bygone age
Lens: Tamron 10-24mm Camera: K-5 

I planned a trip last year to Europe specifically to shoot abandoned and derelict locations and this is a shot from an abandoned farmhouse that I visited in Luxembourg. What I loved about this location was the vintage furniture & objects left at this site, the colors and textures of flaking paint and faded yellow paintwork. I believe some of the items may have been staged by other photographers (i.e. the wood in the oven) but this is exactly how I found the room).

Due to the bad lighting this was a fusion of 3 shots and has been processed in Photoshop (also S-Curve applied, some selective color and straightening/alinement of the scene).

Photo Details
Camera - Pentax K5
Lens - Tamron 10-24mm (10.6mm)
