    Photowise, the image is awesome, contrast is fabulous along with its composition and perspective.

    Borderwise, ouch! That thick black and white border really doesnt do the picture justice. And the clouds, I feel are overkill.

    I dont know I have the photo both ways. The border was created for a friend but still I like it both ways. The only thing i don't care for but the guy wanted it is that thick of a white inset border. I wish it was a guarter of its size.

    Here it is with no border.

    I love the pic ... and wouldn't even mind the border so much if it wasn't for the clouds!


    Good job though:thumbup:

    it is a stunning image. It depicts age so well. i cant put my finger on why. It epitomises oldness. It not just the image, its to do with the tones or something.

    I think it's a great shot...the contrast works really well, and composition wise it's great! I think maybe a thinner black border around it without the clouds would work just fine...usually borders both me, but despsite the clouds and thickness of it I think it works really well :) Great work!

    Off the subject...where is Eureka, MO???

    Beautiful shot - this just begged to be in b/w, didn't it. Wonderful choice. I'm not a fan of the original border. Glad to see you post the shot without it.

    Very nice shot, as said by all till now :) I think b/w border in first pic is adding to the image but not sure about huge dark background around it. On the shot, I really loved the tonality of the pic...

    :)

    I like the original image. The border really brings to picture to you, drawing you into the picture. I don't see any problem with it, and at the end of the day it doesn't matter as the image is whats important.
    The image on the other hand is also superb, I like the general feel of it and the shabbyness is really atmospheric.
    With that orginal border, yes - that border, on it I would be happy to hang that on a wall in my home.
