This mining building is not used any more. It was between Cortez and Telluride, Colorado. I am not sure what they use to mine there but it was good enough for me to turn around and go back to shoot it.

Nicely exposed sky, along with the rest of the picture. I think I saw this one on Bonanza once.

Sure looks like it should be a set for a TV western.

As we see in your B&W photo(good choice! and you can also try some other effect next time..) ,which has something to remind anyone , this place has a lot of potential and therefore richly deserves revisiting.
Eh, if I am expected to criticize, I'd say, the foreground looks a little overexposed to me. But, that's allright!
Thanks for introducing, Bill.

i really like this photo... hope you dont mind... struck me as a "moodier" kind of scene... just a rough edit

Good edit save for the somewhat artificial looking sky on which the clouds seem to have been attached!.
On the other hand, happy to see that the overexposed foreground has been restored nicely as if shaded by a cloud. Couldn't be any better in this respect:-)

i reeeeeaaaallly like the color version... its very well saturated and the blue in the sky!...polarizer?

wonderful photo to start with!

Hi Logan,

Yes, this photo had both a circular polarizer and an enhancing filter on the camera when it was shot. The camera is a Nikon D200 with a 17-35mm f2.8.

Agreed with Logan. The clour version is also great thanks to eye catching colours.
And here's my edit for the foreground. Hope it works :-)
