Abandoned - Too old and now destroyed


This is one of the buildings which is currently destroyed. I shot it last year but now it's gone. Only a hole and stones are left. I wonder what will be in a few months or years. A better view of this structures can be seen here. If you have a good look you see that there is nothing good inside anymore. In the neighbor places are many red brick buildings and factories getting restored and turned into lofts.


TECH-INFO: for getting a maximum amount of details and covering the high contrast I shot 9 JPG's to make a HDR file and tone-map it in Photomatix. A few contrast tweaks and a B/W conversion were done in Photoshop. Also the perspective is corrected (my lens was pointed upwards) and the image is cropped.

Jumps right out Paul, love the way hdr captures all the interior detail and a fantastic conversion
awesome crop and dito processing
Interesting conception - a trifle too hdr'd for my taste - but it certainly brings the textures out!
You really are a master with this type of processing Paul, this really has a gritty look to it.

Intense black and white image. Great amount of chaos but all managed nicely in the framing...excellent.
