Absolutely lovely! I haven't ever seen anything like this before.. there is a sense of tranquility in the whole picture, and something special about the building. It looks like some mystical house for fairies or something; a bit like a dream. Good lighting, and good angle. Nice! :+fav:

Very unusual and interesting. Zoomed out, it doesn't look like much, but zoomed in the detail is amazing. The muted colors work beautifully. That building really pops. Amazing shot.

Hi, thanks for your comments and the fav. Yes, it is a photomontage of a series of exposures (the full size image is very, very big.) :)

Thanks... it has a funny aspect ratio because it's actually a small version of a gigapixel panoramic image, made of a series of photographs stitched together.

OMG this is so good. So creepy and abandoned looking. How did you get this picture. I wish I could find stuff like this. I acually had a fasination with cameras before and had thought about being a photographer but drawing was more appealing to me. This is so kewl....

This is really dreamlike; wonderful. Is it possible for me to use this picture as a reference for an illustration of that building? I've been really wanting to do some architectural drawings lately and this one is perfect!
