Wonderful night shot! The colors, light and composition are perfect. The mill look like robot. Good job!

Hi Hermann, It sounds a good idea to convert a waste to be a theme park. Good to choose the evening to take a picture of this colorful industrial theme park. Excellent to use the blue background to make a nice contrast to the outline. Well done.

eine wunderschöne Aufnahme, die Belichtung schon fast perfekt, die Illumination sehr kräftig rübergebracht...

First shot of yours I've seen in a while. Well done with this one... the different coloured lights are great. Nice catch :)

Great to see the vivid colours of this former industrial place. The construction is also well visible and the picture is well composed. Good work!

This is a nice one. Good colors.Looks like a building from one of those sci fi movies. Nice work on getting it with this clarity.TFS- Vikram

Never seen this before, looks like a huge robot to me ;-)
The colours are wonderful, and shooting this at this time of the day was perfect.
Great colours....very good...!!!!

das Teil in der Mitte sieht aus wie ein Riesen-Roboter. Schöne Lichtinstallation und gut ausgewählte Farben. Gefällt mir.

Here in IJmuiden the steel factory isn’t yet transferred in a piece of art. The colours need to found in the remaining spectrum of a wave. I like the colourful solution in Duisburg of memory of the industrial age.

Good idea, Hermann, to transform this industrial park with its attractive forms, - i like them very much - into another attraction.
Thanks and regards, gerrit

Wonderful color & sharpness. I like the symmetry of the verticals. Well composed too. The emerald green & blue sky, is an unusual color combination.

Hermann this steel mill has incredible lighting. The main structure in the center looks like a monster with those angled pipes looking like arms! Very interesting indeed...thanks for posting!
Graal (94162) 2006-04-17 2:31
unusual colours and theme. I like the composition. Good captured by night and well done photo. I like it.

What a good use of the old steelworks. The lighting has made something of beauty from something ugly. You took it at the right time of day as the still-blue sky makes a perfect background.

De man achter dit licht is een kunstenaar, maar de fotograaf een artist.
Dit is zo moeilijk om te fotograferen, maar u heeft daar een geweldig mooi beeld van gemaakt, kunstig gedaan!
Groeten uit Vlaanderen,

The light installation gives a special glow and look to the industrial scenery, Hermann. A fine quality and vivid colors to this "oldie" that I like quite a bit. Grüße aus Tokio, hier ist es jetzt 23 Uhr und morgen um die Mittagszeit fliege ich über London nach Stuttgart zurück.

What an amazing shot...The somewhat garish colours combine with the lighting of the blue hour to make this a fascinating scene. I am certain Hollywood would find a use for this place in a sci fi movie. Superb lines and graphism. Well captured.

You poster one episode from Star Wars... Lithgs and colors are crazzy, fantastic...

Nice and well framed blue hour shot, the play of colors and their diversity is excellent, it may be a slightly different skyline but reminds a bit of the HSBC building in Hong Kong I've been looking at just a few days ago.
Have a nice day,
jemaflor (77476) 2006-04-18 7:17
These colouful lights are splendid, and bravo for this very well captured night shot.
banyanman (7789) 2006-04-18 10:19
Wow, very impressive capture, Hermann. I thought the colours were for 'real' until I read you note that the mill has been closed down and the lighting is the work of an artist. Nevertheless, it is still a very striking image with good exposure and sharpness. One small point though - your image is tilted slightly to the right. Cheers . . . David

wow, stunning image, very well done, thanx, M, (*_*)

I like this one and commenting thinking about the little boy who call me Papy :-)) because he is fan of robots, and this is looking like.
Very well composed I will show him to have a reaction.

Hi Hermann, I read about this project and it's very nice to see a capture of it from you. The blue hour was of course a good choice and I love the color palet and compo. Xcellent and fascinating work.
Have a nice sunday,

What a fantastic shot Hermann - another project a little like Kalkar in terms of re-using such sites - it's just amazing! Very nicely shot - I guess the intention is to create an image of a giant figure - really nice!
best wishes Kev

Very attractive. Your saturation enhances the picture. Good one Hermann.
