This is an abandoned factory that made torpedos, etc. for world war 2.

the abandoned aspect comes through, seems a bit over exposed, there looks like there might be good texture on the glass and window mullions that could be interesting.

Thanks for the input! This is one of many photos I took of the old factory. Maybe this wasn't the best shot to submit for this assignment. I should have tried the auto mode instead of stopping the camera down. I'll work on keeping things at a better exposure. How would you rate the composition? I'm stoked about joining FM.com.

There is a lot of history there, good and bad.
Best,
Steve

As far as composition, I would have tried to line up the window mullions/frame with the borders of the image, not always centered, but at least lined up, they have good texture. Expose for those areas, as it is, it looks metered for a weighted average, causing the darks to be visible, but the highlights are blown.

I have no objection to you posting the re-working of the photo I submitted.
Best,
Steve

Welcome Steve. Nice idea for the shot. You've gotten some good advice from travis and Barb. I hope to see you back with another entry next week.
