Turbine Room

Delaware Power Station, Philadelphia Electric Company, Urbex, HDR, Photography, Scott Frederick

Nikon D5000, Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, 10mm, f/16, ISO 200, 9 Exposures

Yesterday’s mission was a stealth one. We accessed this abandoned power plant this around 7:30am and we had an amazing shoot. This is the Turbine Room.  Unfortunately a lot of this location has been scrapped and the dripping and leaking roof made for some interesting puddles and stalagmites. While inside we didn’t run into anyone else.  After 3 hours of exploring, we made our way back to the entrance.

I was looking for a unique perspective on this room and found one when approaching these pipes. I wanted to break away from a centered framing and utilize an off-centered composition which is supported nicely by the curvature of the pipes.  The chair helps tell a story while the room still feels big and open.  Lately I’ve been utilizing both the onOne Perfect Photo Suite along with the Nik Software Bundle.  I find that utilizing both packages as a main source of creativity helps me get to where I want to be visually.  I was recently informed that onOne  Software has REDUCED the price on all of there plugins.

Toad Hollow Photography - As always, your work just makes my jaw hit the floor here Scott! Amazing work, my friend, I love your style of processing. The tones and details here are fabulous and help to accentuate the extremely dramatic sense you get while viewing. It just doesn’t get any better than this, Scott, top drawer my friend!

A.Barlow - Awesome shot, and of course there was a chair in it :) Really nice placement of the rusted pipes in the frame. They look like they could have easily been left out but I think they make it all fit together nicely. Good job.

Erik Kerstenbeck - Hi

Really fine composition here. The pipes draw the eye into the frame and the lights at the end of the room suck you right into the expansive room. The chair provides nice foreground detail for scale!
