How insidious and lamentable the vast factory’s pollution

and overpopulation disaster more disastrous

than all the dead in every human war!

How clear it becomes to us then

that no one should have to be a slave!

  1. The structure is very ominous and prison-like and fitting for a statement on industrial pollution. I like the gritty feel of your processing and the strong composition.

  2. I find this to be a very striking image – the post processing certainly adds to the mystique of the shot!

  3. Nice work on this one Elaine. The angles and lines are quite interesting along with the smoothness of the smoke. I love the grain the DP1 produces at ISO800 too.

  4. étrange. mais très belle photo

  16. This simple image makes a powerful statement especially when combined with those lyrics. Well done.

  17. Superbe perspective, et atmosphère originale !

  18. Urban and industrial, almost like something for some futuristic movie. Shame it’s what’s happening here and now.

  21. Exceptional capture and very fitting words.

  28. wonderful B&W work, wonderfully composedm the smoke gives me the impression its some sort of factory or something but it has an ominous feel which is real cool

  29. Horrible, the cold high walls, the smoke and the tone reminds us of the reality. Excellent shot and processing.

  30. The presentation here is defentively according to what comes out, gritty and a bit grainy, depressing but excellent presented. Can almost feel the pollution pouring out.

  31. Looks like the sky here today except ours wasn’t pollution, it was storm clouds!! Another great shot!! I love your view of it all. It’s very ominous, much like the pollution it’s creating.

  32. I like the framing and the tonal range very much

  33. Amazing image Elaine!! I love this, the lines, grain and of course the smoke that inter-mingles with the clouds. Your choice of tones are killer!
