Taken from the top of a local hill overlooking the surrounding plain. The idea being, to emphasise man's need for energy at the expense of the surrounding beautiful landscape.

Greetings from the Critique Club

A great piece of commentary, here. Thanks for entering it.

Your desaturation detail looks good and certainly the black & white portion is nicely done. The one thing that hit me when I first saw this image in competition and again now, is that those cooling towers are very orange. I wonder if you happened to boost the colors just a tad beyond believability, or maybe they were just that way at sundown/sunrise and it's all in my imagination.

In any event, no matter that the scoring on this was merely average, you told a good story, and told it well.

I wish you continuing future success at DPC.

The image as a whole seems to be leaning to the right.... straighten it up and you may have a pretty good image.

Telling. Very thought provoking.
Honestly, it doesn't really grab me visually, but conceptually, I'm captivated.
