If Halls Could Talk…

Theaterwiz Eastern State Penitentiary

Hi Everyone! Happy Friday….TGIF !

I must say, if you love HDR, Urbex, and endless compositions, this is a place you have to visit. Ask Scott Frederick, Jim Nix or any number of bracketing buds, this place rocks!

ESP, better known as Eastern State Penitentiary is located  smack dab in the middle of a metropolis in Philadelphia PA, the shots and Dynamic range is this place is endless….bring spare memory cards. This was a multiple exposure HDR captured with the 7D and Promote Control.

Have a Great Weekend!

    Fantastic textures and an excellent vanishing point. This place is definitely on my HDR bucket list.

    Eastern State is such a great place to take photos, especially HDRs. I’ve had the honor myself.

    Awesome shot Mike. I have tons of images from there and it is truly a location not to be missed.

    I am reading a novel about a guy who was in ESP. The author paints a pretty bleak picture of the place but nothing compares to some of the great HDR images I have seen of this place, including this one. Nice job, Mike.

    Great perspective Mike. Most of the shors I’ve seen from here are in smaller spaces; it’s good o see a larger POV.

    Whoaw, this is awesome, Mike! Love that wicked vanishing point, and all the details from the years of natural decay are totally splendid my friend!
