direct, everything implied.

Very Spiffian. A strong composition -- good color, contrast.

Lovely textures and tones. I think the tower in the center actually helps hold it all together, it's the "hub", so to speak. Congratulations!

Great colors and use of framing inside the shot. Check out the rule of thirds for other thoughts about this shot in the future.

This tower looks familiar as does the processing. Iím guessing this might be Spiffy. Nicely framed and capture of the golden hour lighting. Well done.
