About the Image(s)

This photo was taken from an old Amoco Gas Station. I think it's interesting that this gas station has been abandoned for a long time. But the building has been preserved. The old fuel price is also marked on the abandoned fuel gun.t. Shot by iphone 12 Pro, F/1.8,1/7s, IOS 100. Edited by Photoshop.

So many textures. I love old gas stations. The clouds almost look like the grounds patterns. The iPhone is amazing. Nice job!   Posted: 07/04/2021 21:48:23

Thank you, I made the overall picture to lower the contrast with photoshop , so that the picture does not look so heavy. It's like facing the history or the abandoned picture more gentle.   Posted: 07/06/2021 01:07:21

Yes, it tells a story of abandonment. The weeds make the picture. Foe help I would make the sky darker. That is just a personal preference. Wish you would have included the original file.   Posted: 07/05/2021 12:58:10

I will attach the original file next time. In the original way, There are excessive colors on the sky and signs. So I made it to black and white.   Posted: 07/06/2021 01:09:21

Yes it is! I checked the history of this gas station brand. He was acquired by the BP gas station, which also means that "history" still exists around us.   Posted: 07/12/2021 13:41:23

I think this is a great image, to me the monochrome rendering really increases the image's appeal and impact. I think abandoned buildings make great subjects and I find this gas station to be exceptional. I like how you have filled the frame with the pumps and building, to me the whole image works to tell a story. Your composition draws my eye into the image, I like the American flag still hanging on the porch. Also, I like the sky just as you have it.   Posted: 07/08/2021 10:25:45

The scene shows a sense of nostalgia that is indeed aided by the black and white. The clouds in the sky also serve as an asset. Nice image!   Posted: 07/08/2021 19:38:47
