Thank you! I've been getting some flack for it being centered, but it sort of calls to me. Thank you again! S-

It's not centered... I follows the rule of thirds quite nicely, in fact. Tell the pundits they don't know what they're talking about. :thumbup:

Love the colors and light, as well as the amount of sky you chose to include. Glad you left in the two elements on left (remind me of clothesline posts). I like the processing very much. In my opinion, all your choices here emphasize the feeling of your title.

This is one of those images that called to me, had to be taken and had to be processed the way it was, but that's me and I'm happy to share the original if anyone wants.

When I first saw the building I was on my way to a destination so I didn't take the time to stop, but on the way home the light was just so and I had to pull over. The composition spoke for itself so other than zooming in the set itself the way you see it. It was a clear day and rather than turn the day to night or push it to black and white it felt like it needed a bit of texture, a feeling of being lost. I'm not sure why the image called to me or what that means but I'm glad you like it. Thank you! S-
