The power lines are pretty much all like this in Thailand.

Didn't shoot this with minimal editing in mind, and the tones are on "faithful" on the 1D which makes everything look pretty flat without at least curves adjustment. In lieu of any postprocessing, a dramatic wide angle seemed a good choice, and the vignette from the 10mm adds a bit to the drama of the image in this case.

Hello from the critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge well

Congratulations on your red ribbon. It's great to see your ultra wide angle in action again Eugene and what a mess you've captured! Your composition enables us to appreciate what a mess this is, how on earth do they manage when things go wrong as I'm sure they must do? The composition consists almost entirely of diagonals which are always powerful and quite literally so here. The only minor distraction is the blue hue from the vignette at the top edges. Well done.
