The Old Steelworks

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 16 May 2008 in Business & Industry and Portfolio.

This is the old steelworks in Rotherham now converted into a museum.

It's a view of one of the original electric arc furnaces with a simulated steel smelting.


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!

I'm envious, I'd love to photograph one of these workshops Ian; splendid capture.

Aaron Schmidt from Auckland, New Zealand

Very nice. Wish the contrast was a little higher and I wish the image was a little bigger so we could see more of those wonderful details. But that's the only 'criticism' I have for this fine shot.
