Amazing to see so many people out at the White Bay Power Station in Rozelle last weekend - and so many of those toting tripods! It was almost a fight to get into a clear spot without including a set of black tripod legs somewhere in the frame. Hopefully the people that opened the site to the public this weekend will do it again at another time.
The queue to get into the main hall was 50-80 people long most of the time so most of us never even got that far! Next time. Thanks to everyone for sending in their shots this week.
|Nuts. Or is it bolts from Fraser Burdon - a really strong black-and-white image - reminiscent prehaps of those 'industrial' images so popular in the 30s and 40s when 'big industry' was still the new frontier, rather then just another polluter.|

|Black-and-white close-up from Alan Stern. |
Nice depth in the black tones here.
|Another great black-and-white image from Matt Baker. The better of the two in my opinion. |
Framing does nice justice to the scale of the place.

Good in colour, could also be strong in black-and-white like Fraser's nuts shot.
|Nice strong (HDR) colour from Ian Caldwell|

|'Yes, it's a Ladder', pic from Lucie Loane.|
Probably needs a better angled light? Not sure how you'd do this other than firing a remote speedlight at an acute angle?
|'Rusty crusty', from Lucie Loane. |
I really like this composition - strong and very 'textural' - could also look hot in BW

Could be improved some by a great depth of field effect (with that 1.4 lens!)
|'Reflection' or 'View thru'? Nice composition by Sue Caldwell|
|Great close-up detail and strong colour! |
One of the best on the day I reckon - unusual angle and view of White Bay power station
