Steelworkers Ambience 12

This ends so far this tiny little series about a former steel mill: a blast furnace, reflected in a small puddle upon a weathered steel plate. All falls together.

If some one is interrested in the previous posted pictures, just enter the same named folder.

I'll have to back through and check, but I have a strong feeling that you've saved the best till last.

Great series Horst... I've enjoyed them all... Bob

Well Horst,...... I must say that I have enjoyed your series and the quality of work that was evidenced in the photos. Everything was technically very well done, with all the usually items of composition, processing, documentary appeal, tonality and texture being exceptional. This one exceeds all of that in that it adds a powerful impact of emotion to the scene. (need I elaborate?) In my humble opinion, this is by far the very best of the series. Excellent.

Superb textures, the reflection tells the story without the inclusion of the building in the shot, nicely converted too,

Thank you so much ...

Chris, E. Edwin, Robert, George, Igor and Karin for your really nice comments and generous rating.

Seems so, Chris. I love it, E. Edwin. Glad you enjoyed it, Robert. Thanks for your considerable comment, George. Thank you, Igor. Danke, Karin.

The amount of comments here and at the other pictures, without one, shows me that you have liked the series. Thanks for that, makes me glad.

Best wishes,

'Best' or 'not best' is besides the point. This is a great series.

Thank you very much ...

Lewis, glad you like the series. I´m mostly much more interested in series then in single shots. So its a great honor to me if a series is appreciated.

this reminds me of one of Caroline's puddle images brings back the good memories ...well done Horst ;-))

Thank you so much ...

Dee, for your nice words. Curious, recently I read some of Carolines comments. Unbeatable in their "clearness" and worth to read every word. And of cos am I influenced by photographers of this site. The photo you reference is still shining in my mind.
