Re: Challenge 75 - Beside the Seaside

Thank you Alan, congrats Alf. I really enjoyed all of these shots, thanks to all the contributors.

I have to confess that I thought all the rest would be "pretty" ones so a bit of industrial grit would stand out from the pack!

In case you're interested, it is the oil refinery at Fawley, on the Solent, taken from across the river in Hamble. I had been wondering how to do it justice - all those towers are quite spectacular in the flesh but the subject is about 100 feet high and a couple of miles long so I wasn't catching it very well. Then we suddenly had that dramatic light through the clouds and I thought it could look good in heavily stylised mono.

Ciao ... John

Well done Alf - A worthy winner s

Some great images to choose from.
Incidentally, Bow Fiddle Rock isn't an HDR.
I may have went over the line with the adjustment brush in LR CC
