I really like this one Hugo, my kinda shot! The exposure is perfect for this type of image and the orange glow of the steel is quite compelling. Nice work my friend.

Hi Hugo, cool hot shot! There's a definate sense of motion here, yet you did a good job of reaching out and grabbing/stopping it for us to see. It really makes me curious as to the why and how of the metal making process.

Best,
Kes

Hi Hugo....everything is ok and I thank you for your concern.
I went a little ape crazy with the photo shooting and kinda got on my wife's wrong side for being away to much.
Then I got half looped and the wife was kinda letting me have it and I went to my pc and wiped my uf clean.
Well as of now we are doing much much better, I have learned to give the time needed to my wife and it is working out. Even getting a new camera tomorrow :)
I do plan on not getting carried away with the new camera, don't need to undo everything I just fixed.
I will be posting, viewing and commenting again sometime in the future.
Again thanks for dropping me a note.

Hi Lee, What happened to you? I've been away for a while, and I just tried to find you to see what new work you have created... Your portfolio is completely empty, and You've changed your name too! Hope you are fine,

Excellent composition here, Hugo. The diagonal placement of the main picture elements adds a nice dynamic to the whold image. It helps me to "see" the steel bars moving along.

Great action with the sparks, also.

Lori Stitt   {K:75282} 4/24/2005
Hi Hugo,

This is one AMAZING photograph! I LOVE IT!!
Amazing composition and color with fantastic details. Those sparks going 'helter scelter' (sp?) makes it for me.

Superb detail, industrial shot but also abstract as well.

EXCELLENT!!
Lori :)

Hi hugo! :)
Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!!!! Because of this new series of yours I had the courage to actually change the ISO from 200 (the lowest on the D70) up to 800, 1000 and even 1600!!!!!!!
It opened up a lot of new possibilities! Suddenly I don?t need the tripod all the time!!!!!
It feels like the first day I got my D70 all over again! When I pointed at a flower and took an image today it came out exactly and I mean precisely the way I wanted it to!!!
So thank you
((((((((((hugs)))))))))))

Antonia -- thouroughly appreciated -- Hugo.

:)

But I wouldn't be me if I didn't put something else in my reply... I love your description of the noises and feel of those places, a perfect match, maybe not with reality, but with the image. thourougly appreciated! One more to come, probably later today...;)

Cheers,

Hi Lee, thanks, I would appreciate it! This is part of the steel plant, where they convert iron to steel, and then cut the slabs. The milling process will be next, but not the process for making beams, bu t thin steel sheet they use for soda (and beer) cans.

Cheers,

Hugo

Hi Omar, thanks for your comment. And no, they don't let tourists in, but then again, I'm not a tourist...:) This shot was made on assingment, and is used for educational / promotional purposes.

Another image alive with motion and sound (the other roared -- this one screeches), rich, sparkley and engaging. This scene is one we wouldn't ordinarily be able to see unless shared by and "insider" so to speak. Beautiful documentary image! I want to know more. Antonia

Hugo you did get a good tour if you seen this, was at my moms for a few days and ran across a pic from when my dad used to take me, I will grab it next time and scan it.....I think you will find it interesting.
This picture is great...molten hot iron being scaled down to the size....I have seen them make railroad track and it looks very similar to this.
Even at the distance that I seen this you could feel the heat.
Great shot.

Omar Rifaat   {K:10141} 4/19/2005
You capture the infernal atmosphere very well. It reminds me of the movie 'Terminator'! It must have been very hot there.
How did you get in to this place? Just wandered in? I would be surprised if they let tourists in!

A perfect choosen composition for the industrial iron - as iron in a move....from one "object" to another...from one sense to another. A great capture! Excellent!

Hi P.J. Interesting. The weird thing being, that the longer I look at the oveview and the longer I consider your comment and reply, the more I begin to see your point. Just curious, I've used this type of frame before in:

http://www.usefilm.com/image/669043.html
http://www.usefilm.com/image/667056.html
http://www.usefilm.com/image/664481.html.

Not trying to boast / boost my own pictures, but I'm interested; there must be something else, or I would've noticed it before... (At least I like to believe I would've, but in all fairness, I'm only starting to think about it now....;)

Cheers, and thanks!

Hi Manu, I had to take a really close look myself, but I think you're right. If you look at the vertical lines, the angle seems a bit off. Thanks!

Hi P.J. Interesting.... Although the original idea for this type of frame came from Heath Bennet (?), I thought it would fit with this series mainly because of the nature of the subject. The heavy industry requires a heavy frame. Guess not, heh? Maybe I'll have to reconcider, thanks for the constructive comment!

Cheers,

Hugo

L B.   {K:13965} 4/19/2005
Wonderfull shot, have you been in a factory?? You have done a lot of corrections on you're camera haven't you?? The result is excellent, the fire, the flames, the sparkles shooting everywhere. Really gives me a 'busy' feeling, busy with making iron. i like the frame although it could have been a little smaller, i like it that it ain't equal at all sides, but it could have been a little smaller. But no hard feelings overall. An excellent shot! Superb!

Greets,
Lex.

You did excellent what we call it insight out in the two images, showing the outside structure and the inside real "live" work, The control of the camera parameters over high light and perfectly sparks shown, unusual industrial images composition. Well succeeded. Saeed

Hi Hugo,

you handled the exposure very well IMHO. Not too easy to get the right mixture here with the strong differences in luminance and color. ;-)

This shot nicely captures the feel of heavy industrial production, leaving for imagination the heat and loudness of machinery of popping of molten sparks. Just curious about your access to inside this plant?

Mary Sue Hayward   {K:17558} 4/18/2005
These recent industrial shots are so foreign to me. I imagine loud clanking, roaring engines, hot fires, glowing hot molten rivers of steel, the works. The slow shutter enhances the image nicely by showing the sparks and glowing heat as it must appear in person.

Really scary and cool, Hugo!

Den Thompson   {K:30432} 4/18/2005
I agree Usefilm is about photography Hugo, but I also find it very educational when we see things we would not otherwise be able to see. Many times I view an image and a multitude of questions pass through my mind, then I'm left frustrated because there is no "About".
I find this image totally fascinating photographically. The amount of action that must have happened during a 15 sec exposure has been captured so well and the clarity is incredible.
Thank you for sharing such a fascinating shot.

Excellent industrial shot, Hugo. I think the heavy frame adds to the heaviness and solidity of the subject matter...well chosen. I know I'm nit-picking here but even though there are no horizontal lines anywhere the image looks like it need rotating clockwise just a little...but hey!..here's me trying to criticise..?!

Well done and as usual thanks for the support.

Manu

Already from the miniature I had understood that it was your big photography!
Personally I find the photographies charmed in natural light and must say that it is strong and wonderful, many the manners and the qualities of the nature
Take care my friend.. roby
