Haunting images of abandoned farm houses

Dutch photographer and urban exploration specialist Niki Feijen goes behind "do not enter" signs on dilapidated houses to document furniture, clothes, and other ornaments left behind by their former owners. His eerie HDR images reveal remnants of life in rooms across western Europe that are now left to decay. Frozen in time, it's hard not to imagine the people that once occupied the spaces.

Urbexers HDR. Get over it. It adds to the mystery. Great pics.

He is more interested in making saleable images than urban exploration. I too believe many of the images are staged.

The places are interesting and spooky, but the heavy HDR ruined many of them unfortunately.

Many people don't like HDR. It's just a "cool" thing right now. Unfortunately...

@Raist3d - I can go with some almost unnoticeable HDR if it contributes to the image improvement, but HDR as show-off or as "creative filter" is a nightmare to me.

500% agree with you. Some people ask me what I think of HDR out there in general, I tell them 98% of it just s*cks. There's the 2% that knows how to do it.

What's with the heavily processed images.
Let the abandoned houses speak for themselves just as they are.

Pretty cool images but they seem overprocessed(as mentioned before), loosing their documentary value. Nice as a piece of art though, especially nr 16
