Again Andrew and I went to the Californian Hotel that went abandon not to long ago. This was such a good place to photograph. We certainly had a good time :)

This is another HDR photograph (-2/+2) that I put together in PhotoMatix and edited levels in photoshop.

Canon EOS 400d – 18-55mm

  • Yeah the glass looks mad ey =) thanks man!

  • Haha, no I didn’t break this, but after the photo was taken a chair did go through this to take out the rest of the glass by my mate. Thanks for the comment!!
