Day 19 – Three Different Versions

Abandoned - 2

I did this the other day, on Day 17, but this time, I have tried to transform the images so they are all very different.  I have the original as it was taken.  The only thing changed is how dark or light it is.

This house isn’t new to my blog, I posted it back in June in a post called Away Again.  It was taken while I was riding on the back of the motorbike.  I would really like to go back and take some photos of it again, when the light is better, and when I have time to actually stop.  I love old houses like this.  There is something strange about how quickly a house begins to decay after the occupants leave.

I have done some colour burning with this one.  I love how dead grass gets some colour when you do this.  There is a lot of contrast.  Though I’m not sure this technique would work for everything.

Now in black and white.  I don’t know, I think I like the second image better.  I like the weird colours.  I do think both 2 and 3 are better than the first.  What would have made this image even better would have been a cloudy sky, and the sun shining on the house. Maybe I will get some images like that next time I go.

I am actually going to Shepparton tomorrow, but won’t be anywhere near this.  The state finals for BMX racing are on there tomorrow, and I am going up there to photograph them for Cycling Victoria.  Looking forward to doing that.  I quite enjoy photographing BMX.  If it finishes early enough I might even have time to go out to the old house for some more photos.  Maybe.
