hmm. what is that? i guess it was "once a hive of activity"... but what does that mean?
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 would like to see some closer shots, that building looks like it has spectacular detail to it
I like the intricacies. The bare trees set it off.
from the days before synthetic honey existed..
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.
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!
giving it a bump since the edit.
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.
Brilliant display of the death of an industrial society. :thumbup:
