    Very well composed, nice shot.

  • That’s quite a dense industrial complex. I like the color procesing.

  • Look at that wonderful house in the woods and its relationship with what’s behind it! Reminds me of that house for sale in down-town Dungeness.

  • Your photographs are beautiful. I don’t mean this as a confrontive question, I am curious: How much do you alter the images? That is, besides the beautiful color processing, did you take anything out or put anything in and do you disclose this? The reason I ask is that there are always heated discussions about this, several going on right now on various blogs and you are obviously someone who is a fine artist in both photography and Photoshop. So I am curious also to know how much you disclose with any kind of caption or otherwise if you do alter an image?

    • Thanks David. I’ll do what ever I think is needed to the photo, to me all that matters is the end result. I never usually disclose, if I were a photojournalist then it would be different I guess but I’m a fine artist.
      Just for the record nothing but toning on this shot.

  • Awesome toning!

  • great PP in this, I used to live near this place, we were withing the ‘blast zone’ should it have exploded!

  • Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve done a great job with this.

    In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Firefox.

    Exceptional Blog!
