Still Standing After All These Years       ©2019 RobertLavker
Panasonic DMC-GX8       4th place, 132 points
1/4s, f5.6, ISO 100, 14mm, Manual, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: RAW files converted with Adobe RAW. Decreased shadows; increased highlights, increased contrast;curves; filter-unsharp mask; transform - skew       Extra Info: Shortly after taking this image, a violent thunderstorm arose and a piece of the ceiling directly above the girder, near where I was standing, collapsed. I processed this as a bad omen and immediately left the building.

    Doc - I had you at #2. I remember you shot a decaying synagogue in a previous challenge. Is it still standing in disrepair?

Congrats on your double top 5 finishes!

    "...not as good as your main entry.", but still a great finding and shot! ;-)

    I liked this shot. Glad you are still with us. The real danger comes when you pull the chain :-)

    I like the way this view highlights the decay of the post and archways.

    Interesting and creative angle. Can't decide which I like better, this or your main entry. See? Didn't I comment on your other entry that this place looks dangerous!

    Very nice shot too, but not as good as your main entry.
...just in my opinion.

    Great detail of the damaged column. Despite the ravages of time and man, the elegant lines are still pleasing to the eye.

    Nice picture of abandoned thing. Congrats that you did not get the piece of ceiling on you. In my favorites.

    Quite a spectacular ruin. The dark post bothers me in this composition.

    Impressive shot and story ! But I prefer the shot you have uploaded in the main section

    The pillar is an amazing focal point, a great symbol of the overall dilapidation. Fascinating to see the text on the ceiling is still visible.

Shame the lens distortion is quite marked - was it possible to straighten in pp?

Glad you got out safely... it is a great picture but not worth injury!

    Like the composition - very dramatic. Reducing saturation, maybe tweaking the hue could add to the sense of decay. As is, the bright colors almost seem cheery.
