I have always been a fan of industry and infrastructure as art, and power distribution gives us so many complex lines to look at. I've looked through your "surreal energy" series, and this is my favorite of the batch.

The red sky matches the mood in sort of an industrial dystopian sense -- a bright blue sky would have left this image much less effective. The capturing of the subjects in silhouette captures their essential value, that being their form rather than their color or detail. The two boxes with red lights act as both primary and secondary subjects, while also leading the eye further back in to the plane. The use of a limited depth of field to put the more complex far plane slightly out of focus makes the entire composition both more natural looking and less chaotic.

A superb shot in a superb series. :)

Hi,

Do you think that I could perhaps have or purchase these photos without the watermark in high resolution? I would love to use them as a background on my composing website.

Thank you in advanced.

I've seen similar images and there's something very... I can't put my finger on it, but very different in them.

This is so awesome, I don't have words enough to describe the feelings a picture like this wake in me. All the stories line up in my head. I feel like travelling by trains, anywhere. And I get this insane need for drawing these pictures. I love that!
Your surreal energi series are great works! Thank you for making and sharing it with the world! =3

As I now read you're a great fan of music, these images made me think of another Deviant: `smashmethod. Check out his albums Idlejam - a jarful of goodies [link] and Fictionalhead - it only ends once [link] It might be your cup of tea, or it might not...

Have a nice day =)
