i went out on the only day i had to shoot for this challenge, unfortionatly it was a wet and rainy day. i went to this spot because, well one i love to shoot decay and trains and such things but also because i have had some luck there before.
anyway for this photo i used a trypod and took six different exposures and combinded then together in photomatrix and applyed tone mapping to the image.
i then opened the photo in cs4 for some more work,
levels (a few times)
hue/sat (desat/a few times)
highbypass filter
noise ninja
resize/ save
i really love how this turned out and hope many others feek the same happy holidays!

Great wide angle and anxious to see where this was shot. HDR? Looks really neat.

This looks like a Jeb shot. X marks the spot. Nice job.

There have been a handful of images I've pegged as being NikonJeb's, but now that I've found a train, I'm pretty sure I've found him too : ) If not, good mimicry! Great detail and leading lines.

Not much left to steal! Nicely decrepit and the trees outside give it a more rural feel.
