Posted on Jun.13, 2011, under black and white

(Nikon D700, 70-300mm at 122mm, ISO 200, Exposure 1/500 sec @ f/8.0)

On a recent Saturday I decided to take a short day trip into northern Ohio. I wanted to drive on some back roads to see if I could find anything interesting to shoot. For this trip I decided that my destination would be Defiance, Ohio. I thought Defiance looked interesting because it is located at the intersection of three rivers. I found a couple of interesting things to shoot on the way as well as a few interesting things in Defiance itself. One of those was this old railroad building. It was hard to tell if the building was still in use, but I liked its simple character.

For processing I just wanted to enhance the basic black and white of the building itself. There were some distracting elements around it so I used some vignetting to focus the image more on the building. The conversion and border were done using Silver Efex Pro2.

Feel free to leave comments, questions or critiques below. Thanks!
