After yesterdays post, I thought, what can I possibly put up today.  I was amazed at the response to the post, but in a really good way.  It was wonderful to find so many kindred spirits out there.  So, after thinking about it, I felt I had no choice, but to revisit another place.

Please Use a Different Entrance, This One is BlockedIt seemed only appropriate to go back to the photos I took of Larundel Mental Asylum and do some more images from it.  So here are another two.

The above image is what used to be the main building, I believe.  It looks like the one you would first drive up to.  I also think it may have been the building my friend was in when she was a patient there.  It looks like there has been a fire inside.

The image is a HDR image processed in Photomatix Pro.  The new one is similar to the older version, though I quite like the layout a little more in the new version.  The image was then processed in Camera Raw and I added only one blur layer really and played with the light.  The sky is pretty amazing, I didn’t do anything to that, well other than the gradient.  I enjoy playing with the light.

Seeing Through the RoofThis is in the same space as the other image I showed you a few weeks ago.  I think this one shows the state of the inside with some suggestion for what the place would have been like.  The windows are wonderful, I love windows like that.

When processing this image, I wanted to draw out the decay that is happening.  I couldn’t do anything about the graffiti, so I tried to blur it out more so it wouldn’t stand out so much.  Again, this image is also a HDR processed with Photomatix Pro.

I was going to try the images in Silver Efex and Color Efex, but time has got away from me today.  I ended up going to see an exhibition in Ivanhoe that is part of a new art gallery space in my local council, Banyule.  So I am running behind today.


I have a couple of articles you might be interested in.  They both affect us as photographers and artists.  I don’t know how they are going to affect us, but we should know about these.
