Thanks so much for all your comments on yesterday's upload. I am so glad this series is bringing out so many great stories (like woolybill1's!!!) and different angles of analysis.
I hope you don't get bored just yet.

The silhouettes add scale - I love the way the light is outling the shapes here.

I took the picture for those air conditioning ducts, they looked terrific with the light.
Thanks Kate for taking the time to comment.

A most interesting wide view, I am glad you mentioned the AC ducts--- I was wondering! Agree with Kate.

I wouldn't have presented this photo without the figures. It would've have no value at all.
This place is huge, I hope you can get that feeling. It is the 48th floor of the tower.

No chance of becoming bored with your work, Marian.
This is really superb. The long skinny letterbox format is the perfect choice, and the two figures lost in their conversation are ideally placed near the edge of the frame, which emphasizes the vastness of the space around them. And as for those ducts... Wow!
I wish I'd taken this, I really do.

The figures and the lines in the ceiling, that's what brings this to life for me. Powerful.

An outstanding, inspired and inspiring photograph. The b&w is excellent, as is the choice of crop. The composition is effectively a diptych, busy on the right (well, containing two people and three other vertical objects) while the left is a bright void. And possibly the most artistic use of aircon ducts that I have ever encountered.

Bill

The figures may be small, but an extremely important element - just cover them up to see how much difference they make Smile

There was a fire in the tower 10 years ago and it is still in works. Sad

Thank you Bill for the UA, I am particularly fond of this picture because my dad besides being an air conditioning technician was an excellent amateur photographer and the person who taught me about this art we all enjoy. I miss him greatly and wish he would've seen my pics. Sad

Thanks everybody, I am continuously learning from you all.

Another unique vision Marian Smile
As with other comments, the location is mesmerising but it is the figures that turn it into something very special. Wonderful.

Thanks Bernard! I am honored by your choosing of this picture.
I was lucky to have a couple of very patient companions. I was doing an inspection for a project I finished, but I brought my camera because I knew it would be a one in lifetime chance.
Thanks again.
Marian
