    That's a cool picture! I love taking pics of abandoned places hehe, you could always try cropping a bit of the bottom off though.
    Nice shot!

    I did consider doing that and turning it into a standard 8x10, I just love the square format though :lol:

    Thanks for the comment

    Half the shot is boing stuff like an empty sky or some grass. Go in closer and focus on something specific

    But the point of the shot is that there is now emptiness where before there was a vibrant, noisy place of work.
    I do agree about the foreground grass, I have a shot of the inside of the foundry which I will publish when I am happy with the print.

    based on the tag, i'd say it's somebody in bam margera's gang :)

    in either case, the only message this conveys to me is one of disuse or abandonment, but i just thought it was some old house that was broken. i don't really get any feeling of industry or lack there of.
