    Default School building

    Walked past this recently. It's a long disused, old school building with all the welcoming warmth of a severe correctional facility of somekind.

    Very moody image Derek. Glad I didn't attend school there.

    Superb image - you might wish to pop in and obtain corrective guidance on the spelling of 'severe' Derek! ;-)

    I like the building. With the windows exposed and warm lighting inside, I think it could be rather a welcoming place.

    I've written it out 100 times and corrected it. Thanks.

    It looks more like an illustration than a photo. Is that a clotted cream sky behind the school or a large wall?

    When I first looked at this photo the first thing that came to my mind was that it looks like something straight out of a Charles Dikens Novel. Well done Derek

    The background intrigues me!
    It looks like wallpaper?!

    Wall paper, clotted cream. Actually its an old plaster texture overlaid and blended to the image.

    I was wondering how you got the picture to look like that, thanks for giving a bit of the secret here
