    Congratulations on your well deserved win! Really well done composition, very natural looking imho.

    Well done on your first Panachallenge win. I'm sure it won't be the last!

Having looked at your outtake photos I admit that what I had thought were 'joins' weren't. As you said, I did think the black/gold horizontals were blended as they really look blended. I could even visualise the photos they 'were' taken from :-) . The similar wisps of smoke from each stack and the patch of light shining through the main smoke also looked 'wrong' to me but I see now that you had 'enhanced' the smoke/light considerably giving the 'not quite right/natural' look.

Well done again for the win. I wait in anticipation to see what theme you choose :-) .

    Thanks everyone - thanks for the comments and voting for my photo!
I did not expect this win at all, specially with SteveBee's photo in the mix.
A.N.Other, I am sure you did not really spot the "joins" in this image, did you? Other than the glow around the towers as aoc46 mentioned. The black and gold horizontal lines are actually taken from the original photo and they are not blended. I have to admit, they look "added in"
:-)

    Congrats Mercury!

It is time for school, so please post your originals in the outtakes forum. (never did see the ones from the last challenge, by the way)

    i'm intrigued - how is this a composite? is the sky from another scene?

    Gorgeous industrial landscape! The back lighting, color and smoke from the towers are all handled nicely, and work well together, to form a striking image.

This is one of my top favorites in this challenge.

    Very impressive sunset. A bit over-processed for my taste but I'm sure it will do well.

    This photo of yours certainly has impact. I love the colour but I keep noticing the joins between the photos the shot is made from and this detracts from the overall effect somewhat.

    I love the light in this shot. Great composition showing the rural/natural and industrial worlds existing side by side. A fave.

    Beautifull lighting, and great composition. The soft details in the foregoround give depth to the image.

    Well composed, nice colors. Beautiful clouds, the silhouettes of the buildings are enough to give an industrial impression. In my favorites.

    Very impressive scene - fits the theme well. I find the bright halos on the cooling towers a bit disturbing - maybe over-sharpened?

    A great shot, with lots of silhouetted interest. Right on theme and in my TT.
