Photo #5 - Monday 5th December 2011
Model: Canon EOS 550D
Exposure: 1/50 sec
Focal Length: 30mm
PP- Clicked the 'I Feel Lucky' button in Picasa, added a bit of saturation and messed with the Shadows and Highlights sliders to add contrast too.
Decemberfest work days are going to be tough but thats good because its making me think and visit the locations I've been meaning to visit.
This photo was taken in 'Ghost Town' near Jazirat Al Hamra (Red Island), Ras Al Khaimah. It is literally a ghost town that was deserted years ago over some sort of land rights issue. The original inhabitants all moved to Abu Dhabi apparently.
I was a bit rushed on the way home, just grabbing the last of the light. The old, derelict buildings have lots of interesting features and textures to explore in images and could be a good DECEMBERFEST hunting ground.
Thanks for the comments guys. Any C&C is encouraged please particularly from a composition perspective as this is where I feel I have the most ground to make up.
