    I like it! The dramatic steam against the blue sky and the bright color of the smoke stack are great! The title is fantastic, Paul!

Thank you for your comments Jim. I'm pleased you like the photo. It was shot on a cold morning (for GA) and with morning light. Best wishes...

I love this shot Paul, what a powerful image of a necessary remnant of the industrial age

Roger... I'm glad you like it. It is an interesting place to shoot with its many railroad tracks, lines of coal cars, large buildings, massive heat exchangers, conveyors, ponds, proximity to the Chattahoochee River, etc. But... since 9/11 they don't always welcome photographers with open arms. So one must be discrete. A telephoto lens helps too! Best wishes...

Vicki, Murry, Lucia, Judith, Ed, Jim, Sanjay, Charlene and Dorothy... Thank you all for your congratulations on my photo and its win. And... special appreciation to those of you who so often encourage me with your comments. It means a lot. I'm travelling on business and am a little slow to learn about the win and respond. Best wishes to you all!!

Congratulations on this win Paul. Well deserved. I am surprised they let you take pictures anywhere near a power plant. Since 911 they are so picky around here what you can and cannot take pictures of

Thank you Donna and Evy for your congratulations. I took this photo from a public road using my telephoto lens. I've tried to get on the grounds proper and they wouldn't let me in. I do have a friend that works there so I may try that in the future. Thanks again and best wishes...
