An interesting subject and a good bit of textures in the rust! IB

Its just the way I saw it, it's had a bit of a touch up. It was in a burnt out mill in my home town, fantastic victorian Dalton Mills. Used in period dramas a lot, few pop videos too. Part of it set on fire last year, no doubt get pulled down and developed now. We used to play in the mill grounds when we were kids, so this place has a lot of meaning to me. Depressing to see part of it burnt and ruined forever.

A good angle to take from and great texture both on the Iron Clad Switch and the wall, unfortunately your low shutter speed has let the sharpness down somewhat. Would have been impressed if the Brass Toggle switch part in the middle had been more defined, good effort and well seen though, would be good if you could re visit the site and re take the shot with a tripod.

I know what you mean, the noise on the switch detracts a bit, I've only got into photography a few months ago, still a beginner. Already plan to go back real soon. The place has some excellent subject matter for close up shots, everywhere is peeling, loads of old signs on the walls, some rooms we found looked untouched for years. It's like stepping back in time.

I'm not entirely sure why, but I really, really like this photo.

Sure, as Doug said, it's not perfect (although that could easily be resolved in a second take!), but there's something a little...eerie...about this that I really enjoy.

Great shot Smile

It was taken in a mill near where I grew up, used to play in there as a kid. Part of the mill caught fire last year and this was taken in that derelict part. I liked the fact it was switched off, as if that part of the mill needed to be left in the shadows now. Its quite a mill, Victorian architecture at its best. Dalton mills, Keighley. Check it out. I actually like the noise in pic, it seems to make it appear even more textured and aged. I will be making a return visit before it no doubt gets demolished.
