Veil of darkness removed

As I mentioned in yesterday’s teaser shot here on the blog, I spent an amazing day jetting from one great URBEX location to another.  I still remember arriving at this particular location, somewhere 😉 south of Magdeburg, Germany, with plenty of time to spare before the sunrise.  While the rest of the crew was already busy inside, I headed off to the south-west corner of the church yard to snag these brackets peering through the years of growth back toward the church and the rising sun.  This was the first of two abandoned churches we explored, though there were so many more in the southern part of former East Germany begging for a visit.  So many site, so little time!  (Creative notes:  I post processed this shot to Nox Arcana’s Veil of Darkness.  I shot these brackets with my Nikon D700 and Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8 lens.  Post processing done using Photomatix Pro, and several plug-in filters from Nik Software.)

Barbara Youngleson Beautifully framed shot, Jacques. Good to see that preservation is at hand, evidenced by the architectural nets. Love the golden hour light!

Brian Furbush Like it Jacques – the soft glow from the sunlight is what really makes this for me.

Brian Matiash Yet another home run. Excellent vantage point. Wonderful job including all of the foliage to really give the structure a ‘found’ feel.

A.Barlow Wow, that place looks like it’s being swallowed by an Ivy Monster. Any shots of the inside?

Bob Lussier I can’t add anything that hasn’t been said already. Its a deliciously foreboding image. Great perspective, and exceptional processing.

Scott Webb Love seeing the green growth – overgrowth maybe. I get a cinematic feel like the image is about to pan over to the left now.

What a cool place
