Hi there. really nice plase to shoot photography. So at first good things... I like the light colors here, then I really appreciate the central composition of whole empty spaces. that blue light coming from doors is amazing. Quality of picture is good, enough details and sharp.
HDR. I have big issue with too much HDR, and here it is for me little bit too much, it doesnt look real, I am missing contrast of black and white there, of shadows and lights... it is now like behind some smoggy screen. So that is for me main minus. ;) Wish you the best. it is good photo. sorry for my english, I know it is not 100% correct from my site (mean language, not critique) m.

So these things are just sitting out in the middle of no where and you can just go walk into them?

It's such a pity people are letting a wonder like this fade away...
Was it quiet inside?

It's such a pity that it has been abandoned... a crime, I'd say! :pissed:
Anyways, beautiful shot!

I love how it feels like the sides are opposites, especially with the blue room versus the orange/red one seen through the doors. Beautiful photo. <3

Usually, abandoned buildings creep me out, they remind me of lost hopes, dead dreams. But your photos bring a warmth and reverence to them. Very nice.

Your work is beautiful! I love abandoned places. Really enjoy your use of color and light... your HDR really enhances each and every room.
Did you photograph the blue room to the right? I love that color coming through!

I live in the United States (in Kentucky), and I still am amazed that people abandoned places like this that were once so amazing, at least to me.  I like to imagine the kind of people that lived or worked there, what they work, what the place must have looked like when it was at its most beautiful.  I can only imagine the stories that led to places like this being abandoned...loss of fortunes, wars, lack of heirs?

 

I am not asking about the particulars of this place, but do you ever look up the history of the places you photograph?

I'm so envious that you have these amazing places to explore, I live in Las Vegas NV and there is NOTHING like this here.
Thank You and keep sharing your amazing finds.
