abandoned rest home



There's a place I must go
It's not a place I have seen
But I’ll get there in a blue dream

A very good shot!

What I really love about this is the unsettling feeling of the picture. You really feel as if something is going to jump out at you, and I wouldn't want to see what's up that ladder!

The shot itself has been taken from a good angle: quite far back, but not so far back we can't see anything. The light coming in from the door gives a very nice effect as well :3 Personally, I think you could have taken it on an angle to make it more interesting, rather than straight on.

I've seen shots like this many times, which is why I only gave three stars for originality.

Very good :3

Great picture! I like the lightning and colours. Did you use a Filter or was it natural?
The angle creates dynamics and the structures of walls etc. gets accentuated by the shading.

Well done! I really like it!

That ladder into the attic is a real nice touch. Did you get any shots up there as well?

no i didnīt go up. might look stable, but it was a really shaky construction!

Oh yeah, I didn't think about how old that flooring and ladder probably was. I guess that wouldn't have been a good idea.

Its a story about a girl and a village who live after the time when Zombie's attack. they live in the middle of the forest surrounded by like a fence and the zombies live in the woods all around them. blah blah blah zombies attack and she ends up in this old castle ish place. And thats what it reminds me of :)

hope you dont mind your beautiful picture reminding me of zombies and such XD
