    Hi! Those shots were taken in Nuclear Power Station in Greifswald (Germany). I went there with the technical university trip. I found there the hardest lightning conditions I have ever had!

    Mentos these are great! Number 4 is really cool and I love the last shot, but they are all good. I envy you, I would love to get the chance to photograph one of these.

    Enjoyed the series. I am surprised you were aloud to take pictures. I can imagine how hard the lighting conditions where. Good job.

    the power station is being destroyed now... it is closed for 15 yrs now and the technology was Russian so no electronics and no secrets there :) I hope so :)

    I know how hard it is to take shots in factory/industrial environments, think it's because of sodium lights and various other nasties, you captured these really well and got some good interesting shots.

    I like No.4 and the last one best out of them, they are the simplest compositions, and generally they appeal to me the most.

    Did you see Homer Simspon while you were there? :D

    I really like #4, 5 and the last one! Great series! I can imagine how bad the lighting was in there!

    luckily I'm not glowing Jon :D:D
    And I hope there wasn't any radiation... well... if there was any they would not allow us to enter I suppose :p
    Tempra: no, sorry... no Homer Simpson there :p:p:p

    Nice industrial shots. Is that not a bit of an oxymoron, a nuclear power station with poor lighting?

    Very nice; 1,4, and 7 are my favorites.

    Fans of industrial photography should check out Margaret Bourke-White, John Sexton, and the Bechers.
