Wonderful. I really like the first and last. With a couple of the others I wondered if a darker tone might give more atmosphere. Not a criticism because exposure looks good for a clear view. Also can I ask why the aperture of 3.2 when you had the tripod and could go with longer exposures?

Steve, Mark and Rafael, thanks for looking and commenting. I appreciate the critique.

Steve, The camera was set at aperture priority. Took few test shots and I liked the results of theshutter speed that the camera selected.

Rafael.I was not comfortablewith much longer exposures because there was a 200 hundred ton presspoundingand there where vibrations.

All are excellent shots Emmanuel. A couple of them may be on the dark side for some but having been raised around a machine shop I know everything is not lit up well and it gives more ofa realistic feel to the series. It's fun when you get a chance to photograph something that the average public my never see otherwise.

There sure are some colors there, I would not have expected that many. When I looked at the first shot I immediately had an image of cutting myself on the sharp edges, seems every time I work with sheet metal I do that. Nice job on capturing the indoor shots.

Thanks for your nice comments Ted.

Usually in a plant like that you don't expect to find anything interesting or colourful to photograph.

Emmanuel,

A very nice job, especially in the light conditions. I can relate to some of the machines in your photos, as the chemical plant I worked in for years had several of them in the maintenance shop. However, you do have some I had not seen before.

Were you using a remote shutter release?

Thanks for the kind words Jerry.

No, I did not use a remote release, I used the camera's timer. It worked very well.

A really interesting series, Emmanuel. I like the first one best - the offcuts in the foreground seem to add to the composition.
To me, the exposures and focus look spot-on - under difficult lighting conditions. As you say, the colours are great.
Do you turn off IS when you use a tripod? There are some who recommend it, but I have not yet seen anything definitive in favour of doing so.

Thanks for your nice comments WindRowe. I don't see any reason why we should turn off the IS, as you see the results are great with IS on.
