    Hello all,

    Some walls I see on my way to work. These used to be textile factories a long (1830's) time ago.

    I am still a noob at photography, but I'll give you my 2ยข anyways.

    I think #1 is a little underexposed. I'm assuming that these were taken on a tripod so maybe a little wider aperture or longer shutter speed may have helped that one out a bit.

    I think #2 is great. Good crop and exposed nicely. The horizontal line at the top 3rd of the photo is very straight as well.

    #3 is good. I think if the sun was shining on the walls that are facing you it would have looked a little better because there is a lot of detail and most of it seems to fall out. Other than that, nice shot.

    Interesting subjects. I think the first is a bit underexposed - the stone detail gets lost on the lower third of he shot.

    The second and third are nicely done. I especially like the third with the decaying buildings backed by the lush green trees.

    Actually, I burned a bit of shadows and midtones trying to enhance the "old but well kept" look. Maybe I over did it.

    Thank you

    I understand. I've taken the smae shot during different times of the day... but I'm still not 100% happy. Thing is, the sun goes from right to left on that image, so I havent got a full sun or a full shadow, allways something in the middle. Maybe in aonother timeof the year...

    Thanks for your feedback!

    Seems I really over did the burning. Thanks.

    Thanks Doc. It's all part of the same building complex. The interior has been restored, the exterior has been left "semi-restored" to show the pass of time.

    Appreciate your feedback.

    I agree that if you could get that shot during a different season when the sun is shining more on the walls that are facing the camera it could really be a killer shot!

    I think this is a great set of shots - definitely something that I would expand with. I really like the contrast (as Doc said) with the old buildings and the full green trees.
