Creepy, Crusty, Crumbling: Illegal Tour of Abandoned Six Flags New Orleans ... Hurricane Katrina killed this clown. According to the photographer, “An abandoned Six Flags amusement park, someone spray painted ‘Six Flags 2012 coming soon’ on the wall above the downed head. But they were clownin.’ Six Flags will never rebuild here.” Project: HDR and Tone Mapping Above: Nikon D5100 with 18-55mm lens. This image was created by converting the file into three separate exposure values before exporting to Photomatix HDR software, for exposure fusion and tone mapping. Further processing was done using Photoshop. I've saved a selection of the best High Dynamic Range (HDR) 'tone mapping' images at my Flickr favorites. They're about the best examples, with respects to processing skill, photographic subject and composition, that I've personally found in the genre.

Divination Divination is the art or practice of foretelling the future using different methods that the diviner may decide.

Urban Decay & Urban Exploration - Bangkok Having spent the past five years in Asia my photographic subjects have been wide and varied. From abandoned buildings, market places, urban upheaval in China, to the rural landscapes of the Pearl River Delta. Now living in Thailand, I have begun to embrace a totally new style of photography: My most recent project looks at Urban Decay in Thailand, and specifically Pattaya and Bangkok. When we picture Thailand, it is rare, on any account, we conjure up images of Urban Decay. Nevertheless, the sprawling suburbs of Bangkok are riddled with such areas of interest.
