Mossmorran ethylene cracking plant on a "flare"
Lovely capture. Elaine
The industrial mono shot always a good one, I think working in mono brings the the shot to life and gives depth to your image nice work.
thank you Elaine and Paul iam gonna go back there with a diff strategie to get a better image but was fairly pleases with this one will increase the shutter time i think nxt time
A photograph 'fuelled' with many, many power full qualities.
fasnating...always like industrial scenes...
Yeah they seem to lend themselves to mono as wel,l i have plenty choice roond here
Wonder where the idea global warming comes from?, blame the motorist!, nice mono shot, plenty of detail and good tones that's the benefit of B&W that you don't get with colour,like it regards Leon.
Cheers Leon most of the smoke is actually steam so nae worries Iam from Fife and the biggest employers until Thatcher were heavy industry ie coal mining shipbuilding, steel and places like this inevitably there was environmental impact but people had jobs. Not any more !!!!! Fife has some of the poorest areas in Britain, i think its a balance between mans survival and his impact on the Earth but we still have to earn money. Not so in Fife , poverty rules
A very photogenic scene with lots interesting areas.
Could be a good subject for HDR if you have another visit.
aye will be going back up and yup would love tae try HDR on it.Does photoshop have an HDR part or is it a separate bit of software?
- and we think Caberboard pollutes?!! - Methinks this is Grangemouth, IS it?
No its Mossmorran ethylene cracking plant near Cowdenbeath/Lochgelly in lovely Fife gonnae go to Grangemouth as well for some pics
very haunting shot I think, lovely in B&W X
thanks andrea x
Like it in the mono, good exposure, well done.
Ta exposure wasn't easy because it was much brighter than i had anticipated going to go back with a better plan
Hi Roddy. Love the atmosphere. Glad you didn't try to do anything about huge blobs of white as they fit so well. Some years ago I had the honour of helping the late Walter Nurnburg hang his exhibition in Covent Garden, London. Since you obviously have a feel for industrial you may like to look him up. PS, thanks for describing my home town, Ponders End (of the world) as grungy, s'pose you live in somewhere really up-market & glamorous like Easterhouse, Glasgow. (joke) Si.
Yup I will Si , I stay in Kirkcaldy in the kingdom of Fife yeah its really up-market actually its one of the three poorest places in Britain We never recovered from Thatcher breaking oor balls 30 years ago
