The Real Abandoned Overlook Hotel
Unlike the fictional Overlook Hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, this hotel is really named the Overlook. The abandoned hotel is located in the small, wine growing town of Bernkastel-Kues in Germany. Other than it has been unoccupied for about 13 years, there is no information as to why the hotel was closed. All of the furniture remains and it looks as if everyone there simply left. There are rumors that the hotel is haunted. According to urban explorers who frequent the spooky site, cameras malfunction, sounds can be heard throughout the premises and items seem to move around the hotel by themselves.
This is real? Ten there’s been a whole lotta processing on those photos, ‘cause they look like CGI/video game sets to me…
They’re using an HDR technique :).
Ahhhhh…I thought HDR was supposed to make things look more realistic, not put them into the uncanny valley… (=P)
