An overgrown courtyard with circular designs painted on the concrete and trees growing out of the cracks.


Seven Hills, Qld

The Setup:

Spent an afternoon and evening at the abandoned TAFE. Started out in this courtyard, complete with basketball hoop and reasonably big trees growing through the cracks.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 15/1mm
Exposure: 1/40" @ f/5/1, ISO 400

Post processing:

Lightroom 4 -

  1. Presence: Highlights +10, shadows -10, white +30, blacks -25, clarity +15
  2. ACR lens profile for Canon EF-S 15-85mm

The wash-up:

The circles on the floor are probably the most exciting bits in this photo. The rest didn't really work out.
