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.

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

Light on steam. And darkness. Beautiful in the way that such places can look only through the filter of photography.

What can I say Rod absolutley brilliant. Just demonstrates that colour is not always required to show a nightscene.

...more a faintly disgusting Orc, I'd have thought.

P.S. This pic seems to be doing quite well. Deserves to. I'm going to download it and tell people it's mine.
