I don't know much about the technical aspects of photography but you obviously know what your doing the image is crisp, clear, and focused you've captured only what you want to portray to the viewer with startling clarity that really pulls the viewer into the scene.

In your wider angle shot of this scene "Last Goodbye" I had a very intrapersonal connection to the scene I felt like it was a fork in the road to the afterlife and thoughts of lost loved ones mingled in with the titling and the emotions this brought forth. What evoked such a reaction in me was the centerpiece that was the focus of this shot the rusted cross over what I call the casket.

With this closer shot of the centerpiece I feel more of a sense of finality rather than choice like in the previous shot. The colorless and drained atmosphere, and the rusted cross over what looks to me to be a casket really sinks in that feeling of having reached an end which works in cohesion with a sense of corruption or possibly degradation in the chipping and cracking of the walls and the scattered debris.

Overall this is very well captured and as I stated it has an underlying emotional power. This is a great find and you did it justice in capturing it all so well, I look forward to seeing more of the fruits of your explorations.

The subject matter doesn't particularly appeal to me but the subtle balance between shadow and highlight are what, I feel, make this a stunning picture. If the contrast were any greater, it would probably ruin the effect.
