There are a lot of buildings like this scattered about the Taranaki countryside.
Any hints, tips, constructive criticism or comments are welcome and appreciated.

@jamesy: Yes that's how I feel too. I wonder what it looked like in its heyday.
Nicely composed,I like the wires crossing the sky.The Horizon is sloping a little I think...........

@Anthony: Damn...is it? I freely admit to having a notoriously crooked eye, I have to straighten most of my photos before posting. This one I thought was alright!?
Thanks for the comment, Anthony!
and why are there so many abandonned buildings in that countryside ?

The place looks like a story waiting to be told . . always sad to see the empty shell of someone's dreams and aspirations. To be found everywhere but it looks even more sad in that landscape. I like the presentation.

Hey now I really like how you angled this image. You are telling a story with one click; brilliant. I love structures, old and new. The old boarded up ones make me wonder about their history. Love this.

Though the images are abandoned, they could make really nice images just like this one.

Wonderful shot, I'm really interested it this old stuff, what a history wonder how old it is, maybe one of the pioneers..? The telegraph pole looks completely vertical to me, perhaps this area is on a slope.

Certainly has an air of desolation and you have captured that mood very well, Margie. Fine detail and composition.

Very good image,Margie - I love how all of the various road lines wrap around the base of the old store. Just really well seen.

nice composition and colours. the empty road, power lines and puddles reinforce the sense of desolation.

I like it. It could be a photo from anywhere you know? I think you may like to take this in different directions in post production to see where you go. You know?

@Henry: Thanks. I thought it might look cool in sepia - tried that, tried black and white conversion too. I wasn't entirely happy with either though. I can't remember why exactly, possibly something to do with the sky being too blown out.
