    I drive by this hotel weekly, and finally stopped to shoot it. I guess I wasn't feeling creative that day as I wasn't pleased how they turned out. Comments & critique would be appreciated - any ideas of what I could do for next time??

    This is just what the hotel looks like:

    The last one is fine.

    Is there anyway to get into the building? I really like the perspective of #2, I like being able to see all the way up the stairs. #5 is just a little too tight of a shot.
    That is a fantastic find though. If you could get into the building that would be fantastic!

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I can't get into the building... if you see in # 3 everything is boarded up and the barbwire prevents you from going up the stairs. It's pretty eerie!

    Yeah, I would imagine it's fairly old. The strange thing is that all around it has been re-built... everything except this hotel. I would imagine they're going to either tear it down or re-do it.

    Away from the hotel - the sun is coming from the west. And I only have a fancy point and shoot camera... I have no idea what the focal-lengths are. Sorry :oops:

    You should get some of the explorers to take a look at these photos, they could tell you how to get in.. It would totally be amazing inside!

    Really great job with picture No.2!!! I think that hotel looks better in B/W, or some more dramatic colors! ;))

    yes this place has potential, I prefer the b&w images but they are a little tight as BB mentioned. I am curious what the morning sun looks like on it and I think a day where there is some cloud in the sky would look good too....another thought for me would be some longer exposures around sunset and just after....or just before dawn.

    A nice sized rock could make some 'adjustments' to those window entrances...

    Where exactly.. IN alberta is this, may i ask? :) black and whites are always winners in my book, i say wait for a scattered cloud day and shoot with a red filter and underexpose it, add some bigtime drama to the surrounding scape. i wanna find places like this.

    Explorers.... :D Who are these people and where can I find them
    Thanks!
    Clouds would look more mysterious for sure... or a little rain. Ooo rain clouds. Now I just need to order them.

    Great ideas, thank you!
    LOL looks like someone already tried that tactic
    It's in Fort MacLeod - Southern Alberta. Although if you drive through enough little towns I'm sure you'll find one. I drive to Lethbridge on a weekly basis so I see a bunch of old rundown buildings all over the place. This one is my favorite tho. I love old things.. especially cars, but the ones that aren't re-done... just sittin out in a field! The one in my avatar is on the way to Lethbridge too
