Don't know where this belongs, but I am quite fascinated by the structures of large land power lines.
So here's a snap of the insulators against the sky, called...

Nice shot, very "industrial" so to speak the contrast in the B&W is perfect!

The sky seems to be a bit "angry" which suits this type of photograph in a really nice manner.

The only C&C i can give on this shot would be to see this image straightened, having those two power sources or what they are called at 90 degrease

That's a cool shot Thomas!

Made me think of Niccolo Tesla there for a sec. Would be tempting to photoshop some lightning to snake around them..lol.

Good contrast going on.

Cheers :-)

Thanks for your comments so far.
I captured another one which is actually the ladder where the service technician climbs to the top of the mast.

thomas these pictures are brilliant.. i love the black and white and the perfect contrast/exposure that you achieved here.. my favorite has got to be the 2nd one but the first one is still great!!.. in the 2nd on i love the way the sunlight is shining on one side of the ladder.. very nice.

Hi,

Two great shots there, I like this sort of thing, alot of people just walk straight past and take no notice.

What you have done is created real art form this - brilliant!!

I like the exposure and the feel that you have captured in both it really works, I also photograpgh these pylons, but not as well as this -

Thanks for sharing

I've worked on the subject a little more, this time taking a fisheye to the masts and hoping a brooding sky and clouds would transform this into something unreal.

Here is what I got:

Like a structure leading directly into space:

I like the first one from under. I'm wondering if you introduced deliberate vignetting to take out the trees, would it give the impression of looking at a planet from a space structure?

Can't the magnetic field generated by the powerlines affect the camera?
