I like this picture. This is one that should be 22" wide and in a frame.

This is very cool. The treatment is very effective for this scene. I am curious about the original image and what you did to achieve this result.

@Laurie: Thank you. I had to work quite hard with processing to achieve this image. Lots of layering of NIK filters in Photoshop to get the final result.

Claude Gagné from St-Georges, Canada

Lots of atmosphere! Excellent!

Looks like a dream/nightmare, but in a good way.

Depressing dark scene. A little too centered, but that does not detract from the overall grimy feel. Good job.

@Daniel: Thanks. My feeling is that it is good to break the 2/3 "rule" now and then. :-) Centering can actually make the scene more unsettling. Take for instance the films of Stanley Kubrick. He uses very symmetrical framing of his scenes which lend them a very unique and more surreal quality.
