USA - 2012 - Peering into Bodie

All of these images were taken in a period of about two hours - the fastest I've ever worked! Almost all were taken peering through the often dirty glass of the windows of the buildings. There are a couple of exceptions where entry to the building was permitted. The lighting in many of the rooms is unusual - particularly where there is no direct sunlight shining into the room. The warm light in the upper part of the rooms is from the bright sunlight reflected upwards through the windows from the warm coloured sandy earth. The cool light in the lower part of the rooms is from the cool light shining downwards from the clear blue sky. I hand blended bracketed exposures in PhotoShop to accommodate the very high subject brightness range in some of the images. There is no HDR or Exposure Fusion processing.
