First of all, I love the concept. The panorama view used here works neatly to show the the theater the way it is. It leaves nothing to the imagination, except for how it once may have been. The lighting gives the whole a thrilling aspect, underlining the mess it now is, but the glory it once had. Quite a history. And I like history. I can imagine this place could be used for a film, it's an excellent setting. The debris strewn out over the place adds more and more detail to the place, there's no space left that hasn't a story of it's own. In short: This piece is one of the best I have ever seen.

Alright, I'm going to warn you right now that I might start just rambling, because I'm still kind of in awe from viewing this, but I'll do my best. I love the concept, I don't believe I've ever seen the theater of an abandoned asylum before, and the very idea is something that would keep me deep in thought for days, and it makes it even better because you seem to have a choice in what exactly you're seeing- some might just see "the end" of it all, like a post-apocalyptic scene and the pronounced destruction, or some people may find beauty within the destruction. In terms of vision and technique, I must say that this looks like a scene from a movie, and whenever I look at it- I almost expect to see it moving! I really like how the sunlight is coming through into the room, it might even be considered the bright side of the whole situation, because without all the holes- the sunlight wouldn't be able to get in. The quality of the picture is outstanding, and I feel like I'm really there. As far as impact goes, I stared at this image for 3 minutes straight, and I didn't even realize I wasn't blinking. In fact, I'm STILL in awe. I hope this critique was helpful, I tried my best. ^_^

Great title!! This must have been a magnificent place in its day. Really effective combination of fisheye and lighting make this shot extra special. Man, you are like a German Richard Nickel. Speaking of, you might think about trying b/w more, as well. Not that your color shots aren't moving!

Beside the lighting (which is absolutely perfect), the fact that this contains SO many details makes it extremely special.

One more thing. Many Panorama pictures are ruined by the "Bending" of the scenery. In this picture, the bending actually adds to the feeling of scene.

Beautiful! My homeland is Berlin, and you often find tons of old wreckage like this from before the war.

Love the panorama view, really great perspective!
