    Nice. I like the organic look of the wiring. Good colour contrast between the blue sky and rusty box too.

    WOW I like the Cables and the sky! they mixed together very nice! Also that Crap box, Kinda I like same what Nexxo said in English ;) haha.

    But really How the hell you guys take this photos! the camera look so nice! I mean the sky is dark and the voltage thing is lighter this is amazing really! This with photoshop for sure.. But I don't know how to do it.

    Yeah Also I have 1 important Question.. how do you do that frame! or the general frames that guys do in POTM! I wish If I know how.. Thanks

    Thanks :)

    CK: i only did some minor editing on this photo, added some contrast and saturated the picture just a little bit. The editing was done with Paint Shop Pro 8, i find it much easier to use than photoshop, and the framing is very easy to make there

    I really like this. The saturation was a great touch and the whole image feels...well, historic. Which is fitting, being as the rusty box. It feels almost like looking at a working piece of a bygone era.

    thanks DD :)
    your comments are really helpful. being an amateur photographer, sometimes i take a pic, that many people like but can't really explain why. comments like yours really help me to understand better what makes a certain shot likeable.

    Glad I could help! :) I see a lot of "I like this," but not many people giving why or how aside from the most technical term. So hopefully I can provide some balance to that, because I frankly suck at the technicals. ;)
