One of the many steam tunnels that runs underground below the old abandoned psychiatric hospital in Whitby, Ont. Can.

This network of tunnels connects the powerhouse building to all the other various buildings on the property and supplies steam for the heating radiators.

The tunnels are quite dangerous...still loaded with asbestos - anyone going in to the 100-year-old tunnels is advised to wear a protective mask (and avoid kicking up dust while walking).

Cool image. Kinda creepy being down there and thinking about how many possible psychos might have tried to escape using those tunnels. Hannibal Lector could be hiding just "down the hall". You captured that essence well I think.

I don't know how I missed this one. Once again, you manage to control difficult lighting situations with ease.

Thanks Tom...

With regards to exposure - what I quite often do is set the e10 on manual exposure, light up the LCD viewer and dial in the exposure time until the viewer image looks the way I want it to - then take the shot. Although using the viewer consumes more battery power...the viewer image is very accurate in relation to the exposure time/setting.

Sometimes I'll simply try it on full-auto just to see what the camera automatically suggests, then bracket exposures from that point.

But shooting in old dark abandonments, I get used to the unusual lighting conditions - so its mostly old hat stuff nowadays.
