I like the softness and the mood that this photo conveys. To me it is cold but also calm. A rather ominous looking sky. Nice shot.

Hmmm, I might have to agree with you about the distracting quality of the snow in the original. Also, this version above is better because the cropping allows the viewer to focus on the buildings and the sky, and the cloudy sky is great becuase it conveys the same ominous or eerie mood that the buildings do. I absolutely love the softened effect of all the tonalities and blotches on the buildings, which makes this almost unnatural, this lends to the eerieness (spelling?). You've handled the cropping and framing incredibly well since none of the peaks of the buildings are centered, nor does the gap between them sit in the center. Great POV with that slight corner and angle showing on the right-hand building, and you left in hints of that background with those sparse trees and the white sky near the lower half. Just all around gorgeous and amazing. The more I look at the shot the more I am impressed, which is what makes a photo outstanding, in my opinion. Good thin black frame to echoe the blacks inside the empty windows too. Where did you find these buildings? Do you know anything about them at all? They almost look like two giants or they look somewhat haunted. Great mood created, thanks for sharing!
Very moody shot. So are you saying that the clouds were not dark like this? This speakls of old times gone, and neglect. The tone on the buildings is very interesting, nearly ghostly. This reminds me a little of the place where they had the wedding in "Kill Bill 2". In the middle of nowhere. And yes the crop for sure helps the whole composition, perhaps you could have shot it so that the right hand side of the picture did not have the power pole to the right there, and maybe would improve the compo a bit... :)
But most interesting image. :) well done. Actualy am wanting to start a discussion about HPP as against more natural photography, I have found (as you will see in my last two posts) that I have moved so much more towards photoshop use, and am really not sure that I should be using it so much... as perhaps it adulterates the art that is photography, capturing what is infront of the lens??? What do you think?
