Power #2

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 13 May 2008 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

A closer look at the power station cooling towers that were the subject of yesterday's photo.


Thanks to all those of you who've been voting for me at VFXY Photos (see link below)...this photoblog has been steadily heading up their ranking system over recent months and finally got into the Top 20 (very briefly!)

I'm not sure that I deserve to be in such exalted company as 'Chromasia' and 'Absoultely Nothing' - my two favourite UK Photoblogs, but I'm not complaining!

Thanks again for your support. I really appreciate the vote of confidence!


NIKON D40 1/400 second F/11.0 ISO 200 450 mm (35mm equiv.)

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

This one really makes the viewer aware of the size of these structures. See the shrubs and lamppost at the bottom. Nice one Ian.

Very good image, Ian! I think I prefer this photo to the yesterday`s one. The details today are more pronounced and it feels more solid.

Awesome photo. Those towers really feel like giants in that image. And rightfully so you ended up in the top 20 on VFXY. Your photography really deserves to be up there. Never ever doubt that!
