Yellow pipes coming out of an apartment building.


Fortitude Valley, Brisbane
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

On an evening walk in the Valley. Some apartments in this building caught fire a few weeks ago and were gutted. Extensive works under-way to patch things up. To me, this photo looks like worms have broken out of the ground to eat the building and/or occupants.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 650D
Lens: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 EX-DC @ 30mm
Exposure: 1/40" @ f/1.8, ISO 5000 (0/1)

Post processing:

Lightroom 5 -

  1. White balance - 300 lower than Tungsten (2.5k)
  2. Noise reduction: Luminance +30, detail +100
