Machinery As You Have Never Seen It

Share: 

If you're ever lucky enough to be invited onto an old junk-yard or anywhere where there is a heap of old and rusty machinery, you will know that there are a lot of opportunities for amazing photography. These photographs of machinery show what is possible with a great subject and a little immagination.

About Author

Rob is the founder of Light Stalking. His love for photography pushed him into building this fantastic place, and you can get to know him better here.

Quite a few of those photos look to have been done with HDR. Some “gently” some not so gently. This time, even the garish ones look good — painterly.

Thanks for bringing back memories and the great photography. Some of HDR was a little past my taste but interesting, maybe I’ll developed new taste buds who knows.
