Early Morning Light

One of the things that is fascinating about shooting urbex locations like Phoenix Trotting Park is watching how everything changes as the light starts pouring into the building. When the dark spaces become illuminated, new compositions emerge.

Oh wow, cool lighting there on this one. Like how it has very sharp reflections off those two points.

You are really good at HDR. Seeing your photo, I realize HDR isn’t as easy as it seems. Great job on the photo and I do love the light.

Loving this. Nice light and composition. The starbursts are a cool bonus, too.

A terrific angle to capture the depth of the natural degradation, and the light bursts are like an alien staring back at us. Tones and shadow play work so well. Really well captured.
