This held my attention for such a long time, following all the shapes reflected in the water and imagining walking along the edge, carefully so I don't fall down into it!

I love that there's so many shapes to follow, and I feel that you captured the perfect section of it all within this shot - it's framed so well. The clarity in the image is excellent and it's a wonderful example of your technical skills.

My eyes were particularly drawn to the area which contains the reflection. For me this is one of the best parts of this image as it's like some sort of portal into the moment in which you took this shot. Thanks for sharing!

What it first brings to mind, for me, is the industrial antiquity of the structure. Having been a participant in constructing many factories and refineries I look at the fine points of the complex design and engineering of a structure like this.

Then, I think "If only walls could talk!" I can just imagine myself in hard hat, gloves, and steel-toed boots working the graveyard shift, with my lunch bucket and thermos of black coffee. And, I can imagine the shrill sound of the steam whistle signaling the end of my shift, and going home just as the sun is coming up.

I like the clarity, and depth of field, and I like the inclusion of the well-lite, fresh green vegetation to the left, in contrast to the harsh, red and rusted brown colours of the building.

I really love the colors, the beatiful contrast between the iron which is red and the nature which is green.

This rusted and abandoned industrial location, seems to be filled will tranquillity in stark contrast to the congestion of modern transport and stress of modern routine.... such a wasted resource and perhaps our greenest transport option.

Have you considered using HDR technique on this one? It's already an amazing shoot, and going for HDR would make it mind blowing I think :) Usually that really works for this kind of "industrial" shoots :)
