No idea, but I do know whose find, and commend you for that. Hope you played a bit more with this wall (say, less grass, lower horizon level and so on).
Samarth: not a chance, this is definitely the way i wanted it composed because it leaves room for the imagination...

Certainly it would be mine...if I did not have the benefit of your beautifully realised images to gaze upon every now and again.
Samarth: too kind ray, too kind...

Samarth: true...

Always difficult to say what another saw. Over the last few weeks I have left of my own comments (mostly pictures with a message) to see what other people will see in the pic. It is a very interesting approach.

What I see is the window and a lighter area stretching to the entrance like a bundle of light. And always with these old buildings I wonder what little dramas happened here.
Samarth: well, the light is what i WANTED to see but yes, i too dream of what has happened in places like this...
great dark edges, makes it a better photo...
Samarth: thanks a lot chantal...

I said it before and I'll say it again : one of your best if not the best. 'Nuff said.
Samarth: grin
Great details and lighting here.

That's an intriguing shot. Mysterious altered doorway, blocked windows, textured stonework. Like it!
Samarth: thank you chris...

Interesting image. Nice lighting and color.
Samarth: always a bit wary of the word 'interesting' wink
The softened, weathered aspect of the place echoes out from this photo.
Samarth: thanks a lot...
Just beautiful Samarth! Not sure if it is my favourite but it is way up there. There is a softness and a clarity at the same time. Beautiful my friend
Samarth: your approval, as always, gladdens me...
Viktor is right this wall has a lot of potential. This is one of a possible series of very good shots
Samarth: thank you bill...
When I see shots like this, I think, what were the lives of the people who built this like. They had no idea what life would be like now in our time. Good image placement and lighting Sam. smile
Samarth: thank you tom...
Belle lumière, belle composition, belle couleurs, beau piquet, beau cadrage. Une très belle photo
Samarth: grin...

Samarth, this for me is a very good picture, I see the drama in it, such a beautiful place left without the care that needs it, it is ashame that the owners did not look after this hous, like they should have been.
You captured this very well.
Samarth: thank you very much...your compliments mean a lot to me...
To me it just boldly stands out.
Samarth: thank you!
Excellent shot and composition. Like the slight dark framing effect, it directs your eyes to the main composition. Great image.
Samarth: thank you john...

I think this is lovely, and very much 'my' sort of picture with beautiful warm tones of old stone .
Samarth: thank you very much ellie...

Sam, this is such a beautiful shot in both its visual and its symbolic sense.
Samarth: thank you kathryn...
V nice quality feel to this one.
Samarth: thanks again nigel...
Love love love this, the dark patch on the lower left is however little distracting.
Samarth: fair enough, advice heeded...
Very nice atmosphere in this one - Beautiful even a bit strange ! Bravo !
Samarth: grin...

the light really draws out all the textures to give a sense of age here - lovely shot
Samarth: thank you paul...
I am loving it ;-)
Samarth: thank you ashish!
Ooooh, this is a beauty. Is this HDR?
Samarth: thanks ayash...wasafrai hdr might flatten the texture of the wall so i decided to take the lighting manually...
I like what you've done with the warm colours in this shot. There's something eye popping about them.
Samarth: thanks a lot duane...probably one of my favourite shots from me (ego issues) in a while...

I am lovin this image, Sam. The vignette draws your attention inward to the beautiful details. Great processing.
Samarth: thanks kay...
