    Interesting mix of horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines. Beautiful brown tones. Very strong abandoned industrial building atmosphere. Thanks for sharing, Giorgos.

    What a great abandoned place with beautiful industrial tones and interesting details.
    I think cropping the upper and lower part out could make the image more effective - I posted a WS...
    Well captured, Giorgos - if you have some more shots taken there, please post them, too.

    Great Gas works shot again, Mesut.
    Usually I find all kinds of graffitis, tags etc. painted on the walls of abandoned places quite distracting. But this red heart with vivid dark background is an exception - it´s just great.

    Still, I would prefer off-centered composition. I would also crop the upper part out to emphasize the simplicity. I posted a WS.

    Lonely tree is quite a common choice of subject but the realization still works very well. Simple, beautiful and very Italian image. I especially like the combination of brown and grey colors. Excellent work.

    What a great abandoned place shot! You have captured the atmosphere well. Very interesting subject with beautiful colors and textures. Nice contrast between the walls and armchair. As a detail I like how the color of the fabric works with the colors of the walls.
    This gas work looks very interesting - I´m looking forward to see more shot from you taken there...

    Everything is just perfect here - real National Geographic stuff, I think.
    Great eye, great timing. So simple and so effective result.
    As a detail I like the triangle of light pointing the head of the woman.

    It´s like a danish version of Ponte Vecchio in Florence...
    Very interesting subject, nice play of tones. Those silhouettes behind the windows is a nice detail. I guess the bridge would look even more beautiful in morning/evening light. Well done in any case.
    I like your framing, but I would crop the image tighter – posted a WS...

    Great shot. Very effective combination of colors. Beautiful wooden objects.
    I like how the green color of the oars appears also in the water – but I still would crop the image to make it more mysterious and simplier. Posted a WS...

    Great old tractors. Very interesting view – almost surrealistic.
    Could be a scene of a movie by Aki Kaurismaki...
    Beautiful morning light makes beautiful shadows, too.

    I would crop from the bottom to make the image more panoramic.

    I like the simple background – it relally adds a lot to the image.
    I find the centered position of the dragonfly a bit distractive – so, I would crop a bit from the right and the top... I would prefer the simplier frame, too.
    Very good shot in any case.

    Great idea and work-out. Your partial desaturation works well and the reflections really are the spot-on!
