High Key Vacancy

Posted by
Jason Politte (Conway, AR, United States) on 16 September 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I exposed this shot one stop over for a high key effect on this vacant house and overgrown lot.

Interested in purchasing prints of my photographs?

My wife Karen also has a photoblog at Open Door.

Terrific result, Jason. Marvelous technique to create a harsh atmosphere for this vacant lot.

Oooh how bold you are. I am thinking that the intense bright sunlight is devouring the abandoned structure, which, isn't far off the mark.

The long grasses lend a beautiful blinding light to the whole scene.
Gorgeous, Jason.

Wonderful processing on this one, Jason! What a lovely home - just needs a bit of love to make this once again a happy place. So sad so many beautiful homes are being abandoned and so many people homeless. Such a waste!

Very bold processing with a very dramatic outcome. Great way to focus attention to the house.

Interesting and eye-catching processing achieved here. Your composition makes this lot look landscaped with various tall grasses, rather than an "overgrown lot." Great textures as well.
