    I like the first one. You can try bringing up the black level and desaturate a little

    I like the comp of the first one, although the bar is kind of distracting...there's not beginning or end to it, it's just there :dunno:

    the second not a fan :hsugh: don't really know what I'm looking at. try cropping it a little to avoid the hole in the ceiling and the corner of the floor

    Both pictures look a little flat. I've seen some PP done on other delapidated buildings that add in some orange/sepia or just high contrast that look bad ass, might want to try that.

    I'll try those out and post again. What colors do you think need de-saturating? (They're HDR's but I tried not to over-do it)

    I tried cropping out the corner of the floor and the pic looks even more lost. Pic is particularly interesting either.

    The first two are really flat. Look at your histogram.

    the 2nd one you PP'd looks like there's so much detail lost... I liked being able to see the trees and the bushes out the window.
    Should I post the RAW's?

    I like that. I just wish I would've taken a better pic where that sky wasn't so blown out.

    What did you do?

    I took most of these wider than f8 or f6. Should I be stopping down higher to get sharper photos?

    Not sure exactly what is going on but I opened yoru images in photoshop adn they do not look as hazy as they do here. I opened them in Internet Explorer adn they look hazy again. I open in side by side windows adn there is a definate difference.

    The photos are still in need of some post work like a bit of unshark mask in PS3 to get rid of all the haziness, but it is not all the images fault
