Look for a low point of view. I entered a stairway near the building to get as low as possible. The railing does break the composition. Post-processing: semi-HDR, adding vignetting, and a split tone overlay
Use an additional element to break the pattern.
Sometimes it is fun to pull the sliders to the extremes when doing post-processing.
Split-tone effect applied to a building element. After adding contrast, the tiny patterns in the blue hardstone became more visible. Location: https://email@example.com,4.4029713,3a,75y,205.31h,95.12t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sXC9MuVdY1yOxYbpFCv8x8Q!2e0!7i13312!8i6656
Without color correction this were only tones of yellow. Tip: Use the color temperature slider to create a palette of pastel colors.
Look out for the small things. In post-processing I made a color correction to have a cold-warm color temperature contrast
A sign giving strong contrast with the green leaves and rusty background.
When you get into an old building, see how dust is collected, rust did his work, water has damaged the paint, etc. Try to find interresting compositions and push the button. At least that is what I did.
Some pictures have nothing other than composition. No need to look or search for a subject or a meaning. Location: does it actually matter Gear: not crucial (let’s say “my eyes”)
This “special” building dominates the skyline of Hasselt(B). Only few people may like this building, anyhow, I tried to make some “special” compositions of it, and yes, I understand, only few people may like these pictures.
