great feel to this with all the dust ...

I feel there is more depth to this, using levels to bring some of the dark & light levels back , it still gives a good mood to the dusty atmosphere ..... SmilePaddy

Agree with the above. Good shot but could be better with some extra work in PS to add contrast.

Definitely power and dust. I don't think that anyone who has never seen this type of thing for themselves would ever appreciate fully the "Power and Dust" in the true sense. I think this is a great capture!

Great atmosphere, well composed and presented.

Have tried a tweak in levels and it is definitely worth doing, as is a play with curves. Personally, I find the white border too wide.
