    First, I really have no idea what I'm doing with this camera...all pictures were taken on either auto, macro, or shutter priority. I noticed some came out a little granny. I did many in RAW and tried to play with settings afterwards and ran all of em through photoshop too.

    Feel free to give input but keep in mind I really don't know what I'm doing and I'm well aware of that.

    And also interested in any favorites

    My faves are 2 and 5...I like the colours, the texture of the flaking paint, and the strips of light as you look down the hall in the fifth one

    wow. these photos are amazing. i never imagined an insane asylum that was made solely for children. that's just so sad.

    I was just reading up on it some more and it would seem that some of the patients spent a good few decades there. Reading the issues they had and just some things we consider simple like getting dressed or going to the bathroom they couldn't do.

    Oh and it wasn't just insane children but also mentally challenged and behaviorally issued children.

    Seeing the issues we have online, it's sort of like the way the social internet effects people?


    Nice shots. You'll get there. It's good you research your subject too. IMO.

    & the second shot stands out for me.

    Knowing what it is makes you look at the photos in an entirely different way. This is VERY VERY creepy and very dark and disturbing.

    And don't be so hard on yourself. Everyone has to learn about photography, even the professionals on here. We all start at the same point, which is zero. These are good photos, and I hope you keep shooting and posting! :)

    I like the 'ghosts' in 2 and 4. You shoulda got a little kid to go and sit in one of the chairs in no.1; just to add even more creepiness :confused:

    Great series :thumbsup:

    I might have to make a trip to that place. Wouldn't be too terribly far for me. If I decide to bring a group, would you be willing to aid in the adventure?

    #5 is my favorite but I like #2 a lot too. I have to admit I got a shiver down my back when I saw #2

    I'd feel more comfortable taking just you then taking a group of people I don't know. Now that winter is coming I have more free time...or I should at least since I can't ride.

    Heres some more from older trips with a point and shoot
