This photo which I posted here at Aminus3 back in October 2008 was recently used under license by the UK government on page 10 of a document called Tackling Climate Change in the East Midlands
The photo was inspired by similar long exposure photographs of the cooling towers of Ratcliffe Power Station by the fine art photographer Michael Kenna
I've learnt so much about composition from studying Michael's photos and then trying it for myself.
Cottam is a 2000 MW coal fired power station in Nottinghamshire. The 8 distinctively shaped hyperbolic concrete cooling towers are the main subject of the photo but in the background you can also see the taller smoke plume coming from the main boiler chimney
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
