    Your treatment of this image is outstanding. The white detail against black works much better than would have the reverse. This was high on my favs list. Congratulatons.

    Spooky use of post processing. I fear and love it at the same time.

+3 for symmetry (1 vanishing point, 2 independent mirror planes necessary to build up the picture from the basic motif)

    Good work, nice perspective. My top choice.

    Thanks for all the comments and votes. This is one reason I love this site - I didn't know what to do with the photo I'd taken and then I thought of what raf or Thomas might do so I flicked it to B & W and then to the negative. Then a song title came out of nowhere and I just ran with it. Thanks for the inspiration guys!

    Well done. My number 1.
It reminded me, too late, that their is just such a situation in my city. (-:

    Nice idea and perspective. When I first saw this, I thought you had a really strong flash! The only detractor I see is the white flora. In my top five.

    Nice treatment of the power lines - it gives them an other-worldly look that emphasizes the perspective.

    Jade - I seem to keep hitting your aversions LOL but am happy you liked the perspective - your space invaders made me realize what I had been seeing all along!
raf -Glad you liked the negative - it was a bit of a desperation move as I'd done hydro towers before and wanted something special. No preacher here - all I got is "With a boulder on my shoulder, feelin' kinda older" LOL

    a straightforward perspective treatment with the fade to infinity, The negative makes this in my view....so I exptect the weird lyrics to come to love and see "Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east"

    Immediately said "Space Invaders" to me (the video game). Despite my aversion to infrared imagery (which this reminds me of) this is a very effective use of perspective.
