When opened up the colours are very nice, a nice shot that might have been missed by many of us, well worth taking.

The silhouette of the refinery is excellent but cannot understand how you managed to get the bright strip of sky and then such dark strip at top. - 4 / 5 stop grad perhaps ?

Think it would be better cropped just above the top of the oil stacks.

I like the crop as it looks as though the refinary is filling the sky with 'black'

Very nice shot - and also good stock photography. Could suit all kinds of industrial pollution / ecological scenarios...

Nice work!

Thanks for the comments!

Jeff - no filters used. The dark sky is underexposed dark clouds (it was just starting to rain) where I was. I see what you mean about cropping the top - I'll give it a go.

Julian - thanks for the stock tip!
