...and if your head explodes with dark forebodings too, I'll see you on the dark side of the moon. Pink Floyd
This mental hospital/insane asylum was built in the late 1800's and was in use until the 1970's. If these walls could talk we probably wouldn't want to know what tey had to say. The atmosphere was very dark and forboding but the day was beautiful, bright with clear blue skys so I decided to do a little fun PP to get a better (worse?) vibe. Hope you enjoy.

Wow, that is one creepy looking photo, the lighting reminds me of Frankenstein.

Still a very cool looking picture none the less.

Nah, get rid of the lightning. It doesn't really even look that real and it doesn't add anything to the photo. The photo looks pretty good although the building is a little too dark. I like the first photo the most though.

IMHO, the lightning in the first picture looks OK.
In the 2nd picture, it is "overdone" and doesn't look that real. Also it does not add anything to the photo.
As for the 1st photo, it looks pretty good although the building is a wee on the darker side.
ANyway, thanks for sharing.

Could we see some photos from inside?

P.S. The lightning doesn't work for me either.
