Great photo. And I agree with your comment completely. Perhaps someone will come along to rescue it. What city is it in?

Doesn't it seem appalling that this is an abandoned building? Is it in Chernobyl?

Absolutely stunning, so beautiful! Where in Antwerp is this? It seems that I will have to pay Antwerp a visit again.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in an abandoned building in Antwerp Belgium.
Time
In order to get the best light, this shot was taken early morning.
Lighting
This is an HDR image to get more dynamic range.
Equipment
Canon 7D with a Tokina 11-16mm on a manfrotto tripod.
Inspiration
Unfortunately this building is not being used anymore and therefor the state of building is going down. I wanted to capture the beauty before it would be to far gone.
Editing
Simple HDR processing and minor lighting adjustments.
In my camera bag
My main focus now is more on portrait and wedding photography, this requires more then needed to take this shot. When I took this shot I had a Canon 7D, the Tokina 11-16 and a Canon 24-70 with me.
Feedback
Go out there and visit these awesome places, create your own opportunities!
