he hated the bland composition. it's centered and doesn't have a strong focal point. there's not enough grayscale in it. and the tree is compositionally distracting. he had his reasons, and it breaks all the rules. i just happen to like it anyway.

It doesn't look so scary as much as it looks mysterious. There's always a mystery to old structures, and granted some older structures do look somewhat frightening, but that isn't the case here. I really love the feeling that I'm actually standing in front of it.

Your teacher is one hell of a blind bastard. He better eat his words when you become a famous photographer.

oh, by the way... you're talking about waterloo village near rt 80 in new jersey?
i was going pass the exit to this village countless times when i was going to PA, to my new home, and i was wondering what's in there...

if you want to visit waterloo you'd better hurry b/c they're tearing it down soon. it's a historic village. they have horses, sheep, etc. they lead tours and talk about how things were done in the old days, but mostly it's one big photo opp.

in his words: the composition is too bland, it doesn't follow the rule of thirds, the tree is distracting, i don't have a particular focal point, and there isn't enough grayscale. lol.

as for the b/w... it was shot with an SLR camera and b/w film. i processed and developed it myself.

Good shot - something a little sinister almost - it's the open door to the dark - like your being watched from in there :o Or maybe I'm paranoid :P

thanks again. glad you like it. i never got the scary feel to it... but everyone here seems to see it so i guess it's there. it is kind of a creepy building in b/w, i guess i lost that feel since i was there on a bright sunny and colorful day.

Yeah, that might be it. You've seen the version in colors, and we haven't (or at least I haven't). That often changes how one feel about a picture. :)
