Hi guys, I've added a rule: exceptionally over-processed HDR photos will be removed. I understand that everyone is entitled to their own artistic vision, but I feel like this Community should serve as an example for others. If there are photos which are very bad examples of post-processing, I don't want that to negatively influence newer photographers.

Feel free to tag me in any photos which you feel may violate this rule.
Thank you for all your contributions and for keeping this Community alive!
--Todd

Until the early 1890s, there had been only privately owned slaughterhouses in this city. But private slaughter of animals was prohibited, so the city had this big slaughterhouse built, which was opened in 1893. Next to the prohibition of private slaughter, the city also hoped for improvement of hygienic conditions and less traffic inhibitions due to the cattle drive.

About this community

*PHOTO POSTING GUIDELINES* FIRST OFFENDERS WILL BE BANNED. I hate to be so harsh, but there are simply too many repeat offenders for me to keep up. ALLOWED: -Abandoned buildings -Draining and Craning -Otherwise off-limits -If it's not clearly abandoned, give us some back story. -Good HDR NOT ALLOWED: -Photos of ONLY graffiti -Broken items. If you're going to post detail shots, at least give some context. -Photos without attribution (if you didn't take the photo yourself). -Requests for locations. DO NOT ASK FOR LOCATIONS OR LOCATION INFO -Bad HDR -Newbies, buy this: http://www.amazon.com/Access-All-Areas-Users-Exploration/dp/0973778709 Urban Exploration isn't just about photography, it's a love of the rarely seen places that surround every one of us. Often referred to as UE or UrbEx; those of that photograph these places, in my opinion, represent the counterculture of photography. We go where very few are willing to go, we bend the rules to experience the places that are left to die, and we capture these places at the end of their lives. Stepping into an abandoned structure that hasn't been seen in 50 years is better than any museum because you're seeing the place as it once was. You're seeing it through the eyes of the last person who locked the door and turned off the lights. It's an indescribable feeling. All I know is that I live for that sense of excitement. Our modern world is making it harder to experience the sensation. The best we can do is capture these places before they die and share our art for those who will never be able to see it in person.

Some of the large abandoned halls that made up this huge railway repair factory have already been demolished, but most of the about 10 factory halls that have been built by the "Deutsche Reichsbahn" since 1910 are still standing and are trying to defy time itself. The factory was specializing in the repair and maintenance of steam locomotives until it was closed by the "Deutsche Bahn" in 1996.

"The nightmare of materialism, which has turned the life of the universe into an evil, useless game, is not yet past; it holds the awakening soul still in its grip."
