The abandoned grain elevator in the ghost town of Dorothy, Alberta.

First time working with HDR/pseudo HDR images. I've seen many HDR images that I would consider over-processed ... am I guilty of the same sin?

Man, does THAT bring back memories! So few of those babies dot the Alberta skyline any more. Well seen; the Canadian west as it once appeared.

Love the scene and the colors. The only nit I would pick is that I am distracted by the brightness of the tops of the clouds. I think a bit of burning in that area would make this perfect.
