these make great spaces for (sensitive) regeneration but preferably not into 'yuppie apartments'. A tough picture to get this well, good depth and detail

I like the way you've done this, my instinct would be the black background for impact, here it merges into the white as though part of the wall. Subtle.
Nice lines, horizontals, loads of verticals, hints of diagonals. And light, green grass beyond the dereliction. I hope someone makes something worthwhile of the building, anything's better than another Macdonalds branch...

As you say your shots will be a nice record when its no longer there, a nice shot and large is great for detail. - gary

I like the white background and the off centre feel this creats. Love the feeling of moving inside this window and seeing out through the back and side.

I love the way the light from the windows leads the eye through to the other end of the building - the green in the distance to me is a sign of hope for the future. Glad you resisted the temptation to convert to mono. Very evocative image. Sandra

Two elements stand out for me: the fine perspective and the framing that fades away - as the building risks fading away - - -
