Well, what can i say, the color is extremely well done, the environment seems to have this lost and abandoned feeling, like this place was forsaken, forgotten. The way some of the elements seem to still be fine, like the TV and the chair, give it this atmosphere of "This place may be abandoned but it is still livable", The paint peeling off the walls and the window that is missing gives it an effect that "This place is open and free, no rules, do whatever we like". It also has this sub-atmosphere of "Lonely days and lonely nights, here is will be spending them". With the forest in the background and the light softly flowing in, this picture deserves a definite 5 Stars, it captures the complete effect of "Alone and abandoned, in this forsaken place." This fully deserves an special award.

This is an amazing shot. The colors and lighting, as well as the fact that there seems to have been a fire in the room, yet there are still pieces of furniture arranged as though someone is still living there give the image an otherwordly quality (there is still a fluffy looking pillow on the bed!). I love the translucent melted light fixture and the warm orange glow coming through from the window. The entire shot is very surreal and reminds me of similar shots of abandoned spaces where it seems people left in a hurry (Chernobyl). Makes me want to know what happened here. Well done.

You should have broken the TV set and burnt that armchair (or at least damaged it in some way) before taking the picture :p

Just kidding. This photo is great.

You'd be surprised by how things of delicate electronic structure can endure. The laptop I'm using in this very moment survived a house fire, it was in a room that was effectively an oven, and was dripping water when I took it away after the fire was put down. Now it works like nothing happened! And this is just a cheap second-hand Chinese-made laptop.

So yes, this TV could be working perfectly. Breaking it to add more value to the photograph would have been a nice gesture. As for the armchair, well, I sat on things that were in much worse conditions! So it is still doing its job, too.

i love the dilapidated look here. it really points out how eventually, everything we as humans create devolves into entropy. it reminds me of some of the relationships i've had. and i guess that's why i feel a connection to your piece. beautiful! dark! wonderful textures!

The TV looks oddly out of place, as if completely unaffected like the rest of the room, it doesnt even look dusty as if someone had set it up only hours before
