Fun. Looks like a location for a TV commercial or sci-fi. I'd love to shoot a fashion spread there.

I like how you let the blacks fall off and retained just enough detail in the whites. Very well done!

The last one does it for me.

Great sci-fi mood, indeed!

My favorites are #1, 2 and 3. A shame that you have no images of flying ones!

TFS!

Nice to see such imagination put into something so prosaic - and into photographing it.

#3 is the one for me - but I'd be so tempted to clone out the structure off to the right.

Hi Fred,

What a great location! And what a great capture you've made of it as well.

I'm almost with the others over #'s 1, 2 and 3 except there's quite a lot of bright highlights (in the first two at least) that compete against the 'aliens' which are beautifully smooth and rounded - especially in #1 where these sit right on the lower image border. #3 is much better in that respect - it has a simplicity to it and is made the more so by the shaft of blue light connecting the scene to the sky above.

For me, personally, I am more taken by the closer detail we see in #6 which really does offer an 'other worldly' like scene for us - the smooth transition of the curves and the symmetry work very nicely together in this image as far as I am concerned.

Great to have this close to you and thanks for sharing these images - a fine set!

Best regards, Neil.

That's gotta be the coolest gas station on the planet!

Good find and good timing in terms of the blue hour as well.
I like the set very much but do see stronger possibilities in some.

#2 - losing the bottom third gives an abstract that I find interesting.
#3 - I like the centered compo but wouldn't mind losing some of the top as well as the silo to the right.
#4 - losing the bottom 4th or getting rid of the highlights might give a stronger pic.
#5 - Again I find the highlights distracting.
#6 - This is what I'm talking about - a clean image without distractions. Could use a slight CCW rotation.
#7 - Is it tilted to the right? Can't be. I know you to be meticulous. Again the highlights are a bit distracting.

This is more of how I'd imagine presenting the pics myself - NOT a criticism of your work.

Nice job and TFS

Regards
Sashi

Excellent set, Fred!
Very well done, I love your eye for framing. My favourites are 1 and 3.
