These are a translation of a personal impression on these industrial remains. IR is from a Hoya R72, switched to B&W, quadtones, and a little Orton effect on top.

Excellent and spooky in a broad daylight sort of way. There is a feeling of failed history in 'industrial remains'. People used to make their living there, but now it's abandoned. Spooky, eh?

What is the Orton effect?

Hi Chris. When I was a kid, a looong time ago, my father and I used to go to this mill to fish at the dam. These were the very last years of operating, we are talking the fifties here. We took the spoiled area as something normal with piles of rubbish and toxic waste. Nowadays, the place has been cleaned and restored to a park with bicycle trails, picnic tables and a café. Fish has returned, ducks and herons. Yves (aka Boobie Joe) hangs around at times and he has gotten some of his best night herons shots from there.

The Orton effect is stamped from it's inventor or popularizer (?), Michael Orton.
Check his site here http://www.michaelorton.com/
The effect comes from creating a layer with a blur selectively applied to the highlights (there exist numerous ways to do it, just google "Orton effect" - you can also look into the LuminousLandscape tutorials for a good one http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutorials/gaussian.shtml). It creates a dreamy impression ; I find it compelling used in combination with IR that drives the mental in the same lane.
