Roy's motel is abandonded and has been for years. It is located in the southern California desert and is frequently used as a movie location.

I shot this with a Canon 1DS Mark II. Technicals: f16.0, manual, 1/10 second, ISO 100, focal length 30.0mm using a 16-35mm zoom.

I think in general you made this a bit too dark with as a result that the picture lost much of its charm. I think by making it lighter and may increase the contrast a little this would work far better. The total picture seems to be leaning to the left somewhat.

I like what I think you set out to achieve. A sixtys style motel shot.?

i haven't seen your black & white side yet, jim. i like it. the mood in the sky here is beautifully captured. how's that for "straight and tough" critique? oh, all right, here's one: lop off a little from the bottom; just barely an inch or so to keep that dark black and a few of those sparkly tar-beach highlights. the lighting on the buildings is great...the stark shadows all work very well.

i really like the dasrkness of it, the sky is great, i would probably just clone out the little white spots in the right backround,little houses or shops?
so the focus is on the sign and motel itself.
great shot

Excellent... has a very retro, LIFE Magazine feel to it.

Marita Schreiner, 25.01.2007 um 19:00 Uhr

Yes - Excellent
The darkness reminds me of "Bates Motel"

You know, when I stayed here they didn't have any customers either. Wonder how they keep the place looking so good. Fantastic lighting and comp. Nice POV.
I have never seen one of these after eating mushrooms!!

this photo is rich in contrast, I love it

Yadran Saavedra, 27.10.2007 um 9:11 Uhr

well executed.

Hi Jim, super this great shot with amazing contrasts

Maddalena Di Gregorio, 10.01.2008 um 10:21 Uhr

I love the lighting and do not think it is too light, in fact lightening it up would turn it in to a more common shot. There is a feeling of the sun peeking through an opening in the thick dark clouds right before nightime...imminent really. As for the composition I love the contrast between the incrdibly gigantic sign and the tiny motel complex.

Actually not new as an image subject but really well done.
