Normally I hate to see so many towers blocking the view, but they make an interesting composition. Nice job of adding appeal to an otherwise blah subject.

Really nice composition and colors. Very interesting wiring between those towers! My one wish would be that the highlight area in the sky wasn't totally blown out. Otherwise, great.

This is a great shot. I love the mist and the warm colors. Composition is spot on and I don't even mind the blown out part of the sun. Adds a bit of character I think. Very well done, one of my favorites!

I agree with Fil. The blownout part adds to the mood of the sun. Very nice composition and exposure. It reminds me a little of the film Blade Runner.

Very well composed. Your mix between sharp towers and wires with misty surrounding works well. Also I like how you managed to let the presence of the coming sun, just enough to clear the top of the masts from the mist. It's a very graphic and delicate picture.

It's truely spectacular! My first thought was like Ned, but you made a fantastic composition out of a nasty modern need...
(Do they look a bit tilted to the right, or is it my eyes?)

Wow, absolutely stunning. The monochromatic colors really enhance the transmitters perfectly.

Normally this subject is very ugly, but you have get a very nice composition. This shot is very nice.

Just amazed by the delicacy of the towers. Yes, for me the word that comes to my mind is "delicacy", looks like subtle and faded ink trails on a yellow paper, it's really contrasting with the actual use of these towers.
How can photography be so unreal?

very atmospheric - gives a feeling of majesty of the towers and adds a bit of mystery. Was this shot with a filter - or manipulated for colour in photoshop?
Just a note, you have - I think " street light tops at the bottom of the image - with some wite - I think that they ditract a bit

This a lovely composition of a fine capture. The only change I would make is to the frame, which is a bit much in my estimation with the heavy black lines and your prominent signature distracting from the subtlety of the muted detail of the towers. I'd recommend a single, narrow border no darker than the darkest tone in the image without the signature. I've noticed that some members delicately add their signature in a lower corner using a distinctive typeface. That can be tastefully done. Your signature line is nicely done, but simply too large, and too bold for this image, especially against the white frame. The photo remains a winner nonetheless, thanks for sharing it with us.

Wow, watching at the thumbnail I somehow thought it is a drawing on a brown paper.
But now the photo looks fascinating for me because of the effect it creates.
I'm too lazy to check this out, but aren't these poles tilt to the right a bit? Maybe half a degree or so :p
And as I was attracted by the effect of a drawing, I don't like the sun, trying to penetrate through the clouds of dust (or whatever it is). If the whole background would be equal, the effect of drawing would remain.
Anyway, beautiful :]
