This picture is a natural picture, I havent retouched this whatsoever, however, when we see it the building was a natural yellow colour, however, whne I took the picture it came out green. It gave a eerie feeling about the place.
It is a constant reminder of the past.

It's a bit too dark for my liking. What is the story behind it? I undertand what you mean when you say it looks eerie!

The building does look creepy, which means you captured the scene very well. The green shade and general darkness add to the "something's wrong" feeling as well...

The green color made me think : "My god the building is still radioactive!"
Well done. maybe you could lighten up a bit.

Nice, and the colours have come out similar to my Chinese flag picture that you commented on. I think since we were both using Sony cameras, it was a similar lighting and similar white balance setting.
I think it could be about 1 stop lighter and also the fluorescent light at the bottom is a distraction, so you could edit it out. But other than the fluro light, I like the way the other lights contrast with the green exterior, again if it was a bit lighter there may have been a bit more detail visible inside the building which would make it an even better picture.

This is interesting because long exposures on color negative film will end up yielding a green tint. I didn't realize digital cameras give the same effect. Could be a defect or wrong setting in the camera though.

Good shot of this unfortunate building, but a reminder to us all
