Thanks man. I used a wide angle lens at 10mm on a tri-pod practically on the ground. It's a three shot panorama so I started with a low angle for the ground then swept up to the middle of the building then the third is the top and sky. It gives the shot a crazy warped and stretched out perspective.
I'm in absolute lovings with this! The dreamy dark feel is amazing, it's like the perfect setting for a sort of haunted eerie scene in September or October... I'm trying to write a horror novel right now, so this is perfect mood-setting-ready-to-write-crazy-stuff inspiration. Thank you so much!
Ooh, I feel like an total ig'nant person for asking, but what's HDR?
Thanks a lot for this comment. I really appreciate comments that give me in site into why people like my work, and what influence it has on them. HDR (high dynamic range) is a photographic technique that has been around in theory for a long time but was extremely difficult to create effectively in a darkroom. The idea is you shoot many exposure of the same image, they range from extremely dark (where the details in the highlights are revealed) to very overexposed (in these the details in the shadows become exposed). You then take all the exposures and blend them together so you can have details in the shadows and highlight without overexposed areas or underexposed areas.
In my opinion the best thing about this picture is the name you gave it. It's just perfect for the picture! The picture looks weird and surreal, but that's just perfect considering the name. I could imagine seeing a dream from some small animal's point of view and coming across this weird structure.
Usually I don't like very psychedelic(or otherwise strong effect) HDRs, but this time it works well.
Thanks a lot I understand your not being a big fan HDR it's not for everyone, and I completely agree when I was done my post processing and went to upload it I felt that for this shot finding a name that worked really well was necessary to bring it together.
