Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Abandon Buildings III (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Pentax K200D
Lens: Tamron AF 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 LD for Pentax
Location: Lake Burton, Georgia
Date: Aug 7, 2011
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/250th
Date Uploaded: Aug 7, 2011

This is the result of a tornado that tore through Lake Burton, destroying or damaging 70+ homes.

Getting this photo entered was a challenge in itself. I do not have my pc with me, but was able to borrow one to download the photo from my camera. Because it did not have any editing software, uploaded it to my workshop folder, then downloaded it to my iPad and used apps to edit the file and then resize it. Then I had to email it back to the borrowed pc (can't submit photos to dpc from the iPad) and then uploaded it. Finally, I updated the submission details from the iPad.

I will be happy if this breaks 5, but I really wanted to see what I could accomplish with iPad.

What a sad commentary. It has good emotion. The shot itself looks slightly and unintentionally out of focus. Good composition using rule of thirds.
