Erm, did I write something wrong? It was taken on a tripod.

Wrong? No. I just wondered why you did not tackle this scene with HDR, which seems to be your usual approach for this type of subject matter.

That is true, I used to do a lot of HDR for urbex, but at some point I realised that I often liked the single shots better than the HDRs, so this time I didn't do any.

I think it works better not in HDR, sometimes it's what you don't see that make a picture rather than what you do

Ah, I should add that the processing dramatised the shot quite a bit. I wanted more dramatic lighting, high-key light in the background, more intensity in the front room. The plain shot is more... plain.

Beautiful, Carsten. It feels like you have taken us back in time to the 1950s with that one.


A few from CY 2/100 at a rodeo. First time to a rodeo. First time shooting action with MF in such poor lighting. A few turned out okay.

Manu -- Breathtaking view. Where is that exactly?
Toothwalker -- Nice shot of the salt bed.
Carsten -- Love your bw shot. To me, the slower shutter speed makes the shot - i.e. birds in motion.
Grenache -- You know I'm partial to CY 100/2 right? #1 is my favorite.
ebookman -- You seem to make any zoom shine including the Minolta 35-70 macro. Good stuff...
