Still running a bit dry on images lately, so here's another one from the archives. Many of you probably recognize this tower from previous images. At first I wasn't too sure about this shot, but after cropping and adding a touch of sepia, I started liking it a bit more.

Good composition, placing the tank just outside the middle..... makes it a lot better.

Wonderful, these sort of shots always make me think 50s movies, giant robots and other fanciful stuff left over from my childhood. I guess I never grew up. :-)

And yes, what a neat way to spruce up what might have been an ordinary shot by adding the touch of sepia and cropping it just so.

I love these types of structures and the black and white works well!
