My favorite nearby decaying building may be torn down soon. I noticed various workers today clean up areas and the glass on the front has all been removed. I still haven't figured out what this place is, but I sure hope it sticks around in its current state for a while longer.

Post Processing:
* Chromatic Aberration
* Combine 3 exposures in Nik HDR Efex Pro
* Un-skew to fix camera perspective
* Increase contrast
* Increase definition
* Increase saturation with lower vibrancy
* S-curve
* Reduced green of the grass a bit (I wouldn't mind, but I'm sure some voters would see the green and vote down)
* Sepia tone at 60%
* Vignette
* Export to TIFF
* Resize
* Sharpen Edges
* Save as JPEG

Fabulous shot. What an interesting old building and you really lucked out on that sky.

Those clouds look ominous and seem to pose this building in an intimidating fashion. The rays also seem to be pointing to the building. Nice perspective.

The building and sky lends itself to a sepia pic. The sky has nice elements with the clouds and sun rays. The building has nice old architectural qualities.
