Incredible concept. That sense of hope represented by the tree and the light among all the destruction is beautiful. It makes one think that no matter what happens there is always that ray of hope! Very inspirational. It made me see my light of hope today! Thank-you for sharing your amazing art piece!

Although it's abandoned, through the glass window letting the sunshine from outside, one can see hope.

This reminds me of something I once dreampt. It was years ago, but I remember the dream as if I'd just awoken from it.
Very nice.

I really love abandoned places, there's always such a historic feel whether it actually had much of a history or not. Really cool! :thumbsup:

An abandon place has a story all of its own, that in some ways should be told...I always find it interesting how diferent an abandon house is to an old movie theater is. Awesome photo dude! Better than the ones I took :D

Oh wow I love the added graffiti. There is so much contrast. The clean-looking outdoors to the dirty, ruined, man-made house. The dull lifeless colors to the bright, warm colors. The modern graffiti to the ancient architecture. This is awesome. <3

Wow, Powerful and the movement in this piece is quite fluid. The dismay walls seems as though the hope is far from sight, and then your eyes continue to move onward to the light and the autumn colors awaiting you outside the doorway. :heart:

Wonderful! Quite clear why this received such an honor. :)

Yeah, figures it'd be the city responsible for it. My hometown is guilty of similar things, though not exactly with a house like that one.
