You captured something both intriguing and disturbing in this photo. The light is very playful and has an aura about it with the green moss. The land will reclaim all. The mix of this seen is quite amazing, yet disturbing too. The angle you shot is as that of an observer, something someone looking in on time. You captured something special here. The clarity is there and I can see details to help put perspective of what has happened in this place. As I can see the adventure, the journey you set out on to catch this image standing still and moving at the same time.

Billiant scene,
very normalisch feeling to it though it is very unreal at the same time.

The light and opposite line of sight work very well in this shot.
A very neeth line between just enough light and darker spots, nice in balance.

composition is very naturel, this might just be because it seams pretty derserted or because this is well planned.
In both cases it would have been nice though to have one rather leading subject.
There isn't really something that makes the shot a little more vibrant.

Overall it it is a very nice captured moment.
Would have loved to see maybe a model integrated in the scene, though the scene on it's own has it's charms.

Superb scene! Nature eventually crumbles everything to dust. This has probably become a room for mice or chipmunks!

Is this real? Or did you move something in there?
I mean the walls are broken down in a way I have bnever seen, there is moss or grass on the bed and on the floor and even a little tree is growing - but (half of) the curtains are still hanging, there is a modern heating - and a TV set?

The combination looks unbelievable. Literally.

Fantastic places you find. Wish I was there to shoot these. Great work. Never ceases to amaze me at how many beautiful old buildings just left to waste. What a shame.
