I just got around to working on images yesterday. My mother passed away last Tuesday at the age of 88 after a very long illness and I did not have time or the heart to work on images. Yesterday afternoon I was inspired to work on them again.
Both of these images were photographed in Pennsylvania at an undisclosed location. I loved the way the light filtered through shattered glass into these abandoned buses. Both images I processed through Photomatix 5. I usually combine my images in Photoshop but for some reason these two images had me heading for a tonal map that held a realistic feel but brought out the light and shadows. I loved the peeling paint on the ceiling of the bus above as well as the vibrant seat colors. I worked both images in Photoshop dodging and burning as well as in Nik Color Efex Pro. Both were photographed with my Fuji X-Pro 1.
The image below I loved the lights hanging from the torn ceiling, the spider web catching the sun and the lone piece of triangular glass on the seat. It is the little details that I love finding when working around decay buildings and objects.
