A silo lit by a red light


Sunshine Coast, Qld
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is an abandoned factory on the Sunshine Coast. Went there with urbex pals Al, Mick, David and Cameron.

This is the silo and assorted supporting parts. Lit by my lightsaber buried under a pile of rubbish. The red LED died (or maybe just disconnected) part way through this.

A challenge in this shot was the high temperature (even at midnight) causing higher than normal sensor noise.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15mm
Exposure: 120" @ f/3.5, ISO 400 (0/1)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Shadows +60, clarity +40
  2. Noise reduction: Luminance +35, colour +100
