A very fine set.
In the first one I very much like the ambiguity of scale. I can't tell if the near forms are mountain tops or wind-blown snow, and the distant towers are too far away to resolve the question.

All three are very evocative.

Thanks, Eric and Dan.

#1 is a 30-s exposure 45 minutes after sunset. I was waiting for a moonrise shot, which didn't work out. The distant objects are tree plantations at farmsteads.

All good, but the best for me is #3. The simple stark appearance of the pylon is very nicely set off by the pastel colours in the background. it just works.

Oh my! Geez! What god forsaken place is this?  My favorite is number 3, especially the pastel color in winter light.  Did you check that your radiator didn't freeze?

Thanks, everyone.

Jeremy -- I want to do some more of these from further back, longer lens, smaller pylon, more space.

HSakols -- southern Saskatchewan. A little forsaken, sure, but this helps to simplify the compositions.

This is a good set. Image #1 and #3 are my favorite. I like the simplicity of image #3 with this pylon and the gorgeous sky behind.

Scott, the second is interesting I don't know about the capture though. I like some aspects/tone of third...but might have tried shooting optionally a fraction more obliquely...i.e. cam loc...little to the left...so the horiz. arms are a little more visible.

Thanks, Francois, Martin, Pikeys.

Brandt: re #3, your thoughts echo mine in the field. Just the usual meager excuses about possible and impossible angles what with excluding a road but not able to walk deep into the snowy field. I'm scouting better locations.
#2: I'd be glad to hear your reservations about the capture.

Scott  - it is difficult to tell about the sharpness in this down-rezd image...that was my only question. Also did you look at centered as well?

Brandt, I need to up my game in these conditions to get to the sharpness standard we would expect for milder weather. Handling a tripod and a t/s lens at -20 is hard on the hands, and then there's the futility of it because of wind. Hard but not impossible.
The bins are offset because they seemed to work with the flow of the snow that way.
Thanks for the feedback!

On # 2,I rely like the way the sun is hitting the metal tanks,and the line of sky on the right ,is leading the eye toward those tanks.
Just my .02cents

I am partial to the third because of the Belt of Venus, always a luscious sight.
