General location: Australia, South-East Queensland
The Setup:Spent an afternoon and evening at the abandoned TAFE. This looks to be a microfiche viewer or maybe a CCTV monitor, and someone's toolset laid out ready to work (and covered in dust). We wore masks in this room, on account of the strong smell.

Exposure: 60" @ f/8, ISO 1600

- ACR lens correction profile for EF-S 15-85mm

The wash-up:I just don't get HDR. Going to keep trying though.
