    The pictures below show how the one of the biggest mine of the brown carbon and the power-station looks like. These pictures was taken in Bełchatów (Belchatow) City in south Poland.

    #3 is wonderful. I think the b/w does justice to the subject.

    OMG those are amazing.

    A couple of those first shots could use some deepening of the color maybe. Love the smoke stack all by itself, and the earth eating machine is gonna give me nightmares. LOL

    SO COOL!!

    Fascinating photos, all of them, of a very fascinating motif, too (and I know how large these machines are, we have brown coal excavation in Germany, too, though no longer at any great scale, but still, there is this one huge field between Köln and Aachen, for example). I think you framed and composed all of them very, very well, you chose a wonderful day for your excursion to the mine and power plant, so you got some brilliant colours, and you caught some exciting views!

    Along with all the others, I think that the b+w photo 3 is quite, quite exceptional.
    And I like your panos.
    And the last!
