Cell Door Latch

3836-40 topaz nx 72dpi, originally uploaded by Donnie Fulks.

The cell doors have rusted over the years of disuse. It is hard to imagine being on the other side of this mechanism for months or even years. This was in an upper cell block in a non-public wing of the prison. In this newer (relatively speaking) block, we were allowed to enter the cells. I was relieved that the locks on the doors were no longer operative due to rust and neglect.

HDR EfexPro, Topaz Define, number of NIK filters. To help define the shadows I blended in at low opacity a very contrasty B/W layer.
