    I like the combination of old and new, Alan. We spent several days in WV a couple of years ago, and we were surprised with so much history that is still visible. I thought of it as a black and white paradise!

  3. Thanks for looking, John. This area where I live is seething with the history of the coal mining wars especially.

    Alan,
    really like #1. Somehow it reminds me of a (hihg) school of the sixties when I grew up. I hope it's not in use anymore?

    And what was the function of #2? Also very nicely done!
     
  5. Thanks for looking, Rob. Nope, it's not in use. If you look closely you can see through the windows on the top right that there is no roof. The structure in #2 is not used for anything either. I don't know what it was used for back in the day. Thanks again for looking.

    Alan, I really like image 1. It has an eerie feeling to it, hard to describe. You should definitely do something more with it pp wise.
     
  7. Thanks for looking. I am such a novice. Would you have any suggestions? I have a straight on shot of that building as well, but I liked the angled shot the best. Maybe a little vignette?
     
  8. May be extreme, but I tried to make it look scary......

  10. I like the way you made the color jump out, Omar, and then fade to B&W. It sure draws attention to the building. Great job.

    No problem Alan, I'm sure you can do a lot more with it. The building is just cool.
     
  12. Posted on Nikonians a couple of days ago? Either that or becoming clairvoyant or something?!

    Great shots, I like them all, I like the reflection in the last one best.
     
  16. Thanks so much. I didn't see that reflection until I was home working with the pictures. Then it made me wish I hadda repostioned and got a lot more of the reflection in the mud hole.

    Very nice. Good to see some pictures from home, I'm from Raleigh county, wv myself. There are many old places and building like that in Wv, an unfortunte side effect of the declining economy of the state. Good pics!
     
  18. Thanks. I have 2 kids who live in Raleigh County.
