Factory Ship       ©2015 Mepo
Canon EOS REBEL T3i       30th place, 17 points
1/639s, f5.6, ISO 100, 1419mm, Aperture Priority, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Crop. Clone out one vent. Simplify lines and curves. Adj contrast, brightness, saturation. Dodge & burn. Detail enhancement. Levels. usm       Extra Info: This is just the roof of a local 3M factory but I thought it looked like a ship coming in to dock so cropped it that way. The weather was extremely cold with buffeting winds. I was glad to get back into my car.

    I like this overall. The odd-looking leaves in the foreground are a bit distracting. How did you color the steam? (at least I assume it is steam) All the vertical objects appear to lean to the right. For some reason I keep wanting to straighten them up. In my favs anyway.

    Elyod: B & W looked terrible. I've no idea why I overblued it.
SteveBee: Well now, if you think I made a factory roof look like a ship don't you think you could have afforded at least 3.5 for originality? LOL And you are right I did leave the hull too dark.
Jade: Actually I lied . It is a ship and I made it look like a factory :-)
aoc46: You've been spoiled by Venice and the Swiss Alps.
Lo: Thank you.
fc: I could not position the car close enough to use my window clamp LOL Anybody would think you knew I took this but I'm pretty sure you didn't guess :-)
aKilter: Thank you. you have excellent taste ;-)

    You succeeded! I thought it resembled a ship, as well.....before I even read your comment. Well done. I like it.

    Like the composition. I think the pp gives an interesting effect to the smoke and "bridge"

    Interesting color but to me, not that visually exciting.

    I've never managed to make those stacks work for me though they always scream photo-op. No surprise if I tell you this doesn't work for me either though it really does look like a ship so you were successful (more than I have been).

    Theme - 5
Technical - 4
Composition - 3
Originality - 3 It does look like it could be a ship.
Overall Impression - 3 The brightness of the sky overwhelms the dark building

    I wonder what it might look like in B+W. It's an interesting composition, but IMO there's too much blue.

    eagle1. Appreciate the detailed comment (and the support!). It was a bit of a conundrum, if I levelled the roof the big stacks at the left in particular lean over like crazy. That's why I decided to treat it like a ship. Glad you like the filter - not much real industry around and the original was BOREing.

    Personally, I like your "painterly" effect and choice of subject matter. The only thing I think you should have done is to level the fence or wall to actual horizontal. It's probably just me - but the slight incline just bothers my sense of balance. Still, this is one of my top favorites.
