Just waiting on some work, the very next morning these craines were busy, maybe Sunday was day off when I took this photo.
This is at the Container Terminal in Greenock.
They have steady work. although not so much as in past,
although the very next morning a large passenger ship arrived and they were busy.
B & W thought suited the mood.
Colour is in the workshop.

I also prefer the black and white version as it suits the strong graphical lines of the cranes and the fencing below; also the industrial nature of the subject. The range of tones is OK but I can't help thinking the image would benefit from a boost in contrast. Just a personal point of view. Good to hear they are still in use.

I would agree that the toning is not quite right, but I think that there is a very strong image lurking in here somewhere. Maybe you need to get on the other side of the fence (without being arrested) to achive a slightly more dramatic angle. Very nice though, well done. Thanks,

Very interesting in B&W, and the other of WS is beautiful too.This is more dramatic that other. TFS

Interesting industrial era shot. Great shot of black and white for such a subject.

Hello Robert,, Interesting shot, I took one at Port Melbourne from a distance & thought it looked like a high chair, when I saw the thumbnail I recognised these container cranes, curious looking things aren't they? BW a wise choice, making more of an impact, although I like the colour as well.

Robert, good evening.
I like this one, it suits B&W very well, it has the feel of three animals in a zoo with the railing at the front. A light touch on the contrast button would improve it for me. But it is how you like it that counts.
All the best
