    Please comment/critique this photo. Its a photo I took of the rig that I work on most of the time. I purposely underexposed to keep the foreground dark, and draw attention to the well lit places. The large view plainly shows people on the rig floor and many other details. Hope the small web view comes across that way as well. Thanks for any comments.

    I like it. Very atmospheric shot at just the right time-of-day.

    I love it, I think the underexposed foreground adds to the picture as you intended.

    Hahaha couldn't resist. Seriosuly though I love it, would like to see a large print. I think you nailed the exposure.

    Great shot Derrick. I think the underexposed foreground draws well to the subject. This image just mutes a noisy work place and shows peace and silence.
