I took this back in 2008 and always thought it was worth spending a bit of time on. Not sure why I procrastinated for so long. I suspect I was afraid I wouldn't be able to do it justice.

I bet the actual sculpture was finished long ago!

Like the POV Chris. I have no idea the size of this piece. The clouds add drama. Good one.

Thankyou Charles. I seem to remember that it's about the size of a large dinosaur and apart from the frame, which you can see in the unfinished legs, is made from discarded domestic appliances. The rings on the left (rear) leg are the drums from domestic washing machines.

Yes I was lucky wth the clouds.

Hi Chris. I think you've done a great job on the processing of this image. I like the POV, makes me feel like i'm about to be crushed by this walker looking structure. The clouds add to the mood. Cheers

If you keep quiet Thorin, you should be ok, as I think it's moving away from you ;0)

Thanks for taking the trouble to comment

thought this was a scene straight out of "Transformers" ... the dark clouds render the machine even more menacing! a rather surprising take from you

Very dynamic shot Chris and made even more dramatic by this ominous sky. Very Beautiful, Fed

I thought this beast looked familiar, so I checked back through my posts and found this one http://www.myfourthirds.com/document.php?id=17126. Not a patch on the mood and presence of yours. Nice one, Chris.

Yes Martin, it certainly was at the Eden project, so I guess it is the same beast.

Thanks for he link and the kind words.
