  #181 Framing (Revisited Again)

Post-Processing: Tone curve adjusted to better cover the dynamic range in the image. Added some clarity and vibrance.       Extra Info: It was built in 1915 as the world's largest pump station designed to drain its name sake lake for land development. When that project failed the lake and adjacent lands were sold to the federal government for a wildlife refuge. It began a second life in 1934 after it was converted into a hunting lodge which closed in 1974. In 1989 it began a third life as a wildlife education and research facility until age and disrepair forced closure in 2000. It stands vacant now. In 2006 renovation efforts began, but the budgeted funds ran out. There are still hopes for completion of the renovation and a fourth life for this historic and iconic structure.

    Beautiful lighting, color, focus, and of course, framing! My number 2 pick. Good backstory, too.

    Beautiful entry! I certainly hope that a 4th life is in this lovely building's future. The natural framing works well.

    Fits the theme very well. I especially like the frame of trees and the clouds drawing attention to the small balcony. Only improvement - remove the shadows on the building.

    Natural and effective framing. Love how the clouds form a starlike pattern to draw attention to the tower.

    Very nicely framed and photographed. Thanks for the historical information - I hope the old pump station will get a chance at a new chapter in life.

    I like this photo ... I might have cropped in the left side up to the tree trunk... also wonder what it would have looked like without the shadows on the building... in some way they distracts me not sure why... but still up there in my TT.

    Otherwise nice view, but that tower is a bit distracting when it is in the middle of the photo.

    Well framed to get the tower placed between the leaves. Good crisp colours.

    Such a bright, sharp image - lovely - and the darker path and trees frame it with diagonal lines - interesting.

    Beautiful shot, the tall tower perfectly framed by all the other elements. Such a shame that it currently stands vacant. Very high in my favorites.

    Wow #1. I love the colours and textures. Even the shadow from the tree on the left seems to work somehow. And the sky too...

    Nicely framed by greenery, picturesque shot.
