I saw these abandoned buildings in Aalborg, when traveling through Denmak on the way to Norway (2009).

Photoshop CS3 was used for processing. I used the multiply blending mode to darken the image. Then I changed the levels to then darken specific areas. Following this, I applied a warming filter (85) and 100 density. Finally, in order to lighten certian parts of the image (windows, parts of the buildings and grass area in the foreground), I used a layer mask in combination with the eraser tool.
Being a 7.1 megapixel JPEG, the image contains noise. However, I feel this adds character to the image as it looks dark and grimey.
