Revisiting Big M

I’ve been revisiting some of the pictures I took at Big M auto salvage yard on a night-photography workshop last year.  Some of the images that didn’t work so well in color do much better converted to black & white, and with a little tone mapping from Nik’s HDR Efex Pro to evoke the sense of grunge one actually feels walking around this place.

    This are GREAT Tim. It’s fun to revisit older sets of images and apply new things we’ve learned and create an entirely new set of images to be excited about. Color is fun, but black and white is better. Rick

    Thanks, Rick. These also took a quick pass through Silver Efex Pro for the addition of black borders (I love how you can randomize the roughness so each border is unique).

    Love this series. You did a great job of capturing the feel of “junkyard grunge”!
