    I don't know what that building is, but it's a great photo. I would just have given it a little more contrast.

    It must be even more impressive up close, go there and take lots of pictures!

    I like the intricacies. The bare trees set it off.

    it is an english idiom relating to the level of activity....whatever was here was a big operation as there are two of these side by side and the grounds are large. I was assuming it was a busy place at some point.

    hmmm the contrast looks okay on my monitor....glad you like the photo, I'll have a look at more contrast and see what results.

    see above.

    I was keen to get closer but the warnings were obvious and there are many houses close by....I may try another time.

    thanks a lot, I agree!

    heh heh good one.

    edited as suggested, a bump in the blacks!

    I find this very slightly disturbing, partly because of the sky and partly because it echoes a kind of documentary photograph that makes me think of 5 year plans and tractor production quotas - the visual equivalent of Radio Moscow in the 1970s, but in this case it's Soviet realism for the post-industrial age, if you see what I mean...

    yes I do indeed....a sense of depression, weight or burden.
