Default Photo tourney: Abandoned places

... my choice is abandoned places.


We should make some clear rules for this one though. Things like when the submission period is over, when voting begins/ends, etc. And I still say we need more time. Based on the rules you just said, people can only really submit photos they've taken in the past. If they don't have anything that matches the theme, there isn't time to go out and get something that works.

Rules are:
No photo shopping, (colour balance/correction allowed, and transformation to a black and white image allowed)

submissions will be open for 1 week.
You can make as many submissions as you like, but only the last one counts.

This is an old sanitarium up here. I took this picture over a year ago, but I think it fits well.

I'll enter this one for now. I might change to a different photo later though. I have a few black and whites to print, but I'm unsure if they're better than this or not.

Also jmacavali, I know you're trying to get the old picture look, but that effect looks more like the person who printed it was incompetent and skipped the fixing bath.

Bahaha! It's just a filter effect.

Just for reference, here's the original BW. I'm still entering the previous post though.

That looks better. Try shifting the balance more toward yellow/red to bring the sky down a bit.

I think it might be best to extend the entry period for another week, so it'll close on the 28th.
