I was not sure what I was going to process for today’s post, until I happened across the brackets I had shot at the old German Kaserne Döberitz.  While I usually do not care for graffiti artists “spoiling” the natural decay of abandoned and forgotten sites, I did find several remarkable pieces of graffiti at Kaserne Döberitz, this set of angel’s wings being one of my favorite examples.  I could just imagine some angelic guardian standing behind the pillar barring entrance to the light beyond!  To help me to process this particular piece, I listened to Heligoland, the latest album from Massive Attack. Frankly, anything by Massive Attack is great for processing Urbex HDRs!

Viveca Koh The artist certainly positioned those wings very well indeed – great capture, and I love your PP which has an almost two-dimensional quality here which seems very fitting.

Heath OFee I really like the simplicity and symmetry of this shot, Jacques. Very well captured and extremely well processed…love it!

BTW I’m loving the audio commentary you’re giving as well…I like to hear what other people are listening to while processing.

Jacques Hey Viveca, Heath and Mike! Always great to see you guys here and super pleased you’re digging my work! This was a pretty cool place to shoot, and I have a couple of other things I’d like to photograph there soon, some of which I am sure I’ll post here.

Best;
Jacques
