There is this huge retaining wall on the back-end of the parking lot of the closed shopping center I mentioned previously (365-164). It’s always leaking and seemed to be cracked from day one. Another thing done horribly wrong at the site. I always meant to get a photo of the cool patterns from the leaks but never ventured near the wall until today. The wall was in shade which gave the concrete a cool color cast which contrasted nicely with the rusty stains. I enhanced the contrast in processing which emphasized the colors even more. I also blended in a Topaz Adjust layer to bring out the texture a little more. I shot this with my Pentax K20D and DA 55-300 lens. That lens, considering its “budget” status, never ceases to amaze me and I like to use it for such shots.
I noticed not too many people click on the photos for the best view. You’ll get a much larger image to view. The small ones in the posts don’t do the photos justice.
