I am so glad I hadn't deleted this picture. As of June 2008, these house boats were washed away. The flood of Cedar Rapids carried these things all the way to the bridge where they were crushed, upturned and everything in between. I may just have one of the last living memories of them.

cool scene, not sure on the composition though. I think a wider angle would have helped make it more dramatic, or perhaps a telephoto long shot down the icey corridor, I just think in this photo the right side of the photo is a distraction. if you had stepped to the right and aimed into the corridor you could get it curving right into the middle of the shot from the left side of the frame. I think that would be a lot more interesting.

this is a cool scene though, i like it

Thanks for the critique and compliment. This shot is part of my Samsung folder deviations (marking my starting point in photography). My limitations at the time, I was only using an old circa 2002 compact with a 2x optical zoom, leaving few telephoto options. The space to the left and behind the building was highly undesirable and would have spoiled the scene, though, the right side of it was the only workable space...I only captured in the frame what the scene would allow, while, still maintaining its ere feel. I knew back then, that the idea of photography was to capture /isolate that particular feel within the scene, making that particular scene feel as if it is its own world in many instances. True, I should have taken a series of different angles of this place. I'll be sure to keep that in mind in the future ;)
