About This Image

This is the Old Closed Down Patea Freezing Works. I took this photo from the river close to the rivermouth. The road you see in the middle of the photo is the road into Patea from the South. Using Photoshop CS I have Cropped to a 6"x12" and Destaurated the photo

Hello Tania, I am doing a project on Patea for my architecture thesis at Victoria University. This photo is great, and as you can imagine, it is hard to find recent photos of the freezing works! I was wondering whether you might be able to send me a high res version of the photo for me to use in my thesis, with full reference to you as the photographer of course. My email address is if you are inclined to get in contact - I would really appreciate it! Sophie

Thanks Gav. It will be interesting to see it for myself when we go back there this weekend.

Great photo Tania. One to treasure, now that it has burnt to the ground.

these old buildings are on fire releasing asbestos into the air. the wind is carring the .toxic smoke over Patea with some residents being evacuated through the night with the town on alert. The Waitangi Day concert in the small town has been cancelled, This is a beautiful old ruin as a photographer I love it. I hope fire fighters and residents stay safe

Striking subject, well presented. Funny how you can live near to a subject and not realise how it could photograph well. I like it.

Steve you are the best. That is what I was looking for (Without knowing what I was looking for)lol. Will give it a go and get back to you.

I like the "super" landscape orientation, and B&W fits the rather desolate subject. I don't know if you simply removed the colour by desaturating as your description suggests, but if you did I'd recommend experimenting with the channel mixer in PS. If you alter the balance of the RGB channels, setting the output to monochrome and holding the luminosity constant (there's a selection box I think you can check to do this) then you can get a great range of effects, particularly in altering the tonal values in the mid tones and sky thereby giving greater punch and contrast to the image.
