Water Tower and Distilling Plant

Water Tower #1

This is the last set of brackets I was able to shoot when I was on the abandoned distillery this week. Right after these shots were taken the caretaker arrived and asked me to leave.

I shot four exposures of this scene and then merged them in NIK HDR Efex Pro 2. I’ve discovered that using the anti-ghosting at 100% is not necessary and can even cause serious halo issues with bright area such as the sky. I dialed it down to 20% and the results are much better. I really don’t have a lot more to say about this image.

  1. As I am from Milwaukee, I was wondering if you have been here for any of the Harley Events? Always a great time to shoot Harleys.

    1. I came up for the 100th Anniversary in 2003. I love Harley-Davidsons but I don’t have the desire to attend big events like that anymore. It’s hard for me to come up with a fresh take on the subject or the people.
