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 front building, and the only area with any noticeable graffiti. Tried to shoot this first up to catch some lightning to the left. However the rain was also hitting straight on the lens, which wasn't optimal. Came back once the rain had stopped.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15mm
Exposure: 241" @ f/3.5, ISO 400 (0/1)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. Auto level (horizontal) perspective correction
  2. Presence: Highlights -100, shadows +70, white clipping -100, black clipping -10, clarity +45
  3. Graduated filter - top left to middle (to adjust the sky): Highlights -100, shadows +100, clarity +100

      This was at Nambour. I didn’t drive and wasn’t using GPS back then, so I don’t have any more detail.
