Weekly Competition #247 - Heavy Metal Competition
No, not the music! I have always been fascinated by large metal structures, especially bridges and old mine workings, and the use of metal in large machines like ships, railway locomotives, aircraft, cranes etc. One of my favourite photographs is the famous picture of Isambard Kingdom Brunel, perhaps the godfather of "heavy metal", standing next to some huge metal chains.
I would like to see your images showing the use of metal in heavy engineering, ancient or modern, with the emphasis on the word "heavy". No images of machines like the Airbus A380 that make extensive use of composites please.
I am hoping to be surprised by a few entries, and will score the images on similar lines to Axel in the previous competition, with points for originality (which can include processing), composition, technique and adherence to/interpretation of the theme.
I look forward to seeing your entries!
