I am looking for people interested in exploring in Norfolk, Suffolk, Va bch, or anywhere up to Richmond. I am interested in photography so I need to go during the day. Here are a few pics from Portsmouth

and Richmond

Probably shrunk them to a decent size to make them fit. I know if I upload pictures from work I have to make them fairly small so it doesn't takeforever to upload, where as if I upload from home I don't have to adjust as much

I live in Hampton and I know of a few places, but not too many yet. I would ask what type of places would you prefer to photograph?

Well...... crap........

Well the top right looks like a fish eye lense was used and it seems to be a steam boiler on the left side of the picture, now I'm only trying to make more sense of the pictures but... Top middle looks like it was taken at the same place the top right was taken and looks to be some sort of motor or generator or it could be a steam turbo generator or some type of centrifugal pump, can't tell too small and there seems to be some one trying to get in the way. Top left I can't tell too much about more clarification is required or just bigger pictures.

The bottom three have "Felton Gas Works = Richmond, VA" I think i tried to enhance the pictures as much as possible but I'm not at home right now so I'm doing it with government lowest bidder technology. Seems to be a fire extinguisher, debris in a trashed room and a exposed to the elements office.

Well...... crap........

There seems to be a fairly heavy handed use of HDR.

This is only my opinion, but you are making the shapes very hard to see. I'm going to call you Dali.

I value your opinion. I think you are right looking at these examples. Maybe I will revisit them when I get more free time. Hey Katetron, Have you been to that bakery just off of Broad? I have seen pics and I want to check it out next time I come up. You are welcome to join.

Eugh, I want in there!!! Definitely can't afford gas up to Richmond anytime soon though.

EDIT: ZOMG WAY too much HDR!!! Everything else about those shots is pretty cool...nice compo and everything...just lay off the HDR!

In all honesty, that place is BORING. It's completely empty. Just big, empty rooms. However, I'm not trying to discourage you from traveling to Richmond. I'm sure I could get you into some better places. Ones that you did not see during MAMU.
