    I love derelict buildings I think they make for great photography and these pics are no exception. The HDR effect has worked really well, great set of pics.

    I really like the second two. The first one feels like its missing something. For my tastes, I'd like to see more punch.

    I love the second one, it has a very strong HDR look without going overboard and making things too saturated and textured. As for the first one, I think the sky needs to be pushed a little harder, it's a great photo all round but the sky just looks kind of flat to me compared to the building and ground/plants. Out of curiosity what program are you using for HDR?

    Thanks everyone for the comments and looking.
    @dylandingo Photomatix Pro 4.2 was used. First shot was 5 bracketed exposures and the second and third were single tonemapped (so not true HDR) images.
    As for the sky in picture one I was a little unsure what effect to give it....maybe a grey neutral colour with more depth would have been better.
    Thanks again.

    I like the first one.
    Number 2 is a style I've seen overdone too many times, although the actual scene is a good one.
    I read it was tonemapped from a single file so obviously that hits me.
    The first one is definitely good, and the sky is fine to me.

    Thanks..just goes to show how we all have different tastes! I saw the style of picture 2 in other photos and wanted to emulate that....now all i have to do is fine-tune for my own stlye.
