This picture emanates perfection. Everything, from the light to the perspective, is absolutely flawless. The choice of location is certainly appropriate, because the wonderful neo-Gothic architecture sharply contrasts with the dusty desolation of its condition. I particularly love the color balance, which helps to create an aura of mystery and dilutes the drama of degradation, highlighting the refined finish of the place. The charm is accentuated by the fact that the decay of the site is not immediately clear, because the light in the upper part shows the almost untouched beauty of the architectural friezes. It is only the lower part, in the shadows, which reveals the state of abandonment of this magical location. Wonderful work.

This is image is visually stunning in many ways.. First to start off with the originality, its something that I've never seen before, and brings me into the image as if I was standing right there. Next the vision, it looks like your trying to capture mainly the architectural side, but as I go back and visually study the image I realize that theres no one around in the shot.. Has that sort of urban emptiness feel which I have a soft spot for. Now I know my critique is very bias since I'm not covering every single detail, but I believe that the every photographer has their own way of thinking on how he/she is going to compose the final shot and its not up to me to be the judge of that. :D

How is it that some of man's most magnificent creations are forgotten? Such a shame...you can almost see the shadows of the people in this shot. Makes you wonder who was there...

A true master of visual art and light, the architecture is allowed to show what it was, and now is.

I would love to see this for real, or rendered in a 3D game, the artist has created so much atmosphere with each shot, it lends the mind to so much imagination, would fit well in AC.

I don't think I have seen anything this good that wasn't heavily doctored, these are all quality images.

Truly amazed and interested in this work.

 

Thank you

It reminds me of a train station, I can imagine the people in vintage wear strolling and waiting with various luggage for their next destination.

What do you mean by "Abandoned Zone?" Is there an entire area in Poland that is abandoned? I'm going to ask my brother... He spent two years in Poland! Yes he can speak perfect Polish! No he doesn't have a dAmn account, I recently sold him my old SLR to learn photography and he really needs to load his traditional art...
