The roof in this building on the property of an abandoned hospital in New Jersey in beyond disrepair. With all the rain I’m seeing outside today, I can only wonder what this place looks like after a monsoon! The day we visited, we had dry conditions and I really love the way the light was fusing in! I decided to frame this off center. I find too ofter when photographers shoot a hallway they always compose head on. Something I try to avoid if possible. As always, vanishing points are a great addition to any composition. The way the light and dark areas of this scene play off each other, really bring the whole image together for me! Even though I process a lot of my work as HDR, I don’t like a lot of details in all the areas. Shadows bring mystery to an image and if you take them away, your left with tonal mediocracy.
