Philadelphia, PA – Eastern State Penitentiary (HDR)

The feedback on these HDR’s from ESP has been wonderful!  So something I rarely post back to back photos of the same location…well that goes out the window today!  Here is one more shot.  I think it is Cellblock 6.   This cellblock is closed to the public. To grab this photo…I cranked my tripod in a weird way as to get as close to the locked gate (with bars).  With the wide angle lens it was fun trying not to get the gates bars in the shot.  But with a little luck…and 9 exposures later..another scary cell shot from ESP!  Now just look at this place..yikes!   I’d hate to be stuck in there at nite by myself!   I added a preset from onOne Photo Tools to give it that off color look.  I’ll post Al Capone’s Cell next week!

    Wow, I would love to get inside this place – as a photographer of course, not anything else. So gritty and grungy – great composition and processing.

  3. Jason Hines says:

    Awesome grungy detail here! Good choice with the coloring.

  4. Mike Criss says:

    What a cool place, looks like you took full advantage!

  5. Love the processing on this Peter! Great composition in what I remember to be a tight space. I always say it’s better to put your camera behind bars than your body! 🙂
