Theme: Shooting at f/1.4

In all my wanderings at Northern State Hospital, I have never noticed these devices found in this one particular (feeding?) room which you can somewhat see in this image.  I say a feeding room as in my short research on this item, all that came up was that this was a device used for “automated” pig feeding somehow. My Friend Eric and I were in this room chatting about how small the stalls seemed for cows, however, they certainly seem about the right size for pigs!

The texture layers are very subtle in this image, added one for a few scratches which can really only been seen on the left side of the image, the second texture helped bring out those scratches. The rest of the textures came from the image itself. I decided to go with a square crop as you can see in the original below, there was just a little too much dead space.

So yea, here’s the original image basically straight from the camera (I had to reduce the size and then did a little sharpening). 😀

  1. Very well done, David! I like the square crop, it allows the viewer to focus more on the subject than an the dead space.
    I like the B&W conversion too, and I think it could work both ways since your original image has that rustic effect 🙂
