There is no denying the fact, I am running out of my stock of images. I will either need to go back up to the Mallee for more, or I am going to have to start going into the city more for images. I do still have plenty of images, but not really ones I want to work on for here. I did manage to find another one from the Mallee and have processed it for today.
Remember the shop in Woomelang? I told you about the house that was next door to it, the clothesline and swing, well this is the back door to the house. The building on the left is the bathroom, and where those bricks are, you walk in there to enter the house. It is very dark and dank, I wouldn’t have liked to have lived here, I like my home to be full of light.
I had to redo certain parts of this a few times, the blurring that I normally do just wasn’t working and I had to keep redoing it. I got there in the end. I also wanted to try and draw some more light to the doorway. In the original the area around the door is the darkest area in the image. I probably did too much vignetting, but I do actually like it. I like the way your eye, or my eye, goes to the back entrance.
It isn’t a very attractive entrance way. I have seen worse, but not much.
- Photomatix Pro – 3 image HDR
- Image processed with camera raw
- Details drawn out
- three different layers of blurring of masking were applied.
- The image was darkened with curves, then using the lasso tool an area around the entrance was selected and lightened.
- The image was opened in Topaz Adjust and vignetting applied.
I have also added some new images to my website in a gallery called Abandoned, the images are all for sale, though I wanted to also say that while the images do have watermarks on them on the website, the images that are purchased do not.
Here are a couple of the images you will find there.
I hope you will go and take a look at them.
