Challenge: Framing V (Basic Editing)
Collection: 2012 Challenge shots
Date: Apr 17, 2012

Taken at an abandoned power plant.

Here's the plant:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1011754.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1011754.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

if you look along the right wall, you'll see large circles, if you look at the large circles, you'll see a small circle inside:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1011755.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/100000-104999/103142/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1011755.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This is where the turbines used to be. There's a third one along the wall that didn't get in the picture -- the metal cover has been taken off so that you can see inside. (this building is actually part of the park service. They leave it open for the public)

If you climb up on the little ledge in front of the whole and use the wide angle, you can get the shot. The blue is real. It's been painted.

(I didn't think about taking a zoomed out picture to show you the full scene, because I've been there so many times, and I knew what I was going for. sorry!)

It's a wonderful spot, unfortunately, it's also a big party spot, so many times you'll find it full of trash. :(

Congratulations on a top 10! An interesting place to photograph for sure. I like the repeating shape of the circle frame and circle on the floor.

Congrats on Top 10 but I think the other one with a different crop would have done better

I like this one as a photo, but is it really basic edition?
