This is 3 photos of HDR taken with Cokin ND 0,8 Filter. After I get home I've added some mood on it by using CS2. Birds are also added too.

I must say that as soon as I saw this I actually gasped. I am very impressed with your usage of light and dark. The building and It's surroundings are very defined and the addition of the birds adds a sinister touch to the over all atmosphere.

This Photograph Is very Impressive. I want to actually stand in front of the building but I have this feeling that the building Itself does not appreciate visitors. You can look all you want but to come any closer would not be wise.

I truly love this picture and I thank you for sharing.

Wow, unless there's also some photomanipulation going on here, you have a really serendipitous shot here.

Great composition over all-- lots of movement, and my eye never gets stuck. The birds at the top really make that possible.

I only have one gripe (unusual for me) and that might just be my monitor-- the bottom of the photo is a little too dark. The detail of the brick gets lost and the eye wants to get mired down there in the black. Usually this computer's monitor is actually lighter than others, so I'm inclined to believe it will look the same for other people.

Overall, though-- fantastic shot.

Her critique is fair but I disagree about the bottom of the photo. I had no trouble focusing on the "whole". It's beautifully done and the shadows add to the pictures overall ambiance. It makes you take a closer look at what might be missed upon first viewing.

THanks it was helpfull. As you said the bottom of the photo is a little too dark because of HDR processing. I should have made it lighter with less detail loose.

Very nice photo. I like this dark tone of your pic, and the perspective too, it feels like someone would've come to the house
