Bethlehem Steel I

Kathleen, as a photography lover and someone with an interest in model trains this shot is more than fantastic. I sure hope you having it hanging on a wall somewhere, if I had taken it I would having it hanging. Wonderful. Thank-you.

This is now my favorite. Amazing detail and composition. I love the soft mood and colors.

Wow, mind-blowing and fantastic! Was the sky REALLY that color, or did you do something to it in Photoshop??

The sky was really weird that night, I have to say. The color was strange and it cast a strange light on those abandoned buildings and vehicles. I increased the saturation in Photoshop to bring up the color a little better than the camera captured it. The sky really added to the mood of those poor abandoned buildings that evening.

Impossible. I just drove by this site a week ago and never thought it could look as dreamy as you have portrayed it. Very nice work.

There's a Grant Lee Buffalo song titled Bethlehem Steel. I have always loved the song; it paints this great picture of life in a steel town. Until I saw this photo, I never knew the place was real. I was thrilled to see that the real thing surpasses my own imagination! Wonderful shot!

Nothing like a little abandonment and some rust to make a magical scene. And where nature left off, you took over nicely.

Wonderful shot. I grew up looking at this plant every day of my life. I remember when looking at the blue flame on top of those blast furnaces and listening to the constant rumble would lull me to sleep. Great job.

Absolutely beautiful shot. Industrial wastelands can be quite eerie and evocative.
