    I have been meaning to take this picture all week but some inconsiderate person kept parking their car in front of the building.......so, Saturday came and the car went :clap:

    Processed to give it a bit of a dark decaying look, I think it works.

    nice pic, i like how it's darker on the edges then gets lighter in the middle.

    quite an interesting pic and there are lots of different adjustments you could do to the pic to give it a different look depending what effect you wanted it to portray. just had a play with it and boosted the contrast in the sky and played with curves to add some redness into the sky

    don't think i'd take my car there though!!

    Thanks. I added the vignetting to the RAW file which gave the darker edges (I quite like that 'effect' at the moment)

    Feel free to post up some of your edits, it would be interesing to see someone elses take on the picture.

    Nice one. Amazing how a bit of vignetting can make something look quite moody. Looks like a dump - you've captured the atmosphere nicely. I was going to have "urban decay" for my comp theme this month and this would have suited it very well.

    Nice urban shot :thumbsup:
    Your totally correct Vignettes and old or old looking go together so well. It's that old Lomo look to the shot which does it.

    Always happy to butcher other peoples photographs. I thought i'd go with a Monty Python feel.

    @ Steve - great photo, really atmospheric. I like adding vignetting to my shots too.

    @ Liquid - hehe, love your version, very funny!
