Dialed In

This is a detail shot from the large abandoned warehouse I found in Niland, California. I really would have liked to get a shot looking straight at the dial, but it was too high on the wall for it to be feasible. Sometimes you just have to work with what you’re given 🙂

Excellent processing Heath! Love the dirt and details!

I like the perspective. A straight-on shot may have midsed the cool detail we see along the bottom of the box. Nicely seen and shot!

Great details, love the sharpness of the dial and the look of the object with the spider webs and other crusty stuff.

Love the sharpness of the knob and all of the great textural detail, color tones also are awesome.

excellent close up – great focal point and superb toning.

Love the photo Heath – just the right amount of structure, tonal range, and mystery. I think the angle of this shot is much more interesting than a ‘straight-on’ shot would have been.

Very cool detail shot, Heath!

That does look pretty high – I hate it when there is something that you can’t quite get the desired angle on; great processing none the less.

Great details and nice selective sharpness. And like always: I love your toning!

Really like the shadows, nice shot.

Really awesome processing! With HDR and such, I usually forget about getting in close to things. Thanks for the reminder here.
