I know what "time out" means in America. When you're bad you have to sit in a corner, time out, until your mam says you can leave? Yeah. I can see why this could be a little creepy and maybe even a little scary, like a ghost story. The ghost comes back and gets people by going, "Time out for you now." Ouch. I like how you modeled the floor and the one plant growing out of it.
this is very incredible. i was thinking this was a place that had aged over time - you had photographed maybe years later - done photo manip. but realize now this is fully rendered [if this is the correct terminology]. it's quite moving.

I think the story behind it is isolation. I never had Time Out when I was young, it was only an American thing, so I think that's why people don't get it. Although shouldn't the ''time out'' are be away from the door? That is the most busiest and noisiest place in the room! Just a thought. Lovely photo with deep meaning!
*i saw the link for this on Michael's comments* hahaha
this came out very nice! I love the sunlight , the broken floor and the little plants growing through it - the're very small, some might not even notice, but they sure make a HUGE difference, it even makes me want to do it in one of my own works someday XD
there are things that i think you could do to make it an even stronger piece, for example, some moss, broken windows, leaves all over the floor, and maybe you could even use particles to simulate those very tiny bugs and dust that are all over the place once you enter a forest or anywhere near it. Also, I think that the wood at the top looks new, the only real damage i see there is that it's broken, the walls at the top could have some leaking or anything that would give a darker color between the wall itself and where the wood is in contact with it, same thing for the windows. In the descreiption you say it's a place with a lot of history, but in an overall it looks more like the place was destroyed a few weeks ago.
it still looks great though, you have a very good potential, i hope that what i had to say ever helps you on your next works! congrats!
Impressive work. The floor boards in the sunlight in front look great! I wont go into detail here but if you want, I could give you a full critique.
I can see how "Damaged" has influenced you. Thank you for showing me this though. It feels amazing to know I have influenced someone so greatly as to make a whole new piece of art. Keep practicing, if you don't have a job in CG or VFX yet, I am sure you will soon.
