Auction Set-up in Aurora

This weekend we auctioned off many of the things my father collected over the years. (A task that was exhausting, heartbreaking, and a relief.) My brother asked that I document the event since he had to deal with many of the details related to tractors, tools, and telophone equipment.

These pictures were taken as we were getting set-up. To add a little drama to some otherwise pretty standard shots, I processed them in Lightroom using a modified version of Trey Retcliff’s Aurora pre-set.

Did I succeed?
