Three image HDR capture of an old fire hydrant and discarded shopping cart. I was out exploring a little this past weekend and came across this scene in a partially abandoned shopping mall. The other half of this building is a K-Mart but this half is an old movie theater long since boarded up. There were a few old shopping carts here so I made good use of the subjects and my time. The building itself was painted this awful color that I can’t even describe…I suppose if they had not done that the images would have a different feel.
I processed in Lightroom three, Photomatix Pro and Focal Point two. I gave the image a slight vignette because I wanted the fire hydrant to be the main focus here. I thought it was amusing that this old hydrant was covered with rain drops and surrounded by melting snow at the same time!
