Gorgeous textured photos. Love the contrasting colours of vanilla and brown.

You know, I really have the quality of light to thank for these shots, it was absolutely gorgeous, and mostly responsible for those vanilla and brown tones. Thank you so much MJ!

I really like these images. I love the colour palette, and the light is simply wonderful. My favourite is probably the first image: I like the way the shadow of the trees frames the lovely, characterful old door.

Oh yes, luckily I picked the perfect (late afternoon) time for these shots, because I don’t think they would have worked in harsher light, they needed something softer, something with shadows also. Thanks for the great comments, and compliment also Meanderer.

These are good work JP, especially the bottom two in my opinion – very nice! I love the graffiti and the barred window that is sidelit by the sun, and the bottom one is very layered – stratified – horizontally – and I like the graffiti there too. Nice stuff! Adrian

Yes, I agree, the bottom two are the more accomplished of these. I think there’s too much white sky in the second one, and the composition in the first one feels somewhat ‘wrong’ – but I really, really liked those shadows, so there we go.
There’s a few more of these I’m working on, so we’ll see how it goes…

I like them all very much… especially the second one.

It’s great to hear that you especially like that second one, as it’s the one I’m most unsure of, so now a feel a bit more confident. Thanks Sheila!

Great collections of shots here. Seems like a real interesting location complimented by lovely soft light and shading. Nicely captured.

Yes, it is quite an interesting location, and so very quiet, which is what I wanted to bring across in these shots, the solitude. Thank you so much for the kind compliments.

I like the first one the best, I think its the strongest composition.

I like the way you managed to put the decay and the light at work to create a compelling series. Difficult to choose a favorite, as each is special in its own way.

Thanks sifrim! Yeah, light was the most important thing I had in mind when going to this location, I was really keen on getting that right.
