excellent. families with children sleeping and living and eating, feeling safety and security in the privacy of their own home. but looming over them are these two stacks, symbols of a very provocative issue. this picture works because it sees both points of view. 1 - people can live and be safe with nuclear power. or 2 - nuclear power cast a shadow over humanity. so in terms of the title, juxtaposition, i think this is a winner. also there are great tones and lovely clarity. nice onemy weddings website
Great shot, looks as if those chimneys are in someones backyard which I suppose they are, love those different roof slates and those recycling bins add to the enviromental thread running thriugh the image. As Iorek suggested lovely clarity and tones.'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths

If I see something I "SHOOT!"
Thanks, Bridget, for your comment and rating. What's pouring out of those cooling towers is steam, not smoke. Even on a cloudless day, we can always count on a few low-hanging "clouds" from the nuclear power plant! -Brian
Thanks very much, Yakographer, Chris, Tim and Herve. I really appreciate everyone's comments on this photo. Chris, to answer your question, it can be surprisingly difficult to get a decent unobstructed shot of these things. Plus, like most everyone else around here, I tended to ignore them most of the time. (I think that's a collective, semi-deliberate blind spot...) -Brian
