Abandoned - Chair in Room
Here is another one of those typical red brick buildings in Zyrardow, Poland. In all those factories they used to make high quality linen. It all started around 1830. In the 19th century it was a booming business. Two world wars did not do much good. But after communism everything got bankrupt and destroyed. The companies were not organized to compete in open markets.
To prevent everyone going in, they placed metal bars. It might look like a prison but it is not. Below is laying snow.
TECH-INFO: very similar as all my other images of the abandoned series
. Here 9 shots with each a stop difference were needed to cover the huge range of light. For the users of Photomatrix Pro: when the contrast is very very high, it's difficult to get natural looking results. Turning the highlight smoothing to the position low helps to bridge the dark and lighter parts but the result is mostly too flashy, arty farty and not natural looking at all. Instead try setting the micro contrast on minus ten, like I did here. Afterwards in Photoshop I enhanced the contrast and colors a lot to make it much more poppy.
