Power House And Moonrise 2

.
Powerhouse And Moonrise 1

Same power plant, same moonrise as yesterday's photo but a completely difference approach. The previous pic was taken from some distance away with a 24-105mm lens at 55mm and f 16. (The latter really wasn't necessary.) Today's was shot from closer in with a 100-400mm bazooka at 160mm and f 4.8. Both are HDRs.

You can see this smokestack and flag on the far right of the building in yesterday's photo. By the way, this plant is right on the Mississippi (I think they bring fuel deliveries by water) and within view of the Arch. And, of course, tomorrow being Thursday we've got the Big A itself.

belle photo de la pleine lune, et bon choix du b&w (et puis tres americain, le drapeau). Une belle vision de cette vieille usine

I like how the moon is watching over all these different shapes.

I must admit that I liked the picture of yesterday more for showing the whole nature of the building in splendid colors. Here a part with more modern extensions and 3 points making the compositing . Flag ,moon and chimney top. Also by taking away the color I asked myself if it is interesting enough. Yes and no. Had I not seen the picture of yesterday I should say yes.Now I am a bit disappointed.But the lens is working great.
