    Decominshioned power station near my house. Security is very good, so I haven't been able to sneak inside to take photos. But the security lighting does make it look pretty cool at night.






    I used the A6000 with the Minolta MD 35-70mm and MD 70-210mm.

    Very cool what you were able to capture from such a distance. I like #4 especially.

    Maybe, if you show them these, they'll let you inside. :D

    B&W sure punched up the images! Starkness to the skeleton, and period piece glow to the building.

    Thanks, I pushed the files to their limits to get that look. Most of the images are actually HDR from 3 bracketed shots

    Yup, fascinating comparison.

    Were they in the mist of a remodel?

    Love the last two, Jai. Hmmm... :coffee-26: ...liking the effect you are getting with those B&W HDR shots!

    Thanks! I thought the HDR would be necessary to try and drag back some detail around the bright spotlights on the building, and keep some texture in the sky. In the end my non HDR shots (like the second one) managed to do almost as well with the dynamic range
