    Thankyou very much Mandy Smile
    Hmm, yeah I know what you mean about the curtain, however I often feel that need to just hint at what's beyond the frame as well as within it, if you get me.

    Seriously epic location and shot.

    A lovely "full" photograph! Great image.

    Thanks for the positive comments - in answer to Jadus, I may have opened the top door when I walked through, but generally try not to rearrange things in my pictures if possible. It does occasionally need to be done though, but not here, so I can't claim to have been "inspired"Wink except by the place itself.

    Thanks. The locals wouldn't even acknowledge the place existed! It was certainly a "haunted" (in the metaphorical sense) place.

    Great shot Catherine!

    Yes, its a little bit lopsided, but must admit that really didn't strike me immediately, as was busy looking at the lovely content of the shot. Nicely framed and composed despite that small flaw.

    The only other suggestion I would make is that, assuming the view would be pretty much the same throughout the 180degree range that faces the sea, personally I would have either included more of the pier to the left of the shot as an interesting detail, or excluded it altogether, rather than have it just peeping in - its too indistinct to be an assest to the shot or interesting addition, and so becomes a minor distraction instead. I suspect someone unfamiliar with Brighton might find their eyes pulled off toward that mystery object rather than seeing and taking in what you want them to.

    The obvious remedy would be either to cut it out altogether by moving the whole shot over to the right, or if possible re-positioning it between the two left-hand columns Smile

    Quote:Just found this after you comments on my image,cant beleive how much attention is hasn't had!! Very well taken and not done by many.

    Thanks Gary! I guess I'm not active enough here to get noticed, I don't know, haha! Or maybe shots of sparrows will always be more popular.

  • The Old Asylum

    Quote:Absolutely great idea and vision, but was the wheelchair really found there? The handles don't show any sign of rust, the armrests are in great shape and the leather seat and back look good too...

    Well I rotated it slightly to work better compositionally, but I certainly didn't put it there! Smile It's a small child's wheelchair, so appropriate to be found where it was, in the children's section. Also, it was a bit rusty, but it just doesn't show up on this particular shot. If you visit my website you can see a few more of it.

    Shame about the slashmarks on the arm, I feel it sends out a very negative message when models have this, even though I realise it may represent a personal issue for the model.

    Suggest blurring the woman so she matches everything else? At present she looks pasted-on.

    Denbigh? Talgarth? Any more shots to come? Smile

  • "Curl"

    Wow, nice, deserves more votes. You should take predictable shots of robins or flowers if you want those though.

  • EyEs Of The Insane

    Looks more like "eyes of the p*sshead" to me, but it's a striking image nonetheless, and gets my vote!

    Quote:Rather you than me, bravery award alone!, well done, looks eerie


    Cheers, and yes it was, I was alone and it was very very quiet, and smelt deathly, if you know what I mean. Somebody had been in and piled up little stacks of stone from the smashed fronts of the broken tombs for some reason. I was amazed at the sheer length of the corridors.

    Might have been a pretty good portrait but what's with the blue ring!?

  • Give us a chip

    Really nice example of street photography there! It's funny at first glance (especially given the title, which is an important additonal factor which can be overlooked - thinking of decent titles is a skill in itself), but then when your eye actually moves back to the guy on the left, it suddenly feels just a little intimidating!

    From a technical point of view, there's not much to criticise - you arguably could have increased the contrast or added some very mild grain, which would both give a grittier look if you wanted to go for the "intimidating" look, but it certainly isn't necessary. Nice shot!

    Ah, I have been to the graveyard, but not inside the tower - very nice.

    Nice! I know there's not a lot left but I'd like to see it.

  • Cartoon?

    Not hugely flattering! There are some good free Photoshop "cartoon" actions around on the web. Try searching for Maredas Cartoon Action, although I'd suggest thinking harder about composition and making the initial photo more flattering first!Smile
