What Lies Within - Turn The Handle - Gladesville Asylum (Hospital) - The HDR Series by 


This ornate handle caught my eye at the old Gladesville Hospital site, the hospital dates back to the 1870’s. I am not sure how old this this door handle is but i loved its style..

Gladeville Hospital was a recent meetup of the RB Sydney Group.

The shot is the result of 3 bracketted exposures, taken with a Nikon D300 and Nikon 18-200mm lens. The exposures were then processed using photomatix hdr software

    Now this is a great shot. Captures all the color from the aging of the door handel, the grain of the wood, and the oxidation of the lock itself. I really like the lighting with the sun hitting the bottom half of the image, which gives a nice accent to the photo.
    Job well done.
