[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At least we have reached Lake Sevan!
I took this shot with my elder daughter on my left arm and the camera on the right hand. She was curious, who would live in such a house?! :)

So this is my first posting using a gradual density filter...
Just kidding :) it is PP...
The reason I opted to use this effect is because the picture looked more mundane than I wanted it to look :)

So my question to you is this photo rising any positive or negative feeling in you?

Thank you very much for your answers and critiques/comments.

Hi Garo:) my answer to your question: Positive feeling:) Even there are an extended area of water there are an inner armony. The structure is -imho- in the good angle and 'third' :) Thanks for sharing.

For me it is positive because this place looks so peaceful. The monochrome effect suits this image, there is no colour to interfere with the simplicity. Thanks

hello Garo,
For me its not really negative or positive. it arouses a feeling of lonesome abandonment. Perhaps a time to be alone and introspect or just abandoned and left to be...

To me it says FREEDOM in captial letters. Its is everything I love about the outdoors and expresses it very clearly - so I would guess positive, given I view my freedom that way.

It gives me a feeling of being abandoned. The structure is falling apart, and no one will probably ever fix it. Great usage of space and positioning of your subject.


Technically... i can't say... But for me the visual is very positive! I like it! Showing a good feeling of evasion!

Wow Garo.. haven't followed your work for a while... This is lovely I love your minimalist approach here.. This photo gives me a the feeling of loneliness.. now is negative or positive.. I can't tell you...

Positive,as something detached from world,a place to stay alone when you like to be with your thoughts.
Pp fits a lot.

it's very beautiful.
i feel it
s a place to think..to breath...to be yourself, introspective.

great photo!!!

2 me? no, there's only one! fine shot, thanks, no matter what you did... (curves, squares, etc...)

Hello Garo,

This is the picture type that attracts me in a lot.
Wonderful visual and composition!
