Continuing my series of images taken along Grand Avenue in Phoenix, Arizona:

After the nice pastoral scenes of my last couple of posts, I felt like getting back to some grunge tonight.  It’s been a tough week!

This shot was one of the last ones I took when we did our photowalk on Grand Avenue a couple of weeks ago.  I shot three bracketed photos through an opening in the chainlink fence to capture this hidden corner between two seemingly-abandoned buildings.  The sun was just behind the building on the left, so it posed some exposure challenges.  I purposely left a little grain in the image because I think it fits the mood:

HDR created from three hand-held bracketed photos (-2.0/0.0/+2.0) processed in Photomatix v4. Post-processing in Topaz Adjust / DeNoise with Paintshop Photo Pro X3.

So many more images from that day that I would love to share….
