The setup for this image

This is an abandoned motel along the Gold Coast Highway at Palm Beach. I wasn't game to go inside by myself but it looked like it had a story to tell.

Taken with: Canon EOS 650D, Canon EF-S 15-85, 15mm, 0.8" @ f/3.5, ISO 3200.

I shot this quickly without thinking about white balance, forgetting about the yellow lights along the highway, but knowing that I had raws to play with.
Step 1
The main change was correcting the white balance, then some desaturation.

Basic panel:
Colour temp -1k down to 2.4k, and tint -15 down to +3.
Saturation -50 from default.

What do you think?
