Blast Furnace

Blast Furnace
At the "Landschaftspark Duisburg", the site of an old steelwork: A blast furnace (I think) in the fake evening sun. (I spend too much time with this kind of stuff.)

View of the old harbor in Duisburg. The city lights reflecting off of the snow and the clouds give a very even illumination. Taken with a beanbag on the railing.

I have an other version with fake vignetting. Do you like it better? I'm always unsure abou…

This image would probably be a good subject for a HDR. The colors are a little extreme, and I manipulate…
