This is a fantastic piece of art. The following words came into my mind: emptiness, silence, momentariness, death. While the light seems to be warm, it just contrasts the frightening atmosphere of this abandoned building, there is no warmness just emptiness. You can feel how it must have been when this room was full of life, somebody playing songs on the piano while other are listening but it's all gone.

The technique of this photo is nearly perfect, the light is excellent. But what really make this picture unique is the mood that it transports. I like the the fish-eye look and the sharp and crisp textures on the floor, the walls and the ceiling. Can't stop looking at this one, great job!

Wow. I love the feeling of this photo. Did you by any chance play the piano, just to see if it still worked? Add to the eerie silence by putting a strange, cheerful melody into the air?

yes it worked, but it was heavily untuned!

Wow! Wo wohnst Du denn, dass es da solche verlassenen und vergessenen Bauten gibt? Die Bilder haben echt Stil!

das ist aber schon was besonderes, da ist die Zeit ja quasi stehengeblieben. sonst ist oft alles verwüstet und bemalt.

When I saw this, I gasped! SO completely fantastic! I adore it! ADORE this! It has such an interesting idea to it, the piano in the middle with nothing else. It's gorgeous. I feel like it's lonely though, it misses the person that originally played on it.

Weird thought...
