One of my very first DSLR photos from November 2007 that I've just reprocessed from scratch - my Nikon D40 is 2 and a half years old already. How time flies!

The original version is here

NIKON D40 1/160 second F/8.0 ISO 200 30 mm (35mm equiv.)

I do like the tones in that bank of cloud / smoke.

I am glad you reprocessed. The differences are subtle but the above photo is the best. The high skyline is very dramatic and brings out the 'power' of the Power Station. I am not sure whether the 'grainy' effect on the right hand side was achieved on purpose but I feel it is a positive feature for the photo.

A very different mood created by the two treatments.

The first shot makes me feel like I am tucked up in a burrow safely away from the monstrous structure.

This new shot is very oppressive! Where's my burrow! *eek!*
