The old Vermont elevator a few days after the blizzard hit last week. Taken late in the afternoon.

Sir, that is an excellent photo. The subject does not even interest me all that much, but the light/shadow, the proportions, the framing, all make it very pleasant to look at.

I agree with flippedgazelle on the photographic qualities of this picture, but I am also interested in the "elevator". What has it been used for?

Thank you Torgny. The area farmerssell their corn and soybeans to the company that owns theelevator. There is a railroad next to it and trains pick up the grain and deliver it to factories or seaports for export. About a hundred years ago there was a town named Vermont next to this elevator, it is gone now and all that is left is fields and this place.

Ah, the second picture is a pleasure as well... it's not that I find the subject uninteresting, merely that my interest in the subject is dwarfed by the engaging photographic quality.

I freely admit that I particularly enjoy photos where the star is not the camera, but the nut behind the lens!

I do agree in your approach.

Though in the first shot it is more descriptive and has better contrast balance, I enjoyed the visul story of the second one. Railroad's and electricity post's dissapearance under mist through the woods. And the uniform light over the buildings without casting any shadows, sterilze its beauty by keeping them stationary from the gradient effect of the air.

Bob,

Great greyscale. Did you use your camera in black and white mode or did you desaturate?
