The Place after the Destruction


On the previous post you see the remainings of one of the abandoned structures in Zyrardow, Poland. This year it's gone. Only a hole with lots of stones, nicely covered with snow, is left. It almost turned into some kind of moon landscape. I was pretty amazed to see it. At first I was seeking for this building. By looking and orienting with the surrounding buildings I became sure that this is the place. The picture itself doesn't say so much but in comparison with the previous post it does (at least to me).


TECH-INFO: one RAW file of which I developed multiple exposures with DxO Optics Pro. Afterwards converted into a HDR file to tone-map it. This yields so many details in the snow. In Photoshop I made the contrasts bigger using the selective color tool by altering the blacks of the white and black color channels. Some stones in the front are made brighter and finally an irregular shaped vignette is added to change the mood.

all covered in snow, nice one
I'm glad you recorded these buildings as they made for some great pictures
The two pictures together would be really evocative.
