This is from one of my construction sites in Barnsley. It may look nice and clean at the moment after refurbishment but raw sewage pumping stations are generally quite unpleasant places.
Having the 10-20mm lens has really opened these places up for me as previously they were almost impossible to photograph. Even at such a wide angle I had to place the tripod low down in the corner and then lean over the camera to view the screen upside down. One of those tilting screens would have been niceWink
This is currently being shown on a 42" screen in our Leeds office which looks quite good.
Looking forward to more feedback and mods.

You are right Frank, the mesh flooring should line up but that was part of the original scheme. Our scope was to replace pumps, pipework, valves, MCC, instruments and cabling. We are in the middle of commissioning at the moment but pump 2 has shattered it's impeller.
The mesh decking is galvanised by the way.
Thanks for the comments Frank.

Very nicely done indeed. There is just the faintest hint of wide angle effect which is no problem at all, and I see you used 10mm too. Excellent. The Sigma 10-20 is a fine lens, but must be used correctly for record work, and you have done that.

In my 30 years on coke ovens I had to deal with pump houses a lot. Not raw sewage, but equally noxious stuff - ammonia liquors, tar and benzole. There was always the risk of explosion if we got a leak.
