You have a very wonderful way of captivating the feel of the places you photograph. I almost don't need to ask what the walls would say if they could talk, they are speaking to me through the cracked paint and rubble. I really enjoy the bright blue on the ceiling, it has a very cosmic feel to it. Your composition is wonderfully balanced in all areas. I am especially astonished by the use of light. Your attention to detail is also very impressive. From the wood work, down to the smallest piece of broken tile, I can only imagine how beautiful this space must have been when it was first built. Phenomenal work!

The first thing you notice when you look at this is the deep contrast of the bright, cheery blue ceilings with the dull walls and floors. It adds to the sense that this place was once very significant. I think you could have used the lighting a bit differently to add to that effect, but it still does help that cause. My eyes are drawn to the rubble on the floor, the focal point seems slightly disputed. But overall, it really does tie together perfectly, from the slight greenery showing at the stairs, to the intricate designs of the windows. (Sorry if this doesn't make sense, first critique. I tried to make it sound as professional as possible.)

I need to make a fortune so I can buy this place and do it up before someone knocks it down. If they haven't already...

Oh wow. I wish I could go there. I would wander the ruins for hours just imagining what it was like to live there.
