I couldn't decide between this shot and this one. The other one is perhaps composed slightly better, but this one is more interesting with the power lines (which I wish weren't cut off like that).

Some of you may remember this water tower. I obviously used slightly different processing techniques in this one, carrying the somewhat surreal look of the past several days. Maybe I'm just finding the same old, same old photos boring and trying to add a new spin to them...I don't know. I think it's good that I am experimenting with new processing techniques, but that's only a small part of the photographic process as an art, so hopefully I don't get stuck on trying to turn bad photos into a good ones by just some fancy PP (postprocessing).

Love the mood in this one, not sure if I like this composition better than the other because I saw it first and it seems natural or if, in fact, it is more natural.

Your post-processing turned out very nice. The deep blue works fantastic, highlighting the water tower and its red.

Wonderful processing, I think you're right about this shot being more interesting than the alt one. Great subject.
