One of the giant wind turbines that line the River Mersey Estuary in Liverpool.

I'll post the colour version of this one tomorrow.

@thierry: Thanks Thierry....I converted from raw to jpeg in Nikon NX2 then imported to Photoshop CS3 where I did the B&W conversion. The tone and imitation film grain was added using two different elements of a Nik Software plug-in called called Color Efex Pro.

Not an especially 'nice' scenery but very strong. I like the positioning of the main object in the middle and the heavy grain. Very strong!

Good image , I like the bridge in the distance .

@Robert: Thanks Robert....I'm not absoluitely certain but I think that the bridge like structure in the background that you mention is part of the roof structure of one of the two main football stadia in the city - either Goodison or Anfield.

These giant turbines are strangely beautiful, and I love the way you photographed it. This B/W version is stronger than the color, in my opinion.
