Factory views are hardly mainstream of TE, but I'd like to show this on as it is (kind of) topical.
In September it was announced that mobile phone business of Nokia company will be sold to Microsoft. Today the decision got the final approval on the shareholders' meeting.
On a big picture this is just one phase of continuous renewal of the company. In 1868 a paper mill was established on a small town of Nokia by the Nokianvirta river. Throughout years also other factories were established in the town of Nokia. Today none of these are part of Nokia company anymore, but they are still operational on different ownership. This picture shows tissue paper factory and hydroelectric power plant. Other products that are still manufactured in the neighbourhood, and were once part of Nokia's product portfolio, include floors, rubber boots and tyres.

A very interesting picture of this old paper mill. I was here once, I guess it was around 1987, to visit the factory that produced vinyl floor covering. I worked for Forbo and we were competitor,s but we still had a lot of cooperation in the Flooring association. This is a beautiful picture!

This is a lovely, interesting and effective presentation of this characteristic older industrial building scenery with a glimpse of daily life in it. Your composition is well balanced and elegant, the perspective and the red buildings and chimneys fill the frame and delight the viewer. Clarity is superb, vibrant colours against nice blue sky backdrop is a very appealing combination. Well done.

Interesting view of the factory. I like all these red colour. Interesting note. And what a pity that Nokia is sold. The big firms are so greedy.. Excellent composition. Thanks for sharing

But your picture is very well framed, good quality of your composition. Well done.
Many factories are closed in France and this is a big shame

I think you and I are in the minority because we actually enjoy these rustic scenes of factories :)
Industrial photography is some of my all time favorite subjects.
and i didn't know there was actually a city called Nokia in Finland, showing my ignorance there.
factory or no factory, i hope people on TE enjoy this one because its beautiful. Just look at those colors, the sharpness, the clarity, the blue sky with white clouds...superb.
