Purgatory...

I'm losing myself,
Trying to make people happy,
Who can never truly be pleased,
I'm spreading my wings,
Only for the feathers to be plucked away,
You leave me bare,
Not even dignity to protect me -,
Yet I know there are no gates of heaven waiting for me,
I'm no pure angel,
But please "salvate" me,
So I'm losing a battle over and over,
I'm damned to purgatory,
(Poem written by Wild Girl)

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken in Sta. rosa, New Mexico, USA.
Time
It was taken at 10:12 AM winter time with overcast day.
Lighting
It was overcast day, and February 15, 2014 where there was terrible winter in the North side of the USA.
Equipment
Canon EOS-1D X, TS-E17mm f/4L, Canon Trigger release, Manfratto Tripod
Inspiration
The story that the shattered house have shown. That once upon a time people were there and all of the sudden they decided to moved on due to some reasons. That they were there as community who had been sharing the existence the economic growth and suddenly it was collapse and people tried to leave and move to a place where they can survive. Those are the reasons that inspire me a lot.
Editing
I did take bracketed shots and do HDR on this. I adjusted the saturation and submitted the photo for competition.
In my camera bag
I have 3 canon camera and in it are the canon lenses, depending on what i will be shooting so from time to time I change the lenses before deciding a road trip.
Feedback
HDR is really effective in getting the details of your subject so why not try using it. I just took 3 images, one i exposed to the light, then have my mid tone, and I shot one exposure for the shadow. I combined it in photoshop and have NIK HRD Pro 2 for the processing of the HDR. Be open always for the changes, don't be purist because time is changing and if you can use any of the softwares, so use it for your advantage. Have fun and be happy always. When you are happy then it will reflect to your work.
