Tom,
Regardless the processing this is an excellent comp to show the size of the buildings with great sky to work with.
Your solar processing looks fantastic as usual.

Terrific light here! The solar actually gives the factory a spooky feel to me.

Tom,

You should make a map with all the abandoned buildings you have photographed.

Generally, a dramatic image. But, the structure has many blowout white areas from the extreme contrast applied, and the sky looks horrible. Sorry, but this image is worthy of fixin'!

I don't recall seeing this effect on the sky before, Tom.
It kinda makes the blue sky look like crazy black clouds. Plus the regular white clouds. Hmmmm.

Jeffrey - we all see with different eyes, eh . . .
the solar approach carries with it certain emotions as well as visuals, not all appealing to everyone. I suppose I am my the critic who must be satisfied most, hope some others might follow; maybe, maybe not.
thanks for the comments, tom

yes, Charlie, there is a dark mood to the image and not just in the clouds. the whole concept of abandoned carries with it a dark mood.
darkly, tom

Tom, I don't know anything about the special effect that I now see you applied to this image. Perhaps my comments are no longer valid if the effect is supposed to do that and it's what you wanted. Nice work!
