The Story

After nearly two weeks of posting pictures from Cambodia, I thought it’d be nice to return back to some stomping grounds of grunge. I remember taking this image back in 2010 (from Wilkes-Barre, PA) because I was trying to get in and out of the area as quickly as possible. There were routine patrols going on and cameras were everywhere. Because effective use of time was critical, I made sure to have the fisheye lens on, camera docked on my tripod and settings locked in. All I had to do was drive up, verify focus and camera settings and get the brackets. I really only had one shot at this and am glad that it worked out! I love how the fisheye distorts the stacks.

In terms of processing

Unfortunately, I don’t remember what I did to process this image. I know it predates Perfect Effects so it was likely edited in PhotoTools 2.6, onOne Software.

    Ok Brian this one really rocks. This i guarantee will be the inspiration for some set designer for the the next Promethius movie. Something is in there…and it's coming out!

    As the name of this building in Cambodia, the shape that gives the camera lens seems gloomy structure, as in science fiction films related to other planets. Very good that image.
