Day 52 Theme # 220 Pipes

Steam Pipes, originally uploaded by needlepointernc.

The PIPES sticking out of the side of this building were belching steam or smoke. I took this from the car on I-95 in Baltimore, Maryland. I don’t know what kind of building this is, but there are a lot of pipes on it.

I love the close up of the smoke, it looks great against that backdrop….that blue sky is stunning!

I am strangely attracted to shots of industrial buildings. And, I really like how you processed these to make them look all spiffy and modern rather than grungy. Very cool lines and shapes too….

The closeup is really cool because of the contrast between the crisp courduroy building and the soft free-style smoke. Plus the kind of freaky nature of smoke coming out of the side of a building.

those pipes are huge! was the sky that blue, or did you alter it?

I used the Vibrance Preset in Lightroom to boost the sky – but it was pretty sunny out.
