Start putting these up in larger sizes and we can celebrate the advantages of large format. I think you could have made a longer exposure so that shadow area on the left would contain more information but that may not be what you wanted. These decisions are strictly personal and there are no wrong ways.

These post-industrial scenes of yours are quite touching. There is something very poignant about places that were once the scenes of great human endeavour, co-operation, enthusiasm and effort but are now abandoned and forgotten...

Rod, thanks so much. I agree with you - I could or should have also added slightly more DOF too, I think. Back when I shot that, I didn´t have too much in-depth knowledge on exposure.

In regards of what you say about such places, I totally agree with you - they somehow come to life as soon as they are left. They begin to tell their stories, fascinates me every time.
