I guess exposure for this shot must have been a challenge but the result you have achieved is excellent and to my eye there is an almost abstract element here.
The light has caused the steam emissions to be slightly overexposed but the solid structures have been captured in fine detail.
Very well done indeed.
Ronnie.

I think the lack of detail in the dark areas has helped to concentrate the sense of a busy steamy atmosphere. It's a yes from me.Smile
