    You can see the sadness in the facelike wall at the back.

    Abandoned indeed – but like the mental health system in Australia! Your images say it all, Matthew.

    Hello, I love this image. Did you use HDR at all?

  • Hi Jocelyn, thanks for the comment and for stopping by! I didn’t use HDR on this one or any pics as yet, (still can’t get my head round it!) – I just played around with the ‘bloom’ function on photoscape and it turned out like this!

    It looks fantastic, I love the textures. I dont have photoscape, do you know what the photoshop equivilant might be? I am going to an asylum tommorrow to take photos and have founds yours to be very inspiring :)

    Thanks Jocelyn, I’m glad you like them! I’m not very familiar with photoshop so can’t really help with that. Photoscape is free though and a good package in my opinion – very easy to use! don’t forget a tripod as they can be quite dark in there!!
