While on my recent wildflower hunt through the Texas hill country, my partner in crime and tour guide mentioned that he had seen an old abandoned house outside of town a little ways that sat alone in a field, and there was a good chance the field was full of bluebonnets. Well, it didn't take me but about 1 second to decide this was a place I needed to see. Anyone who frequently shoots in HDR is well aware how cool rusted stuff looks in HDR, and though I couldn't get too close due to a barbed-wire fence (this is Texas, after all) I still like the look of the place (and the shot). Decayed old stuff is interesting in the first place, at least to me, and when you come across a scene where there is a contrast between the death of this structure and the growth of new spring flowers, I find it irresistible. Hope you like it!
5 exposure HDR taken at f/22, with exposures ranging from +1 to -3. Merged in Photomatix and some minor Contrast tweaks in PSE and a little color fix in Aperture.
