An abandoned house in the country near Bologna, which I found yesterday. Despite the building is almost in ruin, there was this table with bottles and a pumpkin, which was rather funny. Maybe a good place to celebrate Halloween.
I think that old abandoned buildings are an interesting subject for photography. They usually have walls with a mixture of soft tones and colors. The best light, I think, is without direct sunlight. A bright cloudy day is perfect.

Just catching a glance of the thumbnail I thought "this must be Smarcell". And so it was. It would have been a fine picture even without the table, because of the texture and colours of the wooden window and the faded wall. The table with its "nature morte" adds a funny twist.

Nice one, Stefano, a very good composition with the shut window and the table placed in the corners and "connecting" through the main diagonal, some greenery is also a nice addition. I like the peculiar atmosphere of the shot, nice contrast between the colourful pumpkin and the monochrome shutter.

The vivid yellow pumpkin and the green leaves make contrast with the washed pastels of the old wall. Nice, artistic job!

A very fine 'still life' type of shot. There's a lot of wall in this one, but the superb placement of the window and the table of bottles and pumpkin, and the textures in the wall, make this a really appealing shot. The little bits of colour - orange, green, faint blue - really stand out in this very subtle shot. Delightful shot.

Sembra il corrispettivo fotografico di una *natura morta*, un genere tanto caro alla pittura.
Le sfumature i toni e il soggetto usati portano a questa conclusione... ma lo scatto è perfetto, s'intende, e mi piace.

Beautiful concept. One of the nice still life shots I had seen today.

looks almost like a painting... the patterns on the wall looks great and the table with the bottles and the pumpkin add a touch of life to it i think... congrats stefano...

Ancora un muro rosa, questa volta malandato ma bellissimo comunque, la descrizione è dettagliata e nitida. Di nuovo un curioso elemento contrastante: la tavola imbandita.
Bello anche il po' di verde in basso.

molto bello il contrasto tra il posto abandonato e quello non abandonato con colori vivaci.

I could swear that this wa a stage set!, waitung for the actors to make their entrance. But this is for real and what fun. How I love the pumpkins and wine. The people who arrange the table are meant to enjoy life.
Love the colours and textures of stone and wood.

fantastica immagine (nel senso che sembra uscita da una favola)! bellissima la superficie del muro, con una definizione perfetta della muratura, e incredibile il contrasto con il tavolo apparecchiato...

Abandoned? Hum,I have to believe you, even if the inviting table tells the contrary.
It makes me think about my trip in Europe, when we will dine on a table, in the backyard of the B&B, and taste the local delicacies...
Une nature morte well presented, good colors without surex. softness all around.Well balanced between the window and the table.

Often we found scenes that deserve to be captured, but it is necessary masters to catch them. Nice composition and helpful note

wonderful composition. Typical italian beverages and table.if this place is abandoned, it is ironic because the setting is very lively. Most italian gardens seem to be small but fun to spend time at.
