Thanks! Last time I went past that area I found an abandoned house across the road and later learned thats where the shopkeepers family lived...I really enjoyed learning a bit of its history :)

This is wonderful...love the slope of the land and the old ramshackle building. The image has a lovely painterly feel :)

Oh my, this old building is more than past its prime. But you have worked a bit of redemption for it with this lovely photo!
Thanks so much Ann. I was glad to have found it ..it had a lot of personality :)

Excellent structure for a photograph. I love the colors as well, the way the red and gold play off one another is much like how one lays gold leaf--first painting deep red and then laying the leaf over it.

Thank you lordtemplar! I once saw a whole room in Norway which had gold gilded & hand painted walls from the 1800s.. amazing place.

I really like this shot. I generally go out looking for old buildings because I like the textures and the wonderment of the history. Generally, I'll shoot these in Infrared. If there's good color or contrast,I'll set up for an HDR. You've really got me thinking about incorporating this style with the old building shots. Great shot. ~ Tony

Thanks! I haven't done much infrared yet, nor any HDR. Generally I have used B&W or sepia on old buildings .. I think in some ways these warmer tones are, visually, connected with sepia...what works for sepia would likely work in warm colors.
