    In the middle of local sports complex, there is this structure that I always looked at without knowing what it was. Turns out it's VOR...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VHF_omnidirectional_range

    somehow it made it worth stopping on the way home and taking a quick snap - I will be back for sure to take some more creative angles

    C&C is welcome

    Tried a little blue in the highlights as the color temperature was meh.. then punched the greens and desaturated after a few curves over amplified the ranges.

    Should be a good subject for you if security does not start taking your picture!

    Maybe a longer exposure would pick up more warmth? Or just seeing it larger would give me a different feel. If you could have positioned yourself lower, the form and contrast could have been exploited a bit more.

    I think people like a bit more contrast in images, so that was my main goal in editing yours. And I do ignore color temperature sometimes!

    Shoot this thing up, go back a night too,.. and please share your treasures should they show up on your light table.

    Valid points - that pic was a spur of the moment and didn't even know if there was a road going to it. Today I stopped by to check closer and it turns out that the roof is semitransparent too bad I can't get underneath - it has fence with barb wire all around, but good, that there is not security personell around it.

    I didn't have a camera with me, but will def have it with me tomorrow - I plan riding motorcycle to work tomorrow and think it has good potential for a bike pic
