  1. Here is my comment. WOW! Great work. I think it’s so cool that you people want to do this. I wasn’t sure. Feel free to ask others to join in.
    Image 1: just great. maybe a grungy edit? A bit too pink maybe. Great concept and execution. Makes me wanna cry.
    Image 2: is that a tilted horizon? Just kidding. Peaceful, quiet but not sure about ‘Abandoned’ Technically excellent image and good comp.
    Image 3: Great shot, love the ‘peek a boo’ with the door. What’s in there? Very colourful, bright even. Good strong shot.
    Image 4: See my comments a couple posts back
    Image 5: Great light, comp and edit. Where is she? a sense of place would maybe tell a better story. What ever that means;) Strong image
    Image 6: Technically strong. Is that HDR I see? Subtle use of HDR. A bit bright maybe. Lots of colour. Maybe a mone ‘sombre’ edit would be more suitable?

    Image 1: Interesting idea, I like it. the colour of the bear is nice and I like how it is worn and dirty, yet still reaching for the sky.
    Image 2: I think turning this B&W and adding an interesting filter.. say brush strokes- cross hatch :).
    Image 3: My idea of something abandoned is dark and mysterious. I like this image, but I would have liked to see it much darker and ominous. Great work!
    Image 4: Beautiful. I like the idea, I like the blur, I like the composition. It’s a great shot, nice work!
    Image 5: I took this photo. I lit it with one SB-800 Speedlight directly above head. Post processing included levels, colour variations, Blur, sharpen.
    Image 6: Similar to image 3. I like it but I would have liked to see it much darker.

    Good luck on the next category everybody.

    Image 1: I love the idea of it, truly “abandoned”
    Image 6: Looking very abandoned but I’m thinking the use of colours and brightness is taking away from the abandoned feeling. Still like it though!
    Image 2: Feeling like it’s a little blah and missing something to really make it pop. But the subject is really great!

    Image 5 really caught my eye. Great edit, it really drew me in. I like how it has a cold tone to it, adding to the abandoned look. There is no background to tell the story; but thats what I like, she has left her world and everything in it. She is truly alone. Two thumbs up Levi!!

    Image 1: Cute, and represents a different kind of abandoned than most would normally think of.
    Image 2: This is nice, not the typical abandoned scene…but certainly abandoned.
    Image 3: I think if the door was a little more off ceneter it would make the whole image much more attractive. But very interesting.
    Image 4: Very cool and unique. Rule of thirds would make it better though.
    image 5: Interesting. Is this done in black and white Levi?? I think it would be better if the natural tones of her skin came though.
    Image 6: Very cool. I do not agree that it needs to be darker to represent abandoned. I think it is perfect the way it is with the light and colour 🙂
