Car Park Companion


Posted on Wed 7th Dec, 2005, 9:24pm

ISO: 400, Shutter speed: 1/25, Aperture: f/2.8,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 18mm,
Captured: 3rd December 2005, 4:03pm,

Nothing like a nice bit of urban decay to brighten up the mood, eh? This was shot on the same day I had my epic railway/brambles adventure and I knew I liked it straight away but when you've got a story like that you have to find a picture to suit so I kept this one back.

It's the car park near Fairfield Halls in Croydon. The paved area which extends to the right of this photo is a prime spot for local skaters, which is what I went looking for but none of them were about so I wandered to the end and this caught my eye.

The light was fairly low so it was a case of firing off quite a few shots, staying as steady as possible and hoping for the best. I tried some landscape ones and did get one I liked, which I may put up another time. However this frame was easily the best.

The sky is natural to this frame but I had to double expose the RAW file and then put the two together in photoshop to bring it out properly. The join, as you can see, is pretty bad. I thought about not mentioning it and hoping no-one noticed but that would be rather naive of me. Anyway I don't think it ruins the shot too badly. And if it does, tough cos I aint got time to change it :)

Now this I really like - from the strong lead-in from the balcony support to the great contrast in colour. Good sky too (always important ;-)) Good work!
