Alone in the Workshop

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 14 May 2008 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

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 8 seconds F/8.0 ISO 200 15 mm (35mm equiv.)

Everything is there: good framing and composition, excellent choice of color and texture.

@Ana Lúcia: Thanks Ana....I was trying to catch the lone workman on the factory floor but with such a long exposure it was difficult - especially when he moved :-)

Observing from Chester, United Kingdom

It's a big workshop, and a nice shot covering top to bottom. Good 'un.

@Observing: Thanks Mike!

Cheryl from Texas, United States

nice compo, that is a tough shot, good job

@Cheryl: Thanks Cheryl...yes, it wasn't easy with such a long exposure - he moved part way through the 8 second expousure and went back into his office which is why he looks so indistinct.

Viewfinder from Bradenton, United States

Nice, Ian. The use of wide-angle/tall is brilliant.

MadScientist from Düsseldorf, Germany

Impressive shot! (Note to myself: buy wide-angle lense!)

@MadScientist: Thanks...this 10-20 is my favourite lens.

Justdin from Beijing, China

Cool shot! I like how we can see all the way from the floor to the very tall roof.

amy from Rocky Mountain House, Afghanistan

The blur of the lone worker adds to this image. VERY nicely done!! The whole scope and scale of this is fantastic, Ian. What kind of shop is it?

@amy: Thanks Amy...this is an old steelworks that has been converted into a museum and this is one of the maintenance areas for the museum staff.

Excellent capture of this place. There are steel forgers in Houston, Texas that look very similar to this. I've seen the photos.
