    Laurie and I had an opportunity yesterday to visit the former Bethesda Steel location yesterday. What is cool about the location is that site of the former steel mill has been preserved for visitors. It was also my first real chance to get out with my new X-T3; Laurie was shooting the X-T20. I love rust as I immediately lean towards shooting HDR to bring it out. This also gave me an opportunity to try out the new Aurora HDR 2019.

    My favorite shot of the day is below. I used the XF 55-200mm to compress the scene and shot HDR.

    What a massive facility. I can only try to imagine what it must have been like to work there. More images here.
