This plant produces 200,000 tons/year of high calcium lime for water treatment, paper, and steel mfg. and environmental uses.

The glow of the lights really gives this shot an impressive feeling. The longer exposure really brings out the details in the factory. Feels almost like an alien world.

I really like this a lot. The color and focus are super and in my opionion the tracks in the front make the shot. DPz

Good clarity of focus--good exposure--very real -you feel you can almost touch it--well done

I lik the moodiness of this type of shot. I think I'd try and darken the sky a little more. I presume you've received clearance from Dept. of Homeland Security to publish this...

Rich of colour. Good work.

Great color!

WOW! This is my winner for this week!
Great subject, very good composition, excellent exposure and depth. The reflection on the railway and the way they bend lead you into the picture.
Very good detail love the color, good choice of time for exposure, I think it doesn't look so nice in daylight. :-)
