    • Thank you, Bonnie. Little bit of the old fish-eye going on there. 🙂

  4. Really interesting picture Scott. I like the fisheye perspective and the effect you’ve applied. It has a lot of impact. 🙂

    • Thank you, Chillbrook…seemed appropriate for a cement plant. 🙂

    Wow. What kind of processing did you use on this? It’s terrific.

    • Thank you, Lois…processed it with Picasa…something like HDR finishing (?) or something like that. You can increase the intensity of the effect and it brings out all those other colors and textures…thought it was kind of nice. 🙂 Thank you , again.

  7. I have to echo everyone else and say what a cool effect. The look reminds me of the colorful “rainbows” created by oil in puddles on the street, I never thought I could see such beauty in a rusty old building. Thanks for the new perspective. 🙂

    • Thank you, Nancy…I appreciate the comment…and strangely, I always liked the oily rainbows in street puddles. I’m glad you enjoyed the post…and you’re welcome for the new perspective. 🙂

  8. Amazing! You actually made them rather unsightly things look cool!

    • Thank you, Miss Gunta…they do look kind of neat, don’t they? 🙂

    • Thank you, Nathan…from our old industrial part of town…walking distance from work. 🙂

  10. I love this image. It is really good. I love the way you have treated it.

    • Thank you, Leanne…it was fun playing with it…seems to fit the context well. 🙂

  11. I love this image – industrial art at its finest. The subject, the colours and the framing are all spot on.

    • “Spot on,” Finn…I like that…thank you. 🙂

  12. You are obviously just having way too much fun, Scott. I think it’s a very good thing for us to let our imaginations run away with us once in a while, and you’ve let yours take you to a very cool place here!

    • Thank you, Gary…I am having a rather good time. 🙂

    This is a pretty big plant. I assume it is no longer in operation since the silos have no dust containment equipment on top. The fisheye lens and the grunge processing work wonderfully well for this subject!

    • When I was walking through the plant, George, it appeared to be still functioning…while there were no mixers about and no constant bustle of activity, it didn’t strike me as abandoned. There were some people and pick-up trucks in a parking lot…but I don’t know. I thought the fisheye lens and grunge were pretty cool effects, too. Thank you.

  14. Love this. Grungy, Arty. Ideal treatment for this.
