    I took these shots at an abbandoned tuberculosis hospital near my house in Lugano, Switzerland. I'm thinking some are over processed and would like your opinions on them..... be as mean as you like:

    1. The entrance

    the first one is sort of spooky, might look cooler with a darkened sky

    wicked!
    #3 is over processed yet it works for #4 and #5. Love them.
    I used to work for our provincial lung association. Our offices were out of the old TB hospital. My office was a converted hospital room and they still did TB testing on the floor below us ever second Tuesday of the month!

    lots of cool graffiti, one is awesome and i think that number 2 is a pretty awesome portrait in a landscape environment

    Thanks AF, the sky already looks quite dark on my monitor and i'm worried it would look too unnatural if it were darker but i'll give it a shot.

    Cheers rubbertree, i'll see what i can do with #3. 5 is my personal favourite.....

    PS. I thought the threat of TB had been extinguished a while back (at least in the western world). Do you know if the research was aimed towards poorer countries? Eitherway it sounds unsettling, especially if it was happening directly under your feet!

    Thanks Toxic, appreciate it!

    the first one.... Do you have that one with a little bit more sky? I think it will look great in BW...

    Wish I could go there!
