Sunrise at the Salt Works       ©2015 aoc46
Panasonic DMC-LX7       3rd place, 194 points
1/160s, f1.4, ISO 80, 24mm, Aperture Priority, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: RAW conversion: color and exposure adjustments, especially brightening foreground.
PP: vignette filter to add gradation to sky.
      Extra Info: Early morning work at a saltwater evaporation pond complex. The tank in the center is whimsically decorated to look like a cylindrical Leslie salt container.

    Thx, all, for the comments. Please note that it's sunRISE, not sunset - I want to be sure you appreciate how early I got up to do this!

    I enjoyed this photo very much. Beautiful colors and reflections in the water. Also a BIG fan of the HDR effect. Well done.

    Congrats on a fine finish. This shot was particularly sensitive to which computer I viewed it on.

    A very natural shot. I get the feeling that you pp'd to let us see what the eye see's and the camera can't. Very well done.

    Great atmosphere. The low light and colours evoke the daybreak so well.

    What I'm seeing first and foremost, is a breathtaking sunset, beautifully exposed. What I'm missing is a bit more detail on the industrial equipment, especially the truck in the foreground.

    Beautiful picture, But IMO, with the theme of the challenge, maybe the buildings should have been made a little more prominent.

    Beautiful sky, and the lighting on the structures are really nice, great shot.

    Wonderfully atmospheric. I love the truck in the foreground positioned at right angles to the pear

    Beautiful shot; gorgeous color and nice composition. I would have liked to see a bit more detail in the shadow area, however.

One of my favorites, for sure.

    Theme - 3 Not obviously industrial because hard to make out what the structures are
Technical - 5 Lovely color and enough detail in the shadow to not be just a silhouette
Composition - 4 Good but I think it is too wide. Not much in the right 1/4 - 1/3 of the frame that adds. The interesting stuff is on the left half
Originality - 3
Overall Impression - 4 Beautiful, colorful

    It almost feels like I could look around the sides and see more detail.
Great sky as well. One of my top picks.
