Axle Rust

Some urban exploring around the industrial areas and train yards in West Seattle. I'm amazed these train cars can even move with such ridiculous levels of rust. :)


HDR is relatively rare for me these days, but it's usually the only way to compensate for extreme contrast situations like this. This is 3 raw exposures merged and tonemapped with some final post processing to restore lost contrast.
