Superb. I've never seen a steel works look so atmospheric.

Is it mist or polution??

Thanks Steve. I'm sure it's mist, sadly the works no longer produces steel, or pollution.

+1

(I wonder if it is the toning that might give an impression of pollution.)

Excellent stuff. I like the way the focus is closer to the front so the steelworks are just slightly OOF. Works really well.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Super shot Barrie, I like everything about it - the muted colours adding to the misty, moody atmosphere and the composition is superb with the eye being lead across the grassy wasteland to the Industrial panorama under that polluted sky

It looks much better on Flickr, but what surprises me most is the fact that your work has had so few "views" - we've seen a few of them in this forum, but they are well worth a peruse

Beautiful image Barrie, the mist is right where it needs to be, between now and yesteryear's ghosts...

That is a really lovely image - wonderful, but the content is so sad.

It's a top class shot. The 'tension' between the crisp foreground and the atmospheric distant view isn't immediately apparent but once you have noted it it really pulls the whole piece together.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
