Blocked from the public with a chain link fence, an historic building in Denison, TX continues to succumb to Mother Nature following work done while removing a loading dock area on the left, railroad track side of the building two years prior to me photographing here in Spring of 2012. Separate court cases are preventing anything from being done to the building and it is unclear if it can be saved at this point. With each passing storm however, Mother Nature causes a little bit more damage and another brick to fall. Soon this landmark may be gone forever.

Love the perspective, crop and low angle. However tons of haloing. I think you should come back to this shot in time and process it again. It's a good shot for sure.

Thanks again everyone. Again, the halo's in this shot are intentional. Occasionally rules are meant to be broken :) Appreciate the comments.
