Challenge: Topless...With No People (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon EOS-20D
Lens: Tokina AF 12-24mm f/4.0 AT-X Pro DX
Location: Stonington, CT
Date: Nov 13, 2007
Aperture: f4
ISO: 200
Shutter: 127 sec
Galleries: Architecture, Rural
Date Uploaded: Nov 13, 2007

came up with this idea on saturday, but didn't get a chance to shoot until tuesday night. this abandoned building was the subject of two other entries I've had in the past. set up the camera on a tripod, opened the shutter in bulb, popped the front of the building with a flash and blue gel, then used another flash with orange gel for the interior. closed shutter. this was the last of 9 exposures, and I knew this was the one when I looked at the lcd.

PP - absolute minimal. Opened raw in ACR, adjusting white balance and blacks. slight crop. USM at 20, 50, 0. resize, slight bump in mid-tones on curves. save for web.

I think I'd like this better if the grass and bush weren't so blue. Very nice composition and interesting subject.

Really cool image - love the colors and the perspective - the sky of gold to contrast the blue building really works well here. One of the best of the challenge.

I love extended exposures, but I'm not sold on the aqua hue against the orange glow.

Looking forward to finding out how you manipulated the colour. I like the angle of the shot and it seems like sparks are flying around. Great.

nice pic but the hue change is a bit off-putting.

I enjoy this image, the oranges and blues work rather nicely together and the fact I can see through the windows/door that it is indeed topless is a great bonus. Very nicely done.

The atmospheric orange is not heaven-like but the bluish stone is!

I don't immediately think topless.
