    I had a chance of exploring an abandoned train station. Was very cool and a lot of fun walking around in this old hall. Unfortunately I didn't bring my tripod on this trip. It was already towards the end of the day and it was getting dark quickly. I bumped up the ISO, so my pictures turned out a bit grainy...

    Let me know what you think

    3. With this one I tried a different thing in Photoshop... Still deciding if I like it or not... :)

    IMO, the first is the best, very nice (altho cropping a little off the left to move the chair off center would improve it.)
    I also uprighted the left side a little so the distortion behind the chair is not so obvious but left it on the right, almost as if the chair were compelling the distortion it faces.

    The second is distorted but without a real object of itnerest.
    The third is too dark for my tastes, hiding the chair.

    I really like the first one. I like the chair in the middle but that's just my taste.

    I love the first one -- so much that I nominated it for photo of the month. Great job. I love the textures and the mood, you captured everything really well.

    Oh these are very nice! I'm going to go against the grain and say that the 2nd is my favorite. I like the detail in the walls and ceiling and the vast emptyness the photo portrays

    I was wondering too. Doesn't seem to me San Francisco would let something like this go untapped for long.

    very nice.... i like the first best... the chair would be better further to the left but i prefer the original as the extra area of blue light makes it more dramatic imo.... good stuff :thumbup:

    1st is clearly the best :D and I clearly prefer the original version.
    Distorsion is not a pb for me, it is normal with this type of Wide angle
