    Abandoned Motel

    This abandoned motel is in Preble County, Ohio, at the intersection of Rt 40 and Rt 127. I think this was the motel office at one time.

    A bit 'overcooked' on the tonemapping for my personal tastes, Don. But as an example of the genre, it is very good. You've certainly got the mood and atmosphere of the place into it.

    Good sense of depth, and I like the detail in it. Nice exposure.

    Beautiful location, full of potential.
    But the first impression I have is HDR, not of the location.

    True, but when I look at Picasso's Guernica (a Spanish town) I also think of the style and not the location... http://www.whataboutclients.com/arch...o_guernic.html

    Hi Don! There is a lot of potential in this composition. The trick is to get it looking as close to what you actually saw as you can, and that can take a fair amount of effort playing with the post processing to develop the experience.

    In an image like this I try to bring out the detail of each part of the image without letting the contrast get too extreme. You've done a really good job managing the exposure and saturation, which isn't always easy. I love the character and textures in this image, particularly the detail in areas like the broken window pane!
