Seven large-ish pictures, this time from an old TB asylum. Seven large-ish pictures


Water Tower

This is one of my favorites.

This shot doesn't do justice to how cool this building looked, nor to the colors that the leaves had that day.

I really like how the sky turned out in this one.

This is one I really wanted to get some feedback on. I partially desaturated it to get rid of some ugly color, and really liked the washed out, faded feel to this. What do you think? Does this work, or do you think it would look better in straight black and white?







Back of Building

This is another one I'm undecided on. I think I could crop this for a really interesting composition, mostly panoramic, by cutting almost to the base of the wall and to just above the highest peak, but leaving the sides where they are. I played around with it and couldn't decide if I liked that better than cropping in one of the sides to give an asymetrical look (which was difficult, because I ended up centering the two trees in front of the building). Thoughts?





As always, any feedback I can get to improve these is welcomed and encouraged.

Cool. I went down there once because I wanted to it myself. It was so beautuful! I love the old hospital. My father & I are planning to go back, one to get black & white pictures of it. And second to go inside but we are going to "ask the police men" to & say it's for a "school project." :P

Was the water tower just for the old facility itself? Those pictures are great. I love the one done in color. Great autumn look. I know what you mean, it seems our pictures seldom capture things as vividly as we see them in real life; but these are amazing.

Ya I think the water tower is for the facility itself, that way there was no contamination.
