    This is fabulous Dick, the HDR really works so well for this sort of image. What a fantastic location :-)

  • Yes in these old buildings there are no lights, and flash would kill it. This one has chicken wire across the front to protect the things inside, so we shoot through a hole. The variable would be the sun beams and what they hit. Thanks a bunch Matt.

    Gosh Dick, this reminds me of my own kitchen, although the stove in your shot looks more modern ::))))

  • Yes it’s a bit like the blacksmith shop with the bellows. Thanks Sandra.

    wow, terrific work there rj! love that old brickwork and decaying walls, showing the layers and textures…beautiful colouring :)

  • Thank you Karin. It is a very interesting place. A feeling of contradictions, Hate to see it continue to decay, but the decay holds a certain fascination too. A fairly dark space so the lighting really changes with the moving sun. Makes it a treat to see over and over…
