No real "mixed message" per se intended here. The warmth is mostly just an aesthetic one, yet it is in context to "showcase" the warm light @ that hour of the day ... albeit a different hue than we typically associate to it. In that regard, I guess it is a bit of a "compare & contrast" play of a welcome basking in the warm light vs. the unwelcoming aura of the decay & trespass.
Good to hear that the POV, lines etc. are evident, as they could be a bit "busy" or "sublime" to some.
For me it is one of those shots you just kinda "feel" like you need to shoot, without knowing why ... so, yes ... I didn't "have a specific point or message" (at least I couldn't identify it at the time) when I took it, except maybe to give you something to "think" (nebulous imagination) about as generated from the various elements or the comp as a whole.
The PP on this began as a test experimentation, as I'm beginning to play with channel masks with some deliberate intent. Thought I'd post it up to give others a chance to take a shot or two at me for a change ... glad you like it.
Here's the raw/sooc for comp/play.
