I wonder what it would have been like in colour. Nice. Thanks for sharing.

I like the atmosphere, and the fact that you've done a black and white edit on it. It adds to the 'dreary industrial' feel. My one quibble is that I'm not quite sure where to look. At least for me the focal point is the smoke/steam rising from the buildings that are just off centre. I wasn't there, so I don't know what is to the left or right, but personally I'd like to see the smoke/steam slightly more on a third.

Look forward to more!

Best,

-Ben

the mood is there, with a nice dark conversion.. but as was mentioned, it really lacks an anchor.. so i am kind of on the fence with this one.. its moody and ok, but not spectacular..

this was a tough one to deal with during the shoot itself.

it was quite dark and dreary with rain threatening, and for some reason, my lovely

little digicam has been having problems with focus in low light (getting new camera

real soon. yay!).

so most of the shots came out kinda soft, this series, especially.

the color shots were, well, pretty "blah", so i went b&w, played with

shadow/highlights extensivlyto bring out some kind of detail and dodged the heck

out of the steamclouds and the lights to set the apart from the dreary background.

even though it probably doesn't look like it, this shot took my an hour in ps to even

getit as unremarkable as it is.

will try and post something from this shoot that is worthwhile soon.

thanks for the replys on this! wasn't expecting any.
