Pigeon House Powerstation, Co Dublin, Ireland - Revisit

Decided to head to the Pigeon House Power Station with my friend who never urbexed in his life so this was a great start for him. I visited here in 2010 but only got to see a little, but i did the whole place now and i am very excited about these pictures because they are the finest i have ever taken and edited.

The powerstation opened in 1903 and closed in the 60's, the buidlings were stripped out and used now again for film. Some awesome features still remain such as the control room and various electrical equipment. The building itself is a stirdy redbrick and its such a beautiful one at that.

I can honestly say this has been oen of the finest explores i have ever been on and thats why i took so long in publishing thes epictures as i wanted them to look fab.

Looks a good mooch - waaaaay to much HDR for my liking though, have you got any photos without it?

I'm with M. Chill on the HDR, you don't need it. Good shizzle though.

Great mooch... Looks like it has been left untouched.

I'll third the "no need for HDR", tone it down, and your pictures will be where they should be. If people can't tell you have used it, it's fine. Shadows have a purpose though, they add to a picture.

Great place and interesting pics but agree that the HDR isn't necessary.
