Abandoned, Grunge HDR

Since you got into HDR photography, do you tend to seek out more abandoned, creepy places like this?

Daily Photo – The Abandoned Boiler Room from the Queen Mary

Here’s the next photo from the amazing ghost ship! Well, I don’t know if that is what it is really called or not, but we did walk into this room during our little ghost tour aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach. It was very creepy, alright… mostly alone in this huge old ship from the war… and these vast interiors felt very hollow and eerie in their emptiness. I enjoyed taking the photos… and then I enjoyed getting out of there!

The following bit is from Wikipedia: “Anecdotal reports of paranormal activity have included children crying in the nursery room, used as the third-class playroom, and a mysterious splashing noise in the drained first-class swimming pool.”

    Cool shot Trey – sounds kinda creepy – I always thought I’d want to check it out but probably from all the books I’ve read!

  • This is kind of creepy. You’d expect them to keep the whole ship spick and span… Great shot!

    I guess they let it fall apart just a little…

  • Yikes, I be out of there in a hurry too!!! Looks really scary!!

  • Been there, done that. The entire ship is a great subject to practice on with HDR. I would like to go back there again some day now that I am a little better at it.

    I don’t know if there are ghosts there, but I will definitely go anywhere that’s such a good subject for photography :). I like the colors of the metal and how lights fall on it from the outside and the flashlight.
