Pump Hall

Philadelphia Richmond Power Station, Urbex, HDR, Photography, Scott Frederick

Nikon D5000, Nikkor 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5, 10mm, f/11, ISO 400

While exploring the main hall of this location, I noticed this scene and just had to fire off some brackets. I was really drawn to the light and the vanishing point but these pump like rods added some interesting detail. I couldn’t decide if the Coca-Cola can should of been moved out of the way, but considering I was standing on asbestos and lead paint I decided not to kick it!:)

Chris Frailey - The vanishing lines formed by the hallway and the paint on the walls work great together for this image. Nice one Scott.

William Pratt - I am curious what this looks like without HDR. Are any of the original brackets good enough to share as a contrast?
