Post-modern burial by ftpaddict Post-modern burial by ftpaddict
The landscape of an industrial wilderness. One can only guess what machinery this long-abandoned place used to house.

High voltage lines, pneumatic and hydraulic pressure pipes, and enough oil to kill half the seals in Alaska.

Comment/critique highly appreciated.

Thank you, =DianaCretu, for the location.

Thank you kindly. It wasn't incredibly easy, since the depth of field was so paper-thin. :giggle:

This is an exceptional shot that you've taken. I can feel a strong feeling of desolation and abandonment emanating from the image itself. You have a great talent in photography. If I were you I wouldn't be afraid to take it to new heights. Excellent work.

What new heights would those be, if I may inquire.

Wow, you have beautifully captured this old place - I wish I could have seen it! There are a couple of places like this here in Johannesburg too, but I would not dare go in there even if I had a full police escort, would get robbed and killed for sure.

I really like this image. Since you say this is an HDR image, I wonder if you shouldn't have captured a but more detail in the shadow areas? (what you captured here looks more like it all fit into the dynamic range of a single image). But I love the atmosphere.

And when I went there, the only other person was a girl.
Ah, you see, I do not use HDR to enhance detail in shadow areas. There was plenty more, to be sure, but I like this effect I can achieve with HDR. :) It would have looked really ordinary with just a boost in shadow detail.

The first two tables in the foreground look like they aren't part of the picture if you only look at the background. I'd love to visit that place. Guess you were lucky to catch a good to shoot that :giggle: :heart:
