Bon travail Pierre:) Le 'dialogue' ciment/nature est très bien réussi à mon avis:)
Les réflets dans l'eua viennent 'ajouter un gros plus à la photo.

Oh la belle composition ! Le traitement N&B est très bien rendu. Pour chipoter un (tout petit) peu le cadrage, j'aurai essayé d'inclure le bout manquant des arbres à droite.
Mais elle reste belle cette photo ! Bravo !


well composed pierre :)
very good b/w shot

Very nice view Pierre. I like the portrait composition, choice of black and white too. The long reflection of the chimney is good.

belle compo et bonne idée du n&b. Et comme l'ont dit d'autres membres, la réflection de la cheminée est parfaite. Bravo

Hello Pierre,

Scenes like this always intrigue me. Your composition is fantastic and the B&W tones are perfect. Many contrasts... the sky and water, industrial and natural and the dark and light. Excellent shot and the reflections are superb!

Peace & Love to you and Suzanne!

Ce que je retiens de cette photo, c'est sa lumière et sa composition. Toutes les deux, parfaites! Bravo ! Annie

amaizing eye you have, Pierre! you made this ugly tower here looking like an artistic column... maybe by the reflection, maybe by the equilibrum, maybe the shapes... I don't know... I keep lookig at this one for stealing your secret:) but it's perfect like a sphere, I can't steal nothing from it:))


hi pierre,

nice capture. i like the mix and B&W give a vintage effect.

Une très belle photo significative. J'aime bien cette balance entre la cheminée et l'arbre, tous les deux partageant une resource commune : l'eau.

Le rendu en n&b est sublime, bien balancé et le travail apporté est magnifique aussi, excellent résultat.

Maintenant, si je pouvais faire quelque chose de similaire ... :)

A nice contrast, Pierre, and I think this is one of the rare occasions on which I prefer b&w over colour. Nice compo, the reflection is very lively with all those rimples. Not a beautiful sight, but I guess it's called "progress"...

Contrasts everywhere! The B&W contrast, sky and water, industry and nature, plain and rippled sufraces, round and tall things. I like this for all the contrasts it has :)

Salut Pierre !
J'ai laissé passer celle-là qui est très bien vue, j'adore ...
Le noir et blanc est excellent, ta composition au poil et ton titre excellent !
Un peu phallique peut-être ... ;)

I like the pov and the reflection on the water. Nice mood also. Well captured, Pierre.

Best regards,


An elegant composition.

Hi Pierre,
Been looking through your gallery (yes all of it!), and this photo stands out as my favourite. I haven't read all the previous comments but I'm sure it's all been said. Still, I really like the contrasst between the water and sky. Somehow I think it makes the tower stand out more. There is nothing else in the sky, further drawing your eyes to the tower. This shot works superbly in b/w.
