Abandoned Garden HDR


This was either the second or third abandoned house Matt and I found that had some daffodils growing around it when we visited the Palouse! I found it neat that after at least 15 to 20 years, remnants of the previous owners daily life was still growing in what probably was some garden in the past.


I have a couple of shots from inside this house too. This one was not too spooky inside, compared to the one we found the previous day! I thought about processing this one as a B&W, but as you can see, the color version won out here.


This is three exposures (-2,0,+2) merged and tonemapped in Photomatix. I cropped in Photoshop, as well as removed a pole and piece of lint from the sensor. Ran through Topaz Adjust to pick up details and then pulled back the color and added vignette in Lightroom.


I will probably return to the Oregon coast in my next post, as I am missing the ocean! Thank you for your views, comments and faves. I appreciate them. I still am working on getting caught up on my friends photo streams, so thank you for your patience!


Please do not use my images on blogs or websites without my permission. Thank you.
