A reservoir in the heart of the Brecon Becons Wales, just a little cloning to the photo to get rid of some fence over the walkway of the tower.

WHOA!:O That's a cool shot - and a very cool subject. I'd hate to fall into that thing - it looks likethe fabric of our time/space continiumripped - very "Matrix" like. Got any more?

Outstanding shot. Looks like a black hole. For those who don't know, it is actually the inlet pipe for the turbines below. It also regulates the height of the water in the resevoir.

Again, if you have the color original, we would like to see it. Also, can you tell us what steps you took to convert to BW?

Once again I don't keep the colour ones after I put themon disc, this reservoir is only 15 mins away from where I live, I can reshot the image anytime. The conversion as always is done using channel mixer, then eather multiply mode or soft light mode,and dodge and burn.
