This is an old Route 66 stop along i40.

I like it, I like the sun rays, the flare, very nice.

I really like this. There are so many colors available. If you could have layered the pool lighter and cropped in a bit tighter I think this would have been a slam dunk. Great vision though and well done.

Neat find... Like Twisted I wish for a tighter crop... I would love to see the pool photographed with a 15mm Fisheye... Good Luck

Thanks for the comments/feedback. I'll have to play with some of the crop options. I had a few others from different angles but didn't have time to really look them all over before the deadline.

I like it as is, it is not as in your face, the graffiti is not the only subject, your eye can look through and discover more in the image than if it had been cropped tight, with more emphasis put on the pool graffiti or the building and its artwork. It has more of a sense of place shot wider, even if that place seems desolate and remote, I think that adds to the intrigue of the image, how did the skaters and what not pick this seemingly remote place...just seems there is a good story here.

Just my take on it, I like it as is.
