Skyline from a dystopian future

85mm, 1/320, f/5.6, ISO 100. Shot on a full frame camera.

Last weekend, my wife and I took part to the Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk. One of the walks (I discovered Göteborg had two this year!) went through Gullbergskajen, a quay with lots of old, rusted, semi-abandoned ships. It's located very close to the heart of the city and it's a great place to visit (although I wouldn't go there alone at night...).

I had a short telephoto lens with me (a.k.a., the "cream machine") and fucused on some of the amazing details that were laying all around. This shot shows the top of a big, chunky generator. On the back of the camera, it looked like an abandoned futuristic city with tower buildings and  landing spots for starships. To increase that feeling, I went crazy with the white balance and I took it all the way to the blue side. If you want to see more pics from that day, you can also check:

BTW, there is also a competition among the participants of the photo walk. If you are curious, here you will find my submission to the contest. My wife's entry is also very cool. Check it out!
