Vision: 4 stars

Despite *angelreich mentioning in the Artist's Comments that Lodz is home to many buildings dating as far back as the nineteenth century, this looks apocalyptic. He says he wanted to show the darkest side of the city; although I've never been, and therefore can't say whether he has succeeded, I know I don't need to go to know that this is dark.

Originality: 4 stars

There are lots of photographs of urban and rural areas, and I've seen lots of variations on this theme, so I award three stars. I give it an extra star because out of all the ones I've seen, I don't think I've seen anything as attention-grabbing as this.

Technique: 4 stars

I love the lighting, timing and setting of this piece.

Impact: 5 stars

I think it's stunning, and the 15,000+ deviants who have faved this piece have collectively spoken loudly and clearly. What more can I say?

What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
83 out of 91 deviants thought this was fair.

It is a really great shot of a dirty street!
It looks like a setting for a Mafia-Movie !
This photo gives you a really dark feeling about what might lurk behind the next corner .
As long as i look on this picture i remember the street discribed in the short story Pickmans Model by Hovard Phillips Lovecraft .
It seems to be the perfect place for all kind of unknown evil !
Also it may fit in a story about war .
Just imagine this place as part of Stanley Kubriks Full Metal Jacket !
Anyway this photo can really turn on your darkest fantasys !
Keep up this good work ,i cant wait to see more of your works.

This would be perfect for a Pink Floyd album art

This will probably be a very random comment, but this looks like it can be the realistic version of the Raccoon City incident aftermath from the Resident Evil video games franchise. The photo is very eerie, full of mystery, and can tell a sad story ( but not in a bad way). Beautiful.

Nice capture, lots of emotion

Wonderful photograph. It is almost a comment on the state of human civilisation, bleak and run down, but with a small hint of hope represented by the cross in the window at the end.

This is so cool, I love the dark eeriness of it all
ElPerroGratis Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
The slightly off-set balance effectively induces a dreary tone, along with the obvious BW. Adversely, the viewer has to notice the recurrent useage of The Cross throughout the piece, spurring one to think about the artist's intentions. Considering the title of the piece, one wonders if the artist's views on redemption are cynical or real. The juxtaposition of the police car against the empty cart adds a touch of sardonic humor that this viewer (at least) appreciated. Hopefully appropriately. The only life one sees is the mongrel, scavenger dog. xMEGALOPOLISx, i can tell that you are very opportunistic with your art and can see it everywhere, never missing a moment's expressive nature. Thank you
