    Congrats, I'm not a big fan of HDR but I think you applied just the right amount for a dramatic image.

    Congrats on a fine finish even with the unnatural HDR!

    Or the HDR processing, Bernie. I know I always take a risk with this group when I enter an HDR image.

    I like the composition, colour but the hdr on the sky is too much for my liking...

    What wires? :-) actually I don't mind the wires but the pp glow around them and the chimney are distracting. Good find for a piece of industry and the tall chimney is just great.

    quite right two no wires and the place falls apart
the hdr is well done I am not a fan of the process however it works here

    In my favorites, but in my opinion it would have been better to frame the photo so, that the chimney would have been more to the right in the photo.

    Not a huge fan of the processed look but it is effective; I might have overlaid this onto an unprocessed image and seen what I could do to achieve a less processed look.

    Actually, I think the wires are integral. They create a nice diagonal line of movement across the frame. The chimney is dramatic, but maybe too overpowering without that relief. Nice job!

    What a dramatic, industrial image! The HDR is done just right here. Great colors. And I agree with your decision to leave the wires in! In my favs.

    Striking image, though I'm somewhat put off by the heavy tone-mapping in the sky.

    Powerful shot, and I agree that the wires lend a sense of height to the photo. Great perspective and colour.

    creative and unusual view of the stack. Like that. But sorry, wires got to go, they just detract too much from the story. Had they, would have been in my favs.

    Steve: not sure I understand . . . how would you place the stack at an angle?

    Theme - 5
Technical - 5 Good use of HDR
Composition - 4 No problem with the wires; I think placing the stack at an angle might have been more appealing to me, but I'd have to try it to see
Originality - 5
Overall impression - 4 I liked it immediately

    I agree entirely about the wires. They add to the feeling of work. I like the entire perspective. Great shot
