Engine room

(I hope I'm posting this in the correct forum)


Engine room of the closed coal mine of Winterslag, Belgium.

I had to take this picture from the outside through a window, holding the camera high above my head.

I've tried to 'age' the photo a bit (It looks much better this way than the original).

Re: Engine room

I like it but I'm not sure about the processing. I think you could add some contrast (maybe selectively) to enhance the really nice criss cross of shadows from the windows...

You do that over here and Homeland Security would be on you like white on rice.

I was surprised when I asked if I could take some photos in the DFW airport and was told "Yes".

Re: Engine room

I'm with Jack here - more contrast would give the image much more impact.

Re: Engine room

I think #1, #3 and the sepia one work really well, with #1 my favourite! That's exactly what I meant. Nice one
