This was a gas station/restaurant at Cadiz Summit back in the Route 66 days. Now a palette for Grafetti artists and the imagists with a spray can. 5 exposures tone mapped and then re-tone mapped and then remixed 4 textures.

I really dig the colors in those walls. I'm not a fan of the surrealistic HDR's, and I feel this one hasn't crossed that line. Fantastic photo. The pipe/manhole-coverish thingy in the foreground I find adds some additional texture and feel.

After looking at it a few times, Kevin, I wonder what it would be like with a little de-sat on the sky? To me, it distracts a little from the fantastic building walls.

Nice image. Maybe you could apply a 1 or 2px feather between the sky layer and the rest of the image so it's a bit softer.

The sky does bother me too, especially on the left side.

Thanks, I will try that.

Fascinating shot.
The very blue sky and the magenta cast to everything below give just a slight surreal feeling.
