Manufactured Landscape Shots

In addition to my review of the documentary, Manufactured Landscapes, here are a few photographs from the inspired week’s theme.

It wasn’t the best of weather for shooting, so I did do a fair amount of editing with the photographs this week. Especially, the Heinz Factory shot, where I purposely increased the contrast and saturation in the original photo since I wanted to give the photo a more grungy feel to the old brick factory building on the North Side of Pittsburgh. I also wanted to isolate the KL & Gates building downtown in the last shot, where a brand new skyscraper is being built right next to it. I felt this shot highlights what Burtynsky was trying to say in his documentary – progression and industrialization never truly stops.
