Mayflower Gulch near Leadville, Colorado.
my eyes are drawn to the black end of a log. is that your subject? seems a bit busy to me.
B&W. Old stuff always looks old and spooky in B&W .
yeah! I bet that would be perfect!
It's a little confusing on the eye, as to what the intention of the picture was to be... a shot of the remains, or the landscape they stand in... perhaps if you'd moved back a little, you could have used the posts etc to lead the eye towards the mountain in the background. As it is, it kind of stands in the way of the mountain, blocking it from view.
The subject is what the title suggests. This is a slice of Colorado history as these structures are over 150 years old. The mountain is just to give some perspective as to what kind of terrain the remnants are located. I thought it was an interesting area....and I personally like that there are many things to view. To each his own.
Wasn't my intention to criticise the photo... just to critique
As a shot of the remains, it's good - the exposure is good, which is tricky in snowy conditions, and the mountain certainly gives a sense of scale to this wonderful landscape
I agree with the stepping back, right now some of the logs are cut off.
composition and angles and the perspective. 10/10 for me.
the lack of contrast and dull tones really lets it down. If you could perhaps photoshop the levels a bit. this would be megaawesomewickedgreat.
