I met a traveller from an antique land,Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stoneStand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,Tell that its sculptor well those passions readWhich yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;And on the pedestal, these words appear:My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!Nothing beside remains. Round the decayOf that colossal Wreck, boundless and bareThe lone and level sands stretch far away.”–Percy Bysshe Shelley

aged digital photos! 😛
Hah. Yes! I’m playing with the Nik collection for post-processing.
it is too bad all the good grain emulations are gone…
Well, the HDR emulation is odd. But the Analog isn’t terrible. I’m not a huge fan of grain, usually. But I wanted to get a more gritty feel for some of these. Plus, it’s fun to play.
are you starting from RAW images?
Great photos. The two of the Crosley Building are particularly cool. The tower portion housed early broadcasting facilities. If I understand correctly, during WWII the folks working down below produced about a quarter of all the proximity fuses used by the Allies.
