Kimberley Clark are one of the largest manufacturers of paper in Europe. Several years ago the main warehouse at their Northfleet plant burnt down and was replaced by a new metal sheet clad building. Its a very big shed being nearly 8 stories high and with an area covering several football pitches.
I regularly drive past this location and have been meaning to take this shot for some time. Its really just about shapes and light. No doubt this wont be everyones 'cup of tea' and I am expecting a lukewarm reception but for the record I really like it.

Absolutely love the idea, very stylish, but I think it needs slight adjustment to get the building on the left absolutely vertical, then it will be perfect. I'm voting for the adjusted version.

Portrait format enhances the feeling of height here Derek - it's about light for me. Especially on that tower/stack (don't know the English word for this) - the spiral running up it is the only break from verticals. Nice one.
